  4. Enter the Password.

Step 7, Sync Aliases

When migrating Little SIS Sync Agent to Little SIS Premium, you transfer aliases used so that Little SIS Premium can use those aliases. 

  1. To transfer aliases, select I have used Little SIS Sync Agent in the past (desktop/server installed). Additional information appears. 
    • The Select a created on or after date lets you narrow the aliases that are synced based on the Google Classroom creation date. Enter a date in the field provided.
    • Click TRANSFER ALIASES.
  2. If you have not used Little SIS Sync agent, select I have not used Little SIS Sync Agent in the past.
  3. Click Next to go to the next step. 

Note: Transferring aliases can take some time, depending on the number of Google Classroom classes. However, this will run in the background, so you can continue to use Little SIS Premium during the transfer.

Note: You can also view the alias information within the Little SIS for Classroom explorer.

Step 8, Next Steps

This step lets you know that you have successfully configured your Little SIS Premium account and provides you with links on where you would like to go next.
