Infinite Campus Alerts and Document Viewer Integration




Support > Online Guides > Technical Guide > Infinite Campus Alerts and Document Viewer Integration

The document viewer integration allows Infinite Campus users to seamlessly view student plans and documents in SameGoal while logged into Infinite Campus. This integration uses the Infinite Campus Outline Links feature, in which districts add SameGoal links as additional tools to the user outline. Once additional Outline Links have been created, user rights are given for each link to user groups who need access. Authentication between Infinite Campus and SameGoal is configured using the Infinite Campus Custom Auth Utility.

This integration can be configured to allow Infinite Campus users to view any type of plan or document in SameGoal. Two popular configurations include those for special education and 504.

When an Outline Link described above is clicked in Infinite Campus, it brings up the most recent, completed document of the given form in SameGoal. If there is no completed document for the given form, a message will be shown that the student has no document. Since Outline Links cannot be conditionally set in Infinite Campus based on whether or not the student has a completed document, we recommend Infinite Campus users look to the existence of IEP, 504 or other plan flags on each student as a proxy for when to check for documentation.
