We’ve just released an awesome new feature in the Students module. Now, student pictures can be uploaded through DropBox. It’s a very nifty system – let’s take a look at how it works!
The Imports page integrates with your DropBox account to access student pictures quickly and easily. DropBox is a cloud-based data storage system that’s known for ease and simplicity of use. We thought it would be a perfect fit! It’s also free to sign up for DropBox, so feel free to head to their page to start an account, if you don’t have one already.
After uploading your students’ pictures to your dropbox account, they can be easily imported via the Students module and the Imports page.
When you’ve selected your photos, QuickSchools will automatically map the photos to the student records. Of course, if anything looks strange, you can also set the photos manually.
Importing student pictures makes it much easier to identify students from within the Students module. And, you can use the student profile reports to print out a list of students with their pictures, which is great for situations like when substitute teachers need to take attendance.
Of course, if you have any questions or need any help with this or anything else, feel free to chat in. We’d love to help any time!
