About Lead and Scores Upload from Spreadsheet
This Campus Cafe function is used for two purposes.
First, the Campus Cafe system can accept a spreadsheet containing information on admissions leads. The system will create new inquiry records for individuals on the spreadsheet without existing records in Campus Cafe. Existing records will not be updated. The system may be configured to map each column in the spreadsheet to a data element in Campus Cafe. This provides institutions the flexibility to upload spreadsheets of different formats/layouts.
Second and separately, the Campus Cafe system can accept a spreadsheet containing scores from tests (e.g. ACT or SAT) for new or existing leads, applicants or students. The system may be configured to map each column in the spreadsheet to a data element in Campus Cafe. This provides institutions the flexibility to upload spreadsheets of different formats/layouts such as from the College Board's SAT file or the ACT score file. For any individual on the spreadsheet the system cannot match to an existing person record in Campus Cafe the system will create a new record for the individual.
Prerequisites for Uploading Leads
- Recommended that the semester the inquiries plan to attend are established in Campus Cafe under STParms.
Prerequisites for Uploading Scores
- Required that score headers (test types) be configured
Matching Records to Existing Leads/Applicants/Students
Upon upload, Campus Cafe will attempt to match individuals in the spreadsheet to existing person records within Campus Cafe.
Upon a match with a lead, applicant or student, biographical information will not be updated or added.
Upon a match with a lead, applicant or student, scores will be added to the person's record. Scores for individuals who do not exist in Campus Cafe will have a person record created and scores added. For records the system identifies as possible matches, the system will email a list to the email addresses entered into the field at the top of the Scores Upload page. Conflicting data can be changed in Campus Cafe or on the spreadsheet to match and the entire spreadsheet, or just the possible matches, reuploaded.
Score records that match on the below will automatically be added to existing people in Campus Cafe
- Match on Social Security Number
- Match on first name, last name and date of birth
- Match on first name, first 8 positions of street address and city
- Match on email address and date of birth
- Match on first name, last name, email address, and home or mobile phone
The holding table is not used in this process.
The file should contain a header (first) row with information describing the data in each column. The column headers (descriptions) may be anything.
The file must be saved in .xlsx or .xls (Excel). A .csv (comma separated value) format is not supported.
Configure Column Mapping for Leads and/or Scores Upload
