Q: What are these reports used for?

These files allow us to write back the specific time in and out data. Unfortunately this cannot be done in real-time so we must set the reports to run every hour.

  1. On the Powerschool Start Page click System Reports under the Reports area in the left navigation pane. IMPORTANT NOTE - You must be under your District Office location in Powerschool in order to install these files for all schools in your district. The can be installed at the school level but will only run for that school. You can verify the school you are currently working with by looking in the upper right corner of your Powerschool module.
