Once you have created your custom fields, upload the same in your learner's tab. Go to the learner's tab and click on upload.

Now, click on Upload to import the selected excel file. And click on import.

Once the learner list is updated, we will send you a mail detailing all the learners who have been successfully added to the course.

Note: The user id and password of the learner will be his/her email id and 'password' by default. They can change it later by signing in to their account.

Note: Use the marketing section to send emails to your students. Send up to 2000 emails per day.
