      Description

      As a course teacher, I have very big groups (+200 students). The students to be put in groups by me (the teacher), according to their skills and progress. I am not a Moodle admin. I have spreadsheets (Excel) where I evaluate my students and where I can filter and group them by skill-level. So I have the groups I want to create, in Excel. But the Moodle group import function only allows me to create empty groups. And then I would have to manually do a lot of mouse clicks (with a large potential human error margin) to assign each student to the correct group. PLEASE improve the "import groups" function so that existing users within a course can be also be added to groups via .csv import. I found issue https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-28229 which requests the same, but it was closed years ago
