Things to Pay Attention To - 

  1. You still need to check the EIS transmission errors on EIS to make sure your files transmit each day and to see if there are any types of errors in them.
  2. In the View EIS Extract Files link in PowerSchool, check there to make sure that files have been created for that day.
  3. On the initial run of extracts after automated extracts are initiated, the system zips up all files in that folder and sends them, even going back to earlier in the year. Be sure to move all of previous’ days files out of that folder before you turn automated transmission on. If hosted, contact the hosting support and request manual files be removed before automating extracts.
  4. Confirm that your 2021(Current year) extract flag is set.
