Syncing your data from Facility
Once the Facility integration has been set up, you can preform a sync from Facility to the Parents Evening System at any time. We would normally recommend you preform a sync when setting up a new evening or event to ensure all your data is up to date.
You can also run a sync while you have an evening up an running and you would like to update the data on the Parents Evening System. Please be aware that if a teacher or student is removed from Facility, the sync will remove the teacher or student and their associated appointments.
To preform a sync with Facility, please follow the steps below:
- From the Administrator Homepage of the Parents Evening System select Data Sync > Run Sync Now.
- Once the sync has fully run you should see a message screen showing that the last sync was successful and the date and time of this.
- Should the sync fail for any reason please try this again and if you still experience issues, please contact us and we can check the reason for you from our end.
