To add a student, click on the Achievements tab and then search the page for the achievement you need to change and click Add.
Clicking Add will take you into into the achievement granting workflow. There you will see a notice at the top of the page to alert you that this achievement has been previously published and a link to it on your Merit page:
To add students, scroll down to the "Who is being recognized for this achievement?" section. There you will see another highlighted box letting you know how many students are already part of this achievement.

The columns and column headers must be identical. If you need a version of your file that will match up, click on the "Download a template spreadsheet" link.
Once you have added the necessary students, scroll to the bottom of your page.
