Q. When is the best time to switch to a new data integration setup?
A. Generally speaking, it's easiest to change your data integration setup between school years, but in some cases it's possible to switch between terms or semesters.
We strongly recommend against changing your integrations setup during the school year. Most of the time, this means changing Import IDs for your existing users and classes. That can be very time consuming and is especially difficult to do for classes that are currently in use. As a result, it's better to wait until you have some extra time and are free to create entirely new classes with entirely new Import IDs.
Note that if you're not currently importing Classes or Rosters and if your users have Google IDs (which make it easier to assign users new Import IDs) it may be possible to change to a new integration method during the school year.
In any case, if you're planning any changes to your data integration processes, please contact us via the Help Menu in your PowerSchool Learning account.
