Import training courses into the catalog

Before you get started

When you first roll out Poplee Training, or during the year, you need to import new training courses into your catalog.

To do this, you need to download the import file in your language and then you must follow the instructions below to complete it.

(FR) Import du catalogue / (EN) Catalog Import / (ES) Importación del catálogo / (DE) Import Katalog

This import is used to create new training courses in draft status and new organizations, but not to update existing training courses or organizations.

Steps to follow

If your rollout of Poplee Training is complete, we recommend carrying out an initial test on your test database before proceeding with the “real” import.  

Complete the file import template

Please note that the import file must remain in Excel format and the structure of the file must not be modified. (The header contains two lines) 

Fill in the columns of the import file, using the table below as a guide:
