Match existing users to their accounts
If your students have already been using Education Perfect without a Cloudwork®/Studentnet integration, their EP accounts will need to be linked to the email address that Cloudwork®/Studentnet uses to confirm their identity. The above settings will make this their email address, but we use the test accounts to confirm everything is configured correctly.
We'll match up with everyone we can on your behalf. We will then send you a list of anyone we couldn't match. Once you send us the details for those people, we'll update them as well.
