School Data Sync has now moved to general availability. Currently this allows users to get data into Microsoft Classroom but does have limitations and can create a considerable overhead when providing the import data.
I’ve produced a quick video below looking at School Data Sync and what is means for UK schools. Hope you find it useful.
UPDATE – 31/03/2017
There has recently been some third party free tools released to automate the creation of these spreadsheets. This is another step in the right direction and hopefully there will be some free tools in the next few months to sync data directly into SDS.
The SDS data can also be used for the new Intune for Education released in April 2017.
