About this course

Clarity Human Services: Introduction to the Data Import Tool course was created with System Administrators and Data Analysts in mind.

About the Tool: Standard HUD data elements can be imported via either the HUD CSV or HUD XML formats. By extending the HUD XML schema, the Data Import Tool supports the import of customer-defined XML data elements. This session will give an overview of the import process and the functionality that is available in the DIT, including a description of import options, importing custom fields, data matching/merging (including client matching algorithms) and tips for reviewing and troubleshooting imports.

In the end, we hope that you find the training valuable, easy to understand, and enjoyable.

Sincerely, 

The Bitfocus Learning & Development Team
