How do I update my student names in Fund Manager?
Issue: I don’t or can’t use *MISapp, how can I update my Student names within Fund Manager.
Solution: Create a file of Student names to send to Pebble to be uploaded to Fund Manager.
Although the information given here is directed at Sims.net users, this file can be generated from any Student Management programme by using the Fields as defined below:
- Click Reports
- Click Design
- Click Create a New Report
- Click Student
- Click Next
- Click On Roll
- Click Next
At this point you will identify the fields required for the .csv file.
From the list on your right, select the first 3 fields. Highlight and Double Click on:
Now Double-click Registration and select the next 3 fields from the expanded list:
- Year Group
- Registration Group
- Next – if no filter is to be applied.
- Next – if no sort order is required.
- Next – if no effective date is required.
To create this as a .csv file you must select TEXT from the types of file offered. You will then see a box with comma separated highlighted and an empty field box in which you will enter the file name. Use the filename (Students.csv) and save this to your Desktop.

Once this export has run and the file saved, please encrypt it, then attach it to an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org where a team member will review the file for you before you import your names.
