Mass Student Update Tool

For clients who utilize our DnA product, we recommend that you upload one field of student data by going through the Mass Student Update tool. Please note that the file you are importing should only include two columns: Student ID and Column of Data you are wanting to update. The file should be saved as a tab delimited .txt file.  Titles will vary depending on the specific student data you are updating.
