We are delighted to announce that LINC-ED is now interoperable with the N4L’s SMS Extender! This means that schools using LINC-ED can now sign up to the N4L single sign on solution and trust that student and staff data will be securely updated from LINC-ED to N4L.
How do we use the new SMS Extender in LINC-ED?
The SMS extender settings can be found under the Admin—> Integrations section of your site. The integrations page will include the N4L logo and heading with two options:
1. Sync now - this will allow you to re-sync your school data with the N4L SMS Extender.
2. Turn on Auto-Sync - this option will enable a daily sync of all your data with the N4L SMS Extender.
SMSExtender capability is available from version 2.9.5 of LINC-ED once your school has signed the agreement with N4L
