Before you can use the ‘Prepare Data’ options, you need to add your school’s unique Add-In code, which enables the Add-In to link to your Staff Filter Profile/Class Context Profile in Observe (depending on your network settings), if you have access to an Internet connection.
To do this, click SISRA Observe > Manage Profiles > ‘Add Profile’.
If you're unable to see the 'Sisra Observe' tab in Excel, we recommend taking a look at the following article for troubleshooting tips - Troubleshooting the Excel Add-In.
You will need to add your school's unique Add-In code, which enables the Add-In to link to your Staff Filter Profile/Class Context Profile in Observe.
You can find your Add-In code on both the Staff Import, and Class Import pages in Observe. Navigate to Admin > Data > Staff > Staff Import (or alternatively Admin > Data > Classes > Class Import), then your unique 9 digit code can be found above the Choose File button.
Copy the code, and then back in Excel, paste or type your code and click ‘Next’.
Double check your school name appears and click ‘Finish’. Your school will now be shown as the ‘Default Profile’.
Note: If you receive a connection error when adding your school profile similar to:
“The Excel Add In could not connect to Sisra Observe, please contact your system administrator to ensure you can connect to the internet. If this error continues please switch to Offline mode.”
It may be that you’re not connected to the Internet, or network settings are restricting access. We recommend asking your local IT department to read through the following article - Troubleshooting the Excel Add-In.
You can also add additional school profiles and change which profile is default, which is useful if you’re the Data Manager for multiple schools and want to prepare data for a different school. As well as the option to delete a selected profile if no longer required.
When you click ‘Close’, you will then have access to the ‘Prepare’ options. For more information on preparing your data, please see the following articles - Preparing Staff Data or Preparing Class Context Data.
