Learner Upload to Hone Platform

  • Updated

Through the Hone platform, you can easily upload a list of learners. Uploading this list enables learners to seamlessly sign into the Hone platform without setting up individual profiles. Additionally, this functionality allows for the effortless invitation and enrollment of learners. The information you input will also be readily displayed in the Learner tab of the platform.

Before Getting Started

  • If you have HRIS integrated, your HRIS system will override the information in the CSV upload every night. 
  • Learners cannot update their pre-loaded demographic information during profile setup but will be able to set their timezone.   
    • If there were fields not uploaded during CSV upload, the learner can add those fields during the account setup upon the first login. 
  • Below are the required and optional columns. You can download the .csv template in step 3.  
    • Required column names: first_name, last_name, and employee_email
    • Optional column names: employee_id, job_title, department, location, and manager_email
  • Please complete the Admin Support Form if you need to update a learner's email address.
