SIS Bridge is not listed

You can still use Discovery apps with SIS Liberty even if we do not have a bridge developed for your SIS.

SIS Liberty is very flexible in the way it can import data, typically users create custom extracts that contain the information they would like to have on the handheld. The files can be either comma or tab separated text files (Please let us know which format you choose).

You also have the ability to create custom fields so if there is information you would like but is not listed below, please include them.

If you can export these file(s), please send us a sample including the column names and at least one row of student data in each file. Once we evaluate the data we will manually create a configuration file (PDE) that will enable you to import your information. The PDE defines the column names and is used by Discovery apps to determine which information to import and how it is displayed.

Typically, you can save the extracts definitions so that whenever you want to update your school information you just have to load and run the saved report.
