Data integration saves time by automating the process of uploading constituent (students, parents, faculty/staff, alumni) and academic (classes, rosters) data into Finalsite from your Student Information System (SIS). This automated data integration takes the place of manual data sheet uploads. Your data flows one-way, from your SIS into Finalsite. The ‘integrated’ data is used for mailing lists, online directories, class pages (academic Group Spaces) and rosters, alumni Group Spaces, and so on; therefore, its integrity is important.
The integration is not real-time, but is run as a scheduled task, updating any data in Finalsite that has recently changed in your SIS. Depending on how the export from your SIS and upload to Finalsite are configured, data updates may be synced to Finalsite in as little as one hour.
Schools looking for two-way integration can leverage Finalsite's API, which has a broad set of end points for moving data into and out of the Finalsite database.
