Developer Area/Specifications in Development/Groups csv create
From Mahara Wiki
The following changes would need to be made to allow this.
Create a groupid or shortname which is unique (but can also be null) Create a csvfile structure for uploading csvs to create groups Create a csvfile structure for uploading csvs to enrol users into groups
The group idnumber will be a unique field that holds a shortname or groupid which is different from the already present id field (which is only for the database)
We could either have a nullable field in db, that we enforce uniqueness on or we could have a unique non-nullable field in db, and provide some unique default to store (which can be changed).
CSV to create groups
This file will need to have group name, group shortname, group desc, group type
CSV to enrol users into groups
This file will need to have group shortname, user studentid
- The studentid will be focused on to start with, then other ways of identifying the user may be created, such as username or email
