Data Integration with Skyward

Data integration allows Xello to securely exchange data with Student Information Systems to create student accounts in the program. Data integration also takes care of tasks like deactivating, transferring, promoting, and updating student accounts, as long as the information in the SIS is kept up to date.

Course Request Export

Skyward exchanges data with Xello through a scripted integration. You’ll need to export four files from Skyward to complete the integration: School, Course Master, Student, and Student Courses. To find these files:

  1. Log in to Skyward.
  2. Navigate to Student Management > Administration > SkyBuild > Exports and follow these Export File Builder instructions to export the above files. (Don’t forget to include Historical AND CurrentCourses in the StudentCourses file.)
  3. Once the files have been exported, contact your Onboarding Manager to complete the setup.

Course Request Import

To import course requests:

  1. Log in to Skyward.
  2. Navigate to Student Management > Administration > SkyBuild > Imports and follow these instructions to import student course selections from Xello into Skyward as course requests.
  3. Once the file has been imported, you will receive a report with the results of your import.
