Assembly's managed onboarding service is the easiest way of connecting schools to your app. The below steps explain how we contact and onboard schools to the Platform, and get them connected to your app.
We suggest you put one school live prior to a full implementation. We help check everything is working ok - and we don't charge for the first school!
Step 1: Decide whether you're onboarding all your existing schools at once, or if you're beginning with a selection.
Step 2: Contact the schools you'd like to onboard. We can provide a template for this email.
Example template email:
We have teamed up with Assembly Education, who will manage a connection from your school MIS to our app. The direct connection to the MIS means enhanced security and no manual uploads of CSV files. We believe that the connection to Assembly will greatly reduce the manual overheads of uploading your data while keeping it secure.
Someone from Assembly will be in touch with instructions on how to install the software on your MIS server. These steps will need to be carried out by someone from your IT team - you can reach Assembly on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Please let us know if you would rather configure the setup manually.
Step 3: Send us the list of schools who want to use an Assembly connection.
Step 4: We'll email schools to follow up, and chase politely if we don't hear from them. We'll also report to you periodically with updates on how many are signed up.
Step 5: If you began with a limited selection of schools, repeat steps 2-4 for the rest!
