Regroup Integration:

 

  1. Admin can enable the Powerschool Integration for the network by enabling the "enable_powerschool" attribute in the networks table.
  2. On network settings page, user can add the Powerschool Credentials (Host Url, Client ID and Client Secret) by following the instruction given on the page.
  3. System imports the data from the powerschool and save it to the regroup database( campuses, groups, users ) as regular regroup entities
  4. User can view the imported data (campuses, groups, users) on regroup web under the related sections.
  5. From post page, user can post the messages to the groups.
  6. Users can access regroup normally.
  7. We support attendance alerts.
  8. We fetch the contacts from the Organization.
  9. Report cards can't be done at the time.  

 

We have changed the Data Import Process from Powerschool. Now instead of adding cron tab for "Import Data" user can import the data as they want to.

On network settings page, after adding the Powerschool credentials, user can import the data from powerschool by clicking the link available on the settings page.

 

Location Campus Set Up (attendance data)

1 - "Import Users and Staff from PowerSchool" link is avaiable on Network Settings page.
2 - After Import process complete (it make take a few minutes) Campuses should be available for the network.
3 - For each Campus, user can set the "Attendace Time", on with Regroup will fetch their attendance data and will send the late notifications to the students.
4 - I have added a Script to execute the Attendance Process.

Cron Tab for the attendance process: you can change if every minute it will check the campuses attendance time and will execute the Attendacne Process for the campus.
