The archiving of MIS generated rooms has now been started (unless you have requested otherwise) and will be completed by the 1st September, ready for you to activate your MIS for the next academic year. As part of our auto-archiving process, all rooms in Fronter will temporarily disappear. As soon the archiving process has been completed, the manual rooms will re-appear automatically.

For small authorities this will happen in a matter of minutes, but can take some time with larger authorities. Please do not manually un-archive any rooms during this period as they will be archived again automatically.

If you would like to check the status of your update, please feel free to contact the support desk who will be happy to provide you with an update.

We do apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.

01/07 - Please note the SOY MIS switch off was successful and from 01.07.14 no new data will be imported into Fronter from your MIS.

This means that data will not update within Fronter during this period giving you time to prepare your MIS systems for the new academic year without it affecting your Fronter building.

You will be able to re-activate the import as from 1st September

Schools wishing to have their MIS integration switched on earlier than the 1st September must contact the Fronter help desk to request this.

Thank you

Please note that this is a UK specific process. Please contact your local partner to clarify if you will be included in the process. The process is the same as last year but with revised dates listed below:

· MIS data imports into Fronter will be automatically deactivated on 1st July 2014.

· The MIS integration setup option in the admin section of Fronter will be temporarily removed to prevent Re-activation and will be re-added on the 1st September 2014.

NOTE: This means that data will not update within Fronter during this period giving you time to prepare your MIS systems for the new academic year without it affecting your Fronter building. Schools wishing to deactivate imports earlier than 1st July 2014 can do this manually themselves or contact the Fronter Helpdesk to request this.

IMPORTANT: Schools wishing to have their MIS integration switched on earlier than the 1st September 2014 must contact the Fronter help desk to request this.

IMPORTANT: On 26th August 2014 Fronter will perform some automated functions as follows: (the first two will not happen for schools that have request early re-activation as this will have already been completed)

· Fronter will auto archive all MIS (imported) rooms. This will also include any automatically generated rooms that are open from previous academic years.

· Fronter will delete all MIS (imported) rooms that have never been activated from previous academic years

· An update will be run to ensure that all schools regardless of their MIS system will receive a new set of MIS rooms for the new academic year

Once your MIS is ready for the next academic year, you will be able to re-activate the import as from 1st September 2014.
