How do I add or import administrators?
Sadlier Connect administrators can add more administrators individually or by importing. A Sadlier Connect administrator account has additional functionality that teacher accounts do not include.
- Can set school settings.
- Has access to additional reporting and can see all instructor reports.

The template file is a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file. A CSV is a plain text file that contains a list of data that you can edit with Excel, Google Docs Spreadsheet, Numbers (mac application), or other similar software.
Creating the Import File
Many import file columns are required, and Sadlier Connect requires the exact order of columns as seen in the template. Omitting information in a necessary column for a row will result in an error. The first row is example data.
| Action (required)
Enter A to add a new administrator account to the system.
Enter U to update an existing administrator account already in the system.
|Unique User ID (Optional)
|This field allows you to keep a unique identifier for the user account from another system.
|Usernames need to be unique within your school's Sadlier Connect site. The username provided in this column will be what the administrator uses to log in to Sadlier Connect™. If you plan to integrate after importing teachers, you should use their school email address in this field.
|A password is required, and administrators can change the password of their accounts.
|First Name (Required)
|This field is required.
|Middle Initial (Optional)
|This field is optional.
|Last Name (Required)
| This field is required.
|Email address (Required)
|We recommend using the administrator's school email address if available.
|Status Active/Inactive (Required)
| When Sadlier Connect reads "active" in this field, the account is immediately available for use. The value "Inactive" will disable an account, and the administrator will not be able to log in.
|School PID (Optional - District Only)
|This field is unnecessary and only used by internal Sadlier Connect processes. You will not provide any value in this field.
Saving the Administrator Import File
- Please remember to remove the example row before saving your administrator import file.
- Save your administrator import file by selecting File > Save As...
- In the File Format section of the Save As screen, make sure it is Comma Separated Values (.csv) if it is not already.
Sadlier Connect will only import Comma Separated Values (.csv) file formats. Please be sure to select the correct file format, Comma Separated Values (.csv), when saving your file.
Uploading the import file
- Return to the Import Administrators page in Sadlier Connect.
- Click the "Choose File" button and find the CSV file you created.
- Click the Continue button.
Sadlier Connect will check the import file for errors. In the image below, the system detected errors in the file. Above the column labels is a scroll bar. Scroll to the right, and there is a message to indicate what caused the error. The error message indicates the Action was left blank for one of the administrators in this situation. If you get an error on any rows, they will not import, and you should fix them in the file and upload the new saved CSV.
