The previous chapters explained how to submit combined confirmations manually on the HE Gateway. This works well for individual students and smaller groups. If you have a large number of students, you may want to submit the confirmations in bulk instead.
To do this, you should first export the combined worklist file from the HE Gateway. You can then add your confirmations and import the file back into SIS to update all student records at once.
Go to the Combined Worklist page and run a search to find the students you want to submit confirmations for.
Once you have your search results, select Filter and Export Results. This will open the Student Information Export page.
Select the Combined Confirmation Report radio button. The filename will default to Combined Confirmation Report. You can overtype this with a more relevant filename if you like.
Select Export Results to export the file. The file will export in .out format. Alternatively, select Cancel to cancel the export and return to the combined worklist.
The exported file will only include the details of students who came up in your search and who need confirmation.
The Combined Confirmation Report file format is the same as the Registration Confirmation Export file (and the same as the historic SSAR file). You can find a detailed breakdown of the file format in the Attendance and Student Information Import and Export Files Technical Specification.
