Due to growing demand from our community, we have created a new functionality that will facilitate the integration between MySchool and other widely used Ed Tech applications. Although we have been able to integrate with SDS and Google suites for some time, we listened to feedback and create a synchronisation tool which is user-friendly.
What is an 'integration'?
In basic terms, it means that your MySchool data can either be pushed or pulled from another online source. The data we can integrate or synchronise will be different per application. In some cases, we cannot push or pull a certain field as it doesn't have an equivalent source or destination.
Which software is available in the sync centre?
We offer synchronisation services with;
We are working on further integrations for the finance module;
What do we have to do to set this up?
Sync centre is a new package. Just contact your CSM to update your contract. Once we have everything in place we can activate the page for super users. Read through the set-up articles, and make sure you have access to the third-party software and its API credentials. Configure your sync and test it before going live. Each night at 00h00 local time, the system will look to sync. If you need to test before that time, you can manually process this in the appropriate sync configuration.
Google classrooms and assignments
Google Classroom is a push feature from MySchool to Google courses and rosters. Assignments are a pull feature where we pull information to MySchool.
When selecting Google, you will need to access the console panel of Google console. please contact your local IT resource for help if you do not have access. For the full breakdown then please follow this article.
Manage bac integration is slightly different, you will need to find the API key and add it to the configuration panel. After you will need to map the different entities from each system. For Manage Bac we offer to pull information from their platform to MySchool.
With open apply, then you will need to find the Endpoint, client ID, and client secret key. Note that with open apply the sync needs to be applied to a specific academic year. We pull information from Open apply for student and guardian details only.
Integration with Xero is all controlled via their console. Please consult their internal support document to set. Choose the school and the financial organisation to sync with. For certain functionalities we can push, pull or do both. A
Financial package integration
