CL Connect provides the ability to configure automatic data file uploads to any CampusLogic products on Platform. This article will outline the configuration process for this in relation to ScholarshipUniverse (SU).
This process works off of sub-folders which have names that match the corresponding system you're wanting to upload files for. The name of the parent folder is irrelevant but the sub-folder names must match the following:
|Type of Data||Sub-folder Name|
|Internal scholarship data||scholarship|
|Historical scholarship award data||scholarship award|
|Student Information Systems data||sis|
|Verified student data||verified students|
Explanation of the "Type of Data" column:
- Internal scholarship data - For data files being used to update the internal scholarship information in SU.
- Historical scholarship award data - For data files containing information about scholarships awarded to students in the past.
- Student Information Systems data - For data files containing student information from your SIS as it relates to scholarships.
- Verified student data - For data files containing the students you want to have access to the SU application.
Example file structure - "DataFile Upload" being the parent:
*Upload File Path: The file path of the parent folder where the system sub-folders are located. Clicking “Select Folder” will allow you navigate through your C:\ drive to select a folder, but you can also manually enter the path to the specified folder in the given textbox. You must allow permissions on the specified folder in order for the process to work. Clicking the “test” button will allow you to ensure that CLConnect has the appropriate read/write permissions on the path provided. The path specified must be different than the specified path for ISIR Upload / ISIR Corrections if using those features.
*Archive File Path: Similar to the Upload File Path, the archive file path will allow you to specify the folder where you would like the files to be placed after processing. Only one folder for this process needs to be created. CL Connect will automatically create sub-folders. Permissions must also be granted to this folder.
*Upload Frequency Type: The frequency at which the files should be processed. Default value is "Daily".
Weekly: Once a week at 12AM UTC time
Daily: once a day at 12AM UTC time
Minutely: every minute
Hourly: every hour at the top of the hour

*Days To Run: Indicates the days of the week that the upload process will run. At least one day must be selected.
