DATA IMPORT VALIDATION
Import Manager allows DyKnow Administrators to set data change thresholds for imports (manual or integrated) to prevent data issues that cause teachers not to be able to monitor students. If an import will cause the existing data in DyKnow to change at/beyond the threshold, a message will be sent to the DyKnow Administrator requesting that they review and approve/cancel the import. To learn more about import data validation, read the Validate Paused SIS Imports article.
