    e1 accessing historical attendance data for migration to new MIS

    Hi Guys

    We're working with a number of schools to migrate from e1 to Bromcom and struggling to get two bits of data from e1.

    1. Pupil attendance data going back more than 1 year. Pearson have given us access to PI where we we access historical pupil attendance data for the last 12 months, this can be exported and imported to Bromcom. Any data over 12 months is not available using this option.

    2. Staff absences. There is no field in the front end of e1 to export staff absence data.

    Has anyone else had these issues? Any thoughts on how to get around it or should I just apply more pressure to Pearson to supply us with this data?

    Thanks

    Nic

    Are you, or the school not allowed access to the backend system?

    Neither, Pearson won't give access to the backend as it's hosted and the hosting is shared with all of the other schools.

    Pants!
    Aren't they obligated to provide the data to the school? Put more pressure on. If they are still a paying customer until date x - end of contract...
    Also, as a goodwill gesture for leaving the market.
    Bad form really. I can imagine other areas of Pearson sales suffering because of the way they let schools down on this front.

    I think you will find that e1 is not alone in only offering CTF, CSV output from their "cloud" solutions.

    This is quite shocking to be honest, but when you consider they are trying to push everyone over to RM there is an interest to make it 'not easy'!

    Does Aspen have APIs that allow TPs to access data in their cloud?

    Yes. The API built for their mobile platform also serves as third party API.

    @nteeman If your schools are in Hackney, have you considered asking the Learning Trust legal to write you a strongly worded letter?

    The boss being?

    Aspen has an API available that is a fact. That API is available for third parties to tap into.

    I'm not really sure how there is confusion. Perhaps PM me with details.

    I'm not really sure why I'm defending them I not longer work for them. It is a mute issue anyway seeing as it is no longer available in the UK.

    I'm reporting the facts objectively I have no need to defend, so unless there has been a recent strategic change there, as in the last 3 months, this is still the case

    @nteeman Have you thought about contacting their help desk if they have one or the mangers?

    @nteeman - how are you getting on?
    Any more joy. I've heard from some other people lately who are struggling to get access to data from hosted E1 too.
    Surely there is some onus on them to help provide it, plus a legal bearing based on DPA or some such...?
