The Academic Terms import, is used to create the structure of a campuses annual schedule within the Campus Lab’s products. Academic Terms will be used on the Course Evaluation and Outcomes interface for filtering course sections when creating administrations or searching for course sections. They are also used to define reporting parameters.
- The Terms import is hierarchical. This is achieved in the import by populating the "ParentIdentifier" column, with the "TermIdentifier" of the Term that the part of term record falls within. The part of term should have begin and end dates that fall within the date of the parent term.
- Terms must be in the system before course section data is imported.
- Once a Term is created it cannot be deleted. If is important to have your file as accurate as possible before it is imported.
- The Name, BeginDate, EndDate, ParentIdentifier and Type of a Term can be updated by importing an updated file with the new information.
