Qwickly Attendance Pro allows administrators to import courses each semester from their LMS. Qwickly imports the courses from the LMS using REST APIs to get all courses that are available and have a specified value in the Course ID/Course code.
To access this, admins can go to their instance's Qwickly Attendance Pro page and navigate to "Tools" > "Import Courses".
This will take the users to the Course Import form. All new courses will need to be assigned a semester.
The user will then be prompted for a filter to load a specific set of courses. (The provided screenshot uses an example of "qwi")
Once submitted, the page will display courses imported from the LMS which are available, have the selected filter value in their course ID/course code, and have not configured Attendance.
Courses can be individually unselected before pressing "Import" to create the courses.
Once submitted, the courses will begin importing. A large number of courses may take some time to finish creating so the admin can check back to Attendance Pro later to view all courses that have been created.
How to know that the courses have been successfully Imported
- By going to Course Reporting > All Courses > Session Information report. This displays all of the courses for the selected semester
- You can view your courses by going to Manage > Courses and lookup your courses based on the string you used to import your courses
- There may have been errors during the import process, you can check if any errors occured by checking your instance logs.
