Start of Year (SOY)


Here are some quick tips making sure your identiMetrics Finger Scanning ID System working smoothly at the beginning of the year.

Check End-of Year (EOY) Management

  • Verify EOY has been run by making sure students are in the correct grade (check against your SIS).  EOY should have been run at the END of your school year.

  • Schedule an appointment for assistance ASAP if you have not yet run EOY and you are running an automated import.


Data Management

Cleaning and maintaining the database is important. As you begin to learn about staff and student changes, make sure to delete staff and students who are not returning from the following areas.  

  1. The main database containing all of the enrollment records.

  2. The User Profile section in the Enrollment Manager. This is where you add users who can maintain the database, enroll records and run reports.

  3. Verify that staff and students are in the correct grades, departments and correct school locations. 

  4. Verify new student and staff records have been imported successfully so you are ready for enrollment day. 

Note: This is also a great time to add new user profiles for new staff who will be part of the enrollment team at the beginning of the new school year. Here's how to add user profiles.

Test Scan Locations: (Turn on & Test) 

  • Turn on all of your identiMetrics computers a few days before school starts. This includes all of your Enrollment Stations and Admin Stations. 

  • Scan a few fingers. Make sure there is successful communication between identiMetrics and your receiving application. 

  • We also recommend you gently clean your scanners with a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol to get them ready for the new school year.
