This tool is located on the tools tab within the administration module. Administrators should invoke it at the root node of their tree - district administrators at the top node and school administrators at their own schools.

It allows the administrator to configure a data exchange with the school's student administration system (SAS), primarily to import users, groups and rooms in to Fronter.

The specific SAS in use is selected from a drop-down menu specific to the region the building is in. In addition to the default configuration for any SAS, the administrator has the option to choose between detailed settings such as whether address lines, phone numbers and so forth should be imported.

The tool gives the administrators an URL which can be used to upload data or check the status of an integration. It also schedules the integration to run nightly on work days.
