SIS Integration can now be set to Google Classroom. This allows you to fully integrate your Google Classroom setup into Lightspeed Systems products, including all your Google Classroom groups and memberships. This will allow customers who already have Google Classroom to save significant time on group and user management and ensure that all data is accurate and in sync across all platforms.
Nightly imports are ran to sync data. Manual imports can also be run by clicking Options > Sync Now from the SIS page. The import will create/rename groups, add users to groups, and remove users from groups. Groups will not be deleted, however. Users added to Google Classroom will be synced to Launch in the next sync. Group owners will automatically be added as such (ex. teachers as owners of classes.)
Note: The Google Classroom SIS sync will not overwrite any previously imported/manually created groups.
Note: API Access needs to be enabled in order for Google sync to work.
Within Google Admin, navigate to Security > API Reference and check the Enable API Access box under API access.
