Why should you do this?
You can save time by automatically linking up all your school's pupils automatically using an MIS. After that, any changes in your MIS (e.g. new pupils or pupils that leave the school) will be automatically updated on Pobble.
What should I do first?
We need to associate pupils on Pobble with the ones in your MIS. For the most part this will be fully automatic but in some cases, you or one of your teaching colleagues will need to confirm before we complete the operation to ensure no information will be unintentionally lost.
If you have pupils set up in Pobble manually, we advise to make sure that your lists of pupils in Pobble and your MIS are as similar as possible. For example, before you connect, retire pupils that have left the school and any duplicate pupils.
How can I do this?
Step 1. As an administrator for your school, click on your account icon in the header and select 'School dashboard'. On the 'Data' tab, click the 'Connect' button
Step 2. You will need to authorise the connection. In order to facilitate this, our partner Wonde will contact you. To speed things up, you can also book a call with them. Once Pobble has access to your MIS, the data will be imported.
Step 3. Any pupils that were on Pobble but are no longer present in the MIS data will be retired after your confirmation. When the process is complete you can access your Pupil list to confirm everything has come across correctly.
Data from your MIS can only be changed directly in the MIS, not on Pobble. After making any changes you to your MIS, click 'Refresh' and these changes will be synced over to Pobble.
By default parent data is NOT imported. Once you are happy all the pupil data has synced correctly, tick the "import parents..." box as below and save changes. On the next download we'll import the parent data and send emails to them all for parental permission.
