Importing a Structured Study Plan
print icon

Structured Study Plan can take a long time to create, but it's possible to speed up the process by assembling your plan in spreadsheets and uploading them through our CSV Importer tool. In this article, we'll cover how to do that.


Note: When creating spreadsheets, it's important to fill out information accurately. This article is split into two sections, Study Tasks and Study Task Groups; each section has a sub-section breaking down their respective spreadsheets. Be sure to read those sections carefully before proceeding.

Before You Begin

Before importing Study Tasks, it is important to note that, due to a quirk in the importing process, it is necessary to first establish an empty "Parent" Study Task that all your imported Study Tasks will upload within, as "Children."  The "Parent Study Task needs to be created as a Study Task, not as a Study Task Group. Then, once created, you will need to manually shift all newly built Study Tasks to the "Parent" level, and delete your original empty Study Task. We recommend giving your temporary Study Task a simple name, like "1".

  1. Navigate to your course in BluePrint, and click on Study Tasks on the left navigation bar.
  2. Type "1" into the text box.
  3. Press Enter on your keyboard.
  4. Click on Save.

Importing Study Tasks

Study Task import template can be downloaded here.


  1. Createnew spreadsheet (we recommend Google Sheets).
    • Set the following column headers:
      name parent_study_task_name task_item_type task_item_category_id task_item_ids
  2. Fill out the spreadsheet with the appropriate task item ids.
  3. Export the spreadsheet as a CSV.
  4. In BluePrint, navigate to Other Tools > Import content.
  5. Upload your Study Tasks CSV under the "Study Tasks" section.
  6. Click on Import Content at the bottom of the page.

You have successfully imported your Study Tasks! It will take some time to process, and you can track the import from the Activity Log.

Study Task CSV Headers: A Breakdown

Here's a breakdown of what each column must include:

  1. name
    1. The Study Task name, as it will appear to the learner 
  2. parent_study_task_name
    1. The name of the Parent-Level Study Task you have already created (in our example it is "1")
  3. task_item_type
    1. Possible Inputs:
      1. lessons
      2. flash_cards
      3. practice_questions
      4. tests
  4. task_item_category_id
    1. Leave blank
  5. task_item_ids
    1. The IDs of lessons, flashcards, or practice questions that belong within the study task
    2. Must be separated by commas
    3. Task item ids can be found on the edit page of each study task item, or by exporting the relevant content to their own CSVs. 

NOTE: There is currently no tool for importing Study Task Groups. You will need to create a CSV and send it to your BenchPrep contact, who will import it for you.
