Sensei LMS has native functionality that enables you to import courses, lessons and questions. For first-time course creators, this means you can get started more quickly by importing course content during setup, while existing sites can update their course content more easily.
To import new content or update existing content, you need one or more CSV files containing the necessary information. There are a few options available to you:
1(true) in your CSV files when importing a boolean (true or false) value.
id:if referencing a new ID (e.g.
>, and multiple categories are separated with commas.
If content failed to import, it means that an unrecoverable error was encountered. This can happen if a required field is missing, for example.
To help you find the problem, the CSV filename, title of the course / lesson / question, line number and error are displayed. After fixing the CSV file and removing any rows that have already been imported, you can run the import process again.
A partial import indicates that the content was created or updated, but some problem occurred that prevented it from being fully imported. Examples of partial imports include specifying a course or lesson prerequisite that wasn’t found, or providing an invalid URL for a featured image.
To help you fix partially imported content, a link to the content, as well as the line number in the CSV file and the warning are displayed. Clicking on any of the links will open the content in a new tab, where you can make the necessary updates.
