The LCSR Upload Templates are pre-formatted with each of the LCSR record data elements. You can populate these with your data and use them instead of creating the text file described in LCSR Data File Upload. You can also download them from the LCSR Upload Data link:
Alternatively, you can create your own Excel workbook with your data, as long as it is formatted like the one of the templates. You can also convert your Excel workbook to a text file prior to upload. However, we highly recommend using the templates provided.
The templates include a Facility ID column, to allow data for multiple facilities to be included in a single file. If the Facility ID column is left blank, data for that row will be uploaded to the facility currently selected in the facility picker.
Version 1.7 will be in effect on or after December 1, 2023, at which time both versions 1.6 and 1.7 will be accepted.
