FAQs link

Why does the integration use a summary PDF and the document viewer application rather than upload student document PDFs directly?

Why does the integration upload the summary PDF to a single "SameGoal" category, rather than uploading each PDF to it's corresponding category (eg the IEP PDF to category IEP, the 504 PDF to category 504, and so on)?

Can I email the summary PDF as an attachment?

What can I do to streamline accessing student documents through the summary PDF and document viewer?
