Clever settings

This section of your account allows you to view the status of your Clever sync, logs of past syncs, and change the way we handle your data. Please note that these settings are only accessible to account administrators. To access them, go to
Tools Clever.

Notice: If your district uses Clever and you'd like to use it to manage your TypingClub account, reach out to support@typingclub.com for more information. We're happy to guide you through the setup process.

Status overview

The Overview tab displays your sync status broken down by type of data - schools, teachers, classes, students, school admins, and admins.



Run a sync

TypingClub pulls in new data from Clever each night around 2 am EST. If you want to sync your account at any other point, you can do so by clicking Sync Now on the overview page. There are two options:

  • Incremental sync: will bring in any changes from Clever that have occurred since the last sync.

  • Full sync: Normally, Clever syncs pick up only changes that occurred since the last sync. If you wish to start a fresh sync that pulls all the data, use this option. Please be warned that this option will override any other manual changes you may have made to individual records.

Logs

The logs allow you to view an on-screen summary of what was created, updated, and deleted during each sync. If you'd like to see more information on each sync, click View Details to see a detailed list.
