If you have set up an SSO solution, you might want to prepare the experience for the students in Loops before they have logged in the first time. Then you have an option to also import them to the system. That will give you the possibility to for example start a loop and invite the right group to it, so when the students log in the first time the loop will be on their start page already.
Read more about how to import users in the article Import all students (and teachers) at once.
In this special case you won’t need to fill out the whole template. You can leave out the passwords and the role out (if you already have the roles set up in your SSO solution).
