You can quickly create new study sets from existing text documents by using our Import tool.

Preparing Your Document

Open an existing document or create one from scratch. Any word processing program (like Google docs, Microsoft Word, Excel, Pages, or TextEdit) will work.

Make sure your terms and definitions are separated by either a comma, tab, or symbol of your choice. Your rows must also be separated by either a new line, semicolon, or different custom symbol. Check that these symbols are consistent throughout the document.

For example, on this document terms and definitions are separated by a tab, and each new line is a row:
