TSDS Unique ID batch files are created on the Texas State Reporting page. The Enrollment Tracking file, for uploading student enrollment tracking and leaver data to TSDS, is created on the Enrollment Tracking tab. The Enrollment Tracking process uses the enrollment data in the Enrollment History (ENR) table to create a file of student enrollment data in the format specified by the state. This file can then be uploaded to the TSDS portal. The Enrollment Tracking process will honor a KEEP or SKIP query.
Admin permissions to the State Reporting security area are required to run the Unique ID batch file process.
