On the Matching Web-Site (https://matching.in.tum.de/) you can access the “Matching System” via the “Login” button, using your TUMonline access information(TUMonline login).
After logging in, all courses (matching specifications) available for matching and their times will be listed.
Trough clicking on a course you will access the central information-page of the selected course.
If you are the administrator of one of the courses selected for matching (eg. in TUMonline), all these courses will be listed in “My courses”.
Trough clicking on the course name you will be referred to its course page in the Matching System. Additionally to the name of the course, this page will show you the course capacity, its associated faculty and its position in the lecture plan for the Bachelor and Master Degree and if available, will show you a link to its TUMonline page. If you are one of the administrators you will see the registered administrators for this course.
During the “courses preference selection time” the Course Organizer or Tutor can add and edit his preferences and capacity using the “edit” button at the bottom of the page.
Additionally two searchable lists are available, showing students interested in your course. The top left hand lists shows all students originally interested in your course. It contains the students the least preferable for you. The list on the bottom left hand shows all students inacceptable for your course (in red).
Using Drag&Drop you can move students between lists. Students dragged into the lists on the right hand side are your preferred students for your course. Rank the right hand list by assigning your most preferred student rank number one. More than one student can be assigned to one rank, meaning you show no preference between those students.
The students shown in the following format:
Name Surename (Matriklnr., Type of study (Nr.) - Semester)
Max Musterman (04752427, MSc Informatik (16 030) - 2)
Use the “save” button to save your preferences. During the preference selection time you can change your preferences using the “edit” button at any time.
Please keep in mind that the ranking of the students is not continuous. If two students are ranked as number one, the next student will occupy the third position instead of the second one.

TUM-Online changed the import-format from CSV to XML. The export out of the Matching-System don't worke anymore. You can download a Phyton-Program to konvert the CSV-File to the new XML-type here:
First you have to export all students. Second you have to add all CSV-Files to one (semina, practica-course, pro-seminar). Possibly you have to work on the CSV-File.
If a students have more then one course of studies, the Matching-system exports more than one Studien-ID's. For import you can use only one Studien-ID. Please, delete obsolete Studien-ID's in comunication with the student.
To import exchange-students is not possiblye, please delete them from the CVS-File and insert them manual to your course. Exchange-students MatrikelNr.-Filed start with "ExST_..."
Example subject: "TUMonline-Import I18"
We have a 40 students minimum for the TUMonline-Import, because we have to import all CSV-Files manual.
Be sure that you have created LV-Gruppe = Standardgruppe! Without 'Standardgruppe' we are not able to import the data.
