Custom data can be entered into Schoolrunner in the form of "student attributes". Then, you can then make dynamic groups using these attributes.
Start by creating an attribute you want to see for students. "Bus Stop" is a good example.
Choose "Raw" from the "Value Type" dropdown. "Raw" tells our system to display whatever value you set for students – so if you upload an attributes file with "Main & 3rd Ave", Schoolrunner will simply display "Main & 3rd Ave".
Since you want to use this attribute to create groups, make sure to enter in a number in the "Groups Page Order" field. The number you put in will be ranked relative to to other attributes, all of which will be shown toward the bottom of the filters on the "Enrollment & Demographic Filters" on the Groups page.
Enter "0" in the "Default Value" field. This will create a "None" option when filtering students by the attribute, allowing you to view all kids that don't have anything listed!
Once you've created your attribute, populate it with student information.
If you chose "Raw" when you created this attribute, we will display whatever you enter. That means typos will show up just the same as correct information, so be careful!
Once you've filled in your new attribute with information for specific students, look for the attribute menu within the "Enrollments & Demographics" section of the Groups page. Open it up to see each different piece of info that applies to your students, and click to filter students.
