A successful school year starts with a successful rostering experience. This workflow is designed to help District Administrators, IT Administrators, Principals, or those who are familiar with rostering decisions and methods make the right rostering decision for their school or district.
Choosing the best method for your school or district
Imagine Learning offers three ways to roster: Self-Managed, One-Time Assisted, and Automated. Review the table to determine which method works best for your school or district.

How rostering works
Once you have chosen a method, you can expect the following:
|Initial rostering||We provide in-product tools that guide you through how to roster users and classes manually, without assistance from Imagine Learning.
Imagine Robotify offers the additional option of importing rosters from Google Classroom.
|We provide import templates and instructions for uploading your data. Once received, our Technical Services team validates the data and then imports the users and classes in bulk. We then verify with you that the accounts were successfully created.||
Use your Student Information System (SIS) to manage users.
|Subsequent updates to rosters||You use in-product tools to update rosters.||After the initial import, use in-product tools to manually update rosters without assistance from Imagine Learning.||Changes are reflected in automated, regularly scheduled imports, or syncs.|
|How users log in||Users log in manually.||
Users log in manually.
|Users log in via Single Sign-On (SSO) if the district has it. Otherwise, users log in manually.|
