Back to school is here again! Before you update your Dyknow account’s roster data, please review the questions below:

  1. Are you using a new Student Information System (SIS)?
  2. Did you update your firewall or content filter?
  3. Do you have a new Dyknow Administrator?

If you answered YES to any question above, please click here to schedule a call with a Dyknow School Success Manager. Otherwise, please continue to Step 1.

  • Unsure of your Dyknow roster import format; and/or
  • Interested in converting your current Import Method.

 

STEP 2: INSTALL UPDATED DYKNOW CLOUD CONNECTOR
