You can bulk import outcomes for your account using a CSV file. A bulk import allows you to add new outcomes to your account or update the details of multiple outcomes at one time.
The CSV file must be formatted correctly according to the Outcomes Import Format Documentation. If you don't want to create a new CSV file, you can download the Outcomes Export report from Canvas, change it, and re-upload the same file.
After your CSV file has been processed, you will receive an email notification confirming a successful import or displaying errors with your file. If there were errors, the email will contain details about the first 100 errors including the row of the error and a short description.

The error message displays for outcome import errors and for outcome import warnings.
You will receive an email with details about the first 100 errors and warnings. Each error or warning will include the CSV row number and a description of the error or warning.
