Can my school's MIS system automatically create my Purple Mash logins for me?
Purple Mash can directly sync to your school's database, usually referred to as a Management Information System. (such as SIMS for example) 2Simple work with two companies that are fully GDPR compliant. They are Groupcall and Wonde. This service is available to all Purple Mash school admins at no extra cost, and is the quickest and simplest way to set up your logins and keep them up-to-date.
Groupcall Xporter and Wonde are completely free-to-use portals for all schools to log into and securely share school data with Purple Mash.
After authorising the data share to Purple Mash using Groupcall Xporter or Wonde, you can then use the MIS Sync Wizard as shown below in the Manage Users area.
Once you have installed the Xporter or Wonde and authorised the data share, it is ready to request as many times as you wish. So when ever you have pupils join or leave the school, simply run the MIS sync wizard.
This means that admins will no longer have to import spreadsheets to update class information for staff and pupils every academic year.
The only step to get this process started would be to register to Groupcall Xporter or Wonde for free, and if you are an existing Purple Mash customer, our friendly support team will be happy to send you a registration invite link and then assist you on the data-sync.
To contact our support team, you can email your school details directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with the nature of your request.
