What is the Excel Add-In for?
The Excel Add-In can be downloaded and installed to help you prepare your Staff and Class Context Data files to be imported / uploaded into Observe in the correct format.
This is an optional extra and alternatively you can prepare your files manually, you would just need to ensure your data is in the correct format as shown in the file upload examples in Sisra Observe, and saved as CSV (MS DOS) format.
At the time of writing, the Sisra Observe Excel Add-In is compatible with:
- Windows only, full versions 8 and above
- Office only, full versions of Office 2013, 2016, 2019, 2021 and 365.
However, this can also depend on the complexity and set up of your network settings and your individual user permissions at school.
