Student imports can be configured to ensure data quality as new student records are added over time. In addition to the standard fields for each student that is imported, you can specify up to 25 additional custom fields.
Setting Up Fields
1. Navigate to " Department Name" > Data Management.
2. Enter in your custom fields in the Fields / Header Row text box. You can copy/paste them from a spreadsheet or type them in, separated by commas. Up to 25 custom fields can be included.
*Note: If you have previously imported custom data into Cadence, be sure to include all of the previous custom fields.
3. Specify Required and Visible to Staff settings. Click [Continue] to complete the process.
3A ( Note: Only applicable if you have previously imported data into Mongoose): Your existing data will begin a migration process. During this time, you will not be able to import student records. The process will take no more than 15 minutes, and you will receive an email when it is complete.
4. After initial setup, additional custom fields can be added, renamed, and configured by navigating to " Department Name" > Data Management > Fields.
