  6. Click Finish, this will take you back to the overview page where you can check the import.



We recommend that you do not import the registration data until all registration and deregistration processes have been completed in VIS-online.

If this is not possible, we recommend that you do not deregister members from the course individually, but instead use the following procedure:

  1. Remove all enrollment data from your course's Members management.
  2. Export the current list from VIS:online again.
  3. Import the current list into OpenOlat again.

Please note: OpenOlat suggests to send info mails when members register or deregister. You can customize the text of these mails or not send them at all to avoid confusion.
