-If you will be creating several slots you may prefer to create them by uploading a comma separated value (CSV) file containing slot configuration information with one line of data per slot. An easy way to create this type of file is to use a spreadsheet application such as Microsoft Excel, and save the file as a Text (CSV) file.  If you use a text editor directly to create the file, you should use double quotes around any values which themselves contain a comma (e.g., lit of proctor ids).

To upload a file press the \textbf{Upload Slot List} button on top of the page. On the first page, select the file with the slot data to upload by pressing the \textbf{Browse button}. There is an option to ignore the first line. This is useful when the first line of your comma delimited file consists of headers for each field. You can also upload space and tab delimited file by changing the type combo box. Press \textbf{Upload} to upload the file.
