Course Evaluations file-based imports provide native support for .CSV files encoded for the Windows-1252 character set. UTF-8 files can be ingested and converted to Windows-1252 encoding for extended characters via a configuration setting option.

This feature will appear as a checkbox under the file selection button when performing manual imports. 


The default for enabling this conversion is configured in Imports->Import Settings. If set here: 

  1. All automated imports will be assumed to be UTF-8 encoded and will be converted to Windows-1252 encoding. 
  2. The default for doing this conversion will be enabled when performing manual imports. This option can be deselected on an import-by-import basis. 

NOTE: that if the new option is selected and files are already encoded for Windows-1252 the conversion process will improperly convert extended characters.
