Data Hub Tips
•
Use delete sparingly. You will not be prompted to delete
each record automatically.
•
Only include fields that you expect to use for each
account. Blank fields in CSV files will update to blank fields
in Moodle.
•
Review Data Hub logs regularly to verify automation
activity. Test uploaded files on sandbox site.
•
Data Hub Web Services now available for Moodle 2.4 and
up. Turned off by default.
