Step 4 – Map Your Schools (PowerSchool)

After your school list is synced, we need to map those schools to your active Visitor Managment schools.

On the Registration page, under Actions, click School Mapping.

On the school mapping page, you will see all of your schools listed with an Edit button next to each. Clicking Edit allows you to select the school to map and to set sync settings for each school.
