Build the family data files by following the format indicated below.

Family (.txt or.csv)

This file identifies all parents or guardians that have a child who uses Xello in their school or college.

Each parent/guardian will be on a separate row.

Column Name Type Description
ParentFirstName char(100) Parent/guardian first name
ParentLastName char(100) Parent/guardian last name
Email char(100) Parent/guardian email address. This email address will be used as their Xello login.
