Before you start using Sonia, you may have Supervisor/Academic/Liaison data that you would like to have imported into Sonia. We can do this by using the Supervisor Template spreadsheet at the bottom of this article. Once you have completed the template, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will import the Supervisors into your Test environment.
The only columns that are required on the template are FirstName and LastName; the rest are optional. Please note that you cannot shuffle the columns around or add new columns as that will cause issues.
Supervisors are the people who oversee the academic side of the placement. They are often staff/faculty or adjunct staff/faculty of the university. As an example, they could be a Lecturer, Academic, Tutor, Coordinator, Consultant.
