For Infocare users
Early learning services who use Infocare for their childcare management software can export a list of their children to upload to Storypark. Simply follow the steps below.
When you first set up your early learning service, you can upload multiple children really quickly from your Infocare account. Just follow the steps below.
1. Go to your early learning service's ‘Children’ page.
2. Find the ‘Add new child’ link and under this click ‘or add multiple children’.
3. Under ‘Step 1’, download and open the spreadsheet template provided:
4. Go into your Infocare account.
5. Select ‘Child’ from the top righthand menu (the blue jigsaw piece).
6. Select the ‘Child details’ folder.
7. Select ‘Print options’.
8. Select Spreadsheet category ‘First name’, ‘Last name’, ‘Birthday’, ‘Gender’.Note: remember to take out any extra lines/search fields other than the four stated above.
9. Select ‘Create file’.
10. Open the file.
11. Copy and paste each column of children's details from your Infocare file to the Storypark template you’ve downloaded. Begin underneath the headings ie. on row 2, making sure to follow the format provided exactly:
12. When you’ve finished click ‘Save’.Note: it must be saved in the same format provided (a .CSV file).
13. Click the ‘Choose file’ button and find the template you’ve just edited (check your computer’s ‘Downloads’ folder if you can’t find it):
14. Click the ‘Import’ button and wait for the children to be imported.
Each time you add multiple children, make sure you download a new blank template rather than reusing an existing one with children already added, so you don’t create duplicates of the children.
