If you are using the Schoology-Infinite Campus Rostering Integration via the SGY Data Exchange app, you can provision parent accounts into Schoology.
To provision parent users using the SGY Data Exchange app and Auto-Import, please follow the steps below:
Step 1 — Map the Parent role in Auto-Import
As the System Admin for the integration, navigate to the Import > Auto-Import page.
Within the Users configuration, map the Parent role in Schoology to the corresponding role from Infinite Campus. The value for parent users is "guardian" when provisioning from Infinite Campus via the SGY Data Exchange app.
Click Save at the bottom of the Auto-Import page.
Step 2 — Configure Path to File for parent-student relationships
Within the Parents configuration, enter the path to the parent file next to Path to File. The path to file is usually "upload/Parent_Associations.csv" when provisioning from Infinite Campus via the SGY Data Exchange app, but this will depend on the directory configured in SGY Data Exchange. The file name if using Infinite Campus is "Parent_Associations.csv"
Click Continue at the bottom of the Auto-Import page.
Step 3 — Match columns for the new file
After clicking Continue, you are directed on the Match Columns page.
- Scroll down to the Parents section.
- Click the drop-down menus under "Match Columns - Parents"
- Select the appropriate columns: child ID to child ID, and parent ID to parent ID.
- Save your changes.
You're done! Let the files run with your existing import process and check to see parent imports coming through the Status Log after the process has completed.
