How do I start sending Clever extension fields?
SFTP and SIS-Managed Auto Syncs: Simply add the field to the desired data set in your csv files and append ext. to the beginning of the field name! For example, fields such as “Program Code” or “Gifted Status” can now be added as ext.program_code or ext.gifted_status in your CSV files as column headers.
PowerSchool, Infinite Campus Auto Sync, Skyward Auto Sync, Illuminate Auto Sync, Aeries Auto Sync, SchoolInsight Auto Sync, iNow Auto Sync: Extension fields can be added as a custom field mapping! Please reach out to Clever Support and we can get this started for you.
How can I view extension field data in Clever?
Extension field data can be viewed in your Data Browser. You can search and view the data in the user/section profile underneath the “Extension Data” category on the profile view.
Can I use extension fields to create sharing rules?
Yes! Extension fields can be used to create unique sharing rules for an easier, more seamless sharing process with your connected applications.
Will my connected applications receive extension field data?
Selected applications will be able to receive extension fields in the coming months. If you would like to send applications your extension field data, please reach out to your account manager at the application to inquire about availability.
If the application accepts the extension field data, the extension fields need to be explicitly shared by clicking through the 'advanced settings' on the app page. Sharing all fields will not share extension fields by default.
