We have around 3000 students enrolled in short courses (in the medical field) and would like to have them in specific groups based on a custom profile field (their designation).
We've identified a simple solution (that doesn't require development) for students going forward - adding new self-enrolment groups to courses that correspond to the custom profile field and for groups that are enrolled from .csv, adding the group there.
But we're stuck on how to best manage current and past students... I can see adding them to a cohort would be simple using bulk user actions, but there doesn't seem to be a similar way to add students to groups. (We need to use groups as this is what will show up on the awarded certificates report)
So we need students who are nurses or midwives in one group and all other designations in another group.
Anyone know of a simple/time efficient way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any help!
