How To Export Data From SIMS to Blutick
For customers with Blutick Professional, we can import your data from a range of MIS platforms, including SIMS. In this article we explain how to export the data from SIMS to send to us.
Blutick only need class names, student/teacher names, and email addresses. Any other data sent to us will be stripped out and deleted. The precise format of your data is not important – as long as it contains the information we need we can process it.
