FAME Skills Import Process
Watch this short video to see how to import student Skills into Freedom.
This section walks you through Freedom's import process that will post the skills or tallies (operations, theory) under the student Academics section.
Important: Make sure you have completed the one-time mapping of the Academic Skills Import Process within Freedom as outlined in the previous section before you import any files. If the mapping is not set up completely, you will receive an error saying "code mismatch" and the upload will fail.
Skill Import Process
Step 1: Export the Skills report as outlined in the previous section titled: How to Export Student Skills Tracker Report.
Important: Make sure you have saved the CSV files to a location on your desktop or server that Freedom can access. You should have access to an V:/AcademicsImport folder. If you do not have access, please review the following article: Adding AcademicsImport folder for uploads:
When saving the file after exporting, please name with a unique name so you know which date the file is for.
Important: Make sure you don't import the file more than once as this will cause duplicate counts within Freedom. It is important that you keep track of the report range you ran last so that you don't overlap your report. For example, if you last ran your report for 7/30/21, your next date range for the report will be for 7/31/21.
Step 2: Click on Tools in the Freedom System Navigator and double click on Import Academics.
Step 3: Select the Open File folder icon.
Step 4: Locate and select the CSV file that you wish to import into Freedom. This should be in the S:/AcademicsImport folder. Then click Open.
Step 5: Select the "Check to import a single file" box if the system allows you to check it. If not, then leave unchecked.
Step 6: Click the green Import icon. When the process is complete, you will see a message saying Process Complete.
Step 7: Repeat steps 3 - 6 for any additional CSV skills files you need to import.
Step 8: You can review the skills import by by double clicking on Student Summary under the System Navigator in Freedom. Search for the student by their ID to pull up their records and then select the Academics tab.
