Hi, I'm setting up a new Sync profile (deleted our old one) and want to create a test Team with using SDS and csv uploads. We do have lots of current teams set up either manually, or via SDS from ages ago. My question is: Do I need to put ALL EXISTING students in the students.csv file and same with the teachers.csv, or can these just contain the users I want to do the testing on?

 

And I also want to confirm that I won't wreck the current Teams that exist in any way, like it won't remove students from their current Teams and only put them in my testing team?

 

Thanks.

Hi Sherrie,

You can setup a separate profile for testing with only a subset of the users, no need to include everyone.

A new SDS profile will also not interfere with your existing environment.
