Official Comment Download
The Official Comment Download screen lets you manually download Official Comments recorded by teachers in classes that were created via the District Integration processes.
You can access the Official Comment Download screen by clicking the Integration link, the Download link, and then Comments link. Once you click the Integration link and you have enabled District Integration, you will see several integration related links below the Integration link. When you click the "Download" link, you will see three links below the Download link and the Grades link is selected. Click the "Comment" link to access the Official Comments download screen.
In addition to manually downloading comments, you can automate your downloads.
Each Official Comment is recorded with the start date and end date of a specific class grading period. For classes that do not use grading periods, Official Comments are recorded with the start date and end date of the class itself. Files that are generated by the Official Comments Download screen include all comments that match the entries in both the Start Date and End Date fields.
You may enter the desired Start Date and End Date manually, or select a grading period from the Grading Period selection list to automatically enter its start date and end date in the corresponding fields. Note that the Grading Period selection list will only appear if your group has one or more defined Grading Periods.
After entering a Start Date and End Date, or selecting a Grading Period, click "save" to generate the download file.
If your group would like a different file format, please send us an email or call
No phone support Monday - Friday 7 AM - 5 PM Pacific Time.
