CTF export and import covered from 2.50

You can use a CTF file to:

• Create new students, or

• Update students already in the MIS.

You will need a valid CTF file to complete this process.

Start from the Student List page.

Select Actions and CTF Import

Select the CTF from your folders:

Choose which information you want to Import, including the date they are starting in school, and click the Next button.

You then have three options:

Create New – this will create a new Student with a new Admission Number.

Match Existing – this will match to a Student on the MIS. You can select the Student from the dropdown list. If the MIS recognises matching Student information, it will match the Students automatically.

Dont Import – this does not create a new Student.

Important: if you want to match to existing students, you will be asked to choose whether to Complete Missing Data or Overwrite Existing Data. Overwriting will replace the data that is present for that Student in the system so should be approached carefully.

When finished, click the Import button.
