What can we help you find?
One of our core values at Joint Accreditation is to ensure we are listening to and meeting the needs of our accredited providers. As a result of feedback from our community, we promised that the upgraded JA-PARS, launched in November 2021, would support tab-delimited TXT batch upload templates for one year. As a result, the TXT template will be retired as of December 16, 2022.
Why We’re Retiring the TXT Templates
We want to ensure that reporting your activity and learner credit data in JA-PARS is as smooth and efficient as possible. TXT templates utilize data fields that are no longer collected in the system and assign an end date that may not be accurate for your activities, requiring you to manually review and potentially update all of your activity end dates. This method also does not allow you to close your activities in JA-PARS.
What This Means for You
We recommend uploading your 2022 activities using the Excel template. The Excel batch upload allows for more seamless batch uploads for both activity and learner credit data.
We’ve highlighted a list of resources below, also available in JA-PARS under their respective batch upload tabs:
