INTRODUCTION

Dyknow’s Import Manager feature enables Dyknow Administrators to easily import data from Blackbaud ON into Dyknow.

Note: In order to import Blackbaud user data into Dyknow, each Teacher user must be assigned to a Class in Blackbaud and each Student user must be assigned to a Class roster in Blackbaud. Blackbaud users aren’t tied to schools.

Prerequisite: Manage Roster Import Settings
