Data Admin/File Import Family Relationship

Respected Sandra,

I imported students and parents separately through data admin. Now I want to link them by their relationship. In data admin it requires family sinc key. When I looked into database it is null. Please guide me how I can create families and link students and parents in bulk.

Best Regards,
Ghulam Abbas

  • LO QUE YO HICE FUE CARGAR EN USUARIOS TANTO A LOS HIJOS COMO LOS TUTORES

    Hi Ghulam,

    The family sync is a separate value, unique to that family, that helps tell Gibbon which users to link together. This can be any unique value you create, or in the case of importing from another SIS system this could be the family ID used in that database. Looks like Beatriz is suggesting using the surnames of the student as a way to create a unique code for that family. Another way to do this, if your system has unique student IDs, is to use the student ID of the eldest child in that family as the family sync key.

    Hope this helps!
  • Dear Sandra,
    I am sorry for duplicate post . As per my understanding can Is this pre-requesite to first create families and then link or I can directly create families through manage relationships?

  • Lo hice por separado, lo que si hice fue crear un usuario para los tutores o padres, y luego cree grupos familiares aparte con los datos que solicitan en la importacion de familias
  • Hi Ghulam,

    The order looks something like:
    - Import Users
    - Import Family (with a unique Family Sync Key)
    - Import Family - Adults
    - Import Family - Children
    - Import Family - Relationships

    This is possibly one of the more complex parts of Gibbon to get initially imported (next to timetables). Not all the fields are required though, so for a minimum you just need:

    - Adults: sync key + parent username + contact priority
    - Children: sync key + student username
    - Relationships: sync key + parent username + child username

    Hope this helps!

  • Dear Sandra

    Your post clarifies very much. This should be part of Setting Up Gibbon Guide.

    Another question is, Can the Adult Username be same as Family Sync key?

    Because Adult Username is unique.

    Also we are considering using Pakistan ID as Adult Username. And same as Family sync key. This way if another student of the family joins we can see the adult and family already exists in the system.
  • Dear Afaq,
    Welcome to Gibbon Community. I am also from Pakistan.That will be great if it happens . I think Sandra can answer it . I am also working on Urdu translation of Gibbon which is 70 % completed . So we both can help each other . could you share your email id.
  • Intro and Contact sent.
  • Dear Afaq,

    I just tested the scenario that you are in and I am pleased that it worked.

    You can do it on your end as Make CNIC of Parent as Parent Username and Family Sync Key.

    Best Regards,
