Syncing transfer students to your class in Haiku
Many of you have linked your Haiku Pages into one site, which makes things so much easier to manage. However, any new student added into your section after you have linked them are not included in the roster. Below are the steps to run when you have a student that joined your class after the linked Haiku Page was created.
First make sure the Roster Section is linked and not copied. Go to Manage Class > Roster, find the Section, and make sure there's a Link icon next to the Section name. If so, please complete the next step to sync with the source roster. Again, this is for classes that have been linked to make one site and does not impact standalone (unlinked) Haiku Pages.
Go to Manage Class > Roster > Sync with Source and select the section you want to sync.
