The information in Strunk’s hosted ODP Manager software is updated daily when an extract file from the core processor is uploaded. This file can be committed each day by an ODP Manager user prior to generating letters and reviewing reports. Strunk also offers an Automatic Upload option for institutions that meet the criteria below.
If an institution is able to create the updated core extract file automatically to a specified location, the Automatic Upload process may be possible. There is a one-time setup process – the first step is to install the upload client. The second step is updating the configuration details with user and file variables specific to the institution. The final step is to create a scheduled task. The scheduled task will start the import overnight after the extract file update and before users start their workday.
Even if the daily import is usually performed by the Automatic Upload process, your users will still be able to manually import a file if the scheduled import does not complete as expected. Each day when the import process runs, specified individuals or a group email address will receive an email detailing whether the import completed successfully.
Please contact Strunk Support at email@example.com with any questions or to find out more details about this import option.
