Before submitting start year data to ADVISER in Nebraska, it is important to update Ed-Fi settings in jmc Office. By configuring Ed-Fi settings, enabling interchanges, and making necessary selections, schools can seamlessly share student and school information for state reporting. Follow the steps in jmc Office's "Ed-Fi Settings" to establish the connection with ADVISER, receive error notifications, enable special education data posting, schedule automated updates, and submit attendance to the state.
To configure your Ed-Fi settings, log in to jmc Office and go to File > Administrator Options.
Step One: Click the "Ed-Fi Settings" link in the "Ed-Fi Settings" box to edit the settings that enable your connection to ADVISER.
Step Two: Place a checkmark in the "Enable Ed-Fi Interchanges" checkbox to allow jmc to send and receive information through ADVISER.
Step Three: Enter your email address in the "Ed-Fi Nightly Attendance Error Notification Email Address" field to receive an email explaining errors detected during your nightly sync.
