Reactivate a student account

userXello Admin Xello productAccounts Time2 minutes

If a student’s account has been set to inactive, you can reactivate it from their student profile in Xello. Reactivating students means they’ll show up on reports and in student lists.

The process of managing student accounts in Xello depends on if your site has nightly data transfers or is on a less frequent data transfer schedule.

Nightly data transfers

If your site does nightly data transfers then student accounts are managed through your school's Student Information System (SIS). Ensure the student is at the correct site in your SIS and changes will be reflected in Xello the next day.

Scheduled data transfers

If your site is on scheduled data transfers and you need to make changes to student accounts between transfers:
