    As most districts are taking the CSV export of the student tokens, it would be VERY helpful if we (Abre) also included the address in the extract. Right now districts are having to do vlookups to get the fields to work in a mailmerge field.

    @zvanderveenabre-io,

    I’m trying to think about how this could be done from a technical perspective. When a parent signs into Abre and links a token we know they are connected to a student/students but do not have the “Parents” address. We could merge a students address connected to the parent, however there could potentially be many student addresses tied to one parent.

      @croseabre-io I was thinking more in terms in pulling the data from the SIS. Although I get that this would probably be a hot mess – and someone is still going to have to clean up the fields.

      Something to think about.

        Right…and each student could have multiple as well as each parent which makes it difficult in spreadsheet form.
