If you do not have an xml ready to use for your import, then you will need to run a report from your MIS and export the results as an xml file. If you have SIMS as your MIS, you can import the reports in the folder below and then run and export them to create the xml files:
If you are using an MIS system other than SIMS, please contact our online helpdesk.
Importing staff or children
First click the "Browse" button at the bottom right of the page. This will open a window where you can browse files on your computer - find the xml file you are going to use for the import. Once done, click the "Upload" button at the bottom right of the page. This will import the xml file into Cura, and the name of the file will be shown in the middle of the page.
Wait for 30 seconds, then refresh your browser or click the refresh button at the top left of this page. The file you imported will now have been replaced by two new files, one with a .consumed extension and the other with a .log extension. The .consumed file is a copy of the file that you originally uploaded. If Cura did not create accounts for any of the people in the xml file that you uploaded, the .log file will explain why.
If you wish to view either of the files, you will need to download them first. To do this, first select them using the checkboxes next to their names. Once done, click the Download button, which is a green arrow pointing down found at the top left of the page.
Once Cura has completed the import, the existence of these files will not affect the users or children in your system. Therefore you can delete these files if you wish (though the .log file may be useful later if a staff member has not had an account created for them - see our FAQ for more on this).
