MobyMax supports FTP imports for schools and districts that have either an active school or district license. District administrators can upload .csv files to our Moby FTP server to import students and teachers. If desired, you can further automate this process by setting up a periodic automatic upload from your SIS to our FTP server. 

To get started with Moby FTP:

  1. After signing in to your MobyMax district administrator account, click on the "Auto Roster" button.
  2. Select the "Moby FTP" tab at the top of the page.
  3. On the right side of the screen, you can download our FTP templates for students and teachers via the "Download CSV template for students" and "Download CSV template for teachers" links.
  4. The information to connect to our FTP server will be listed under "Step 3" and you can also set your password for the Moby FTP server in this section.


On the teacher template, you can select to fill in either the NCES School ID field or the Exact School Name field but you will not need to enter both. 

Please note: In "Step 2" you will see upload buttons for teachers and students that are used to validate your FTP 
files before you upload them to your client. This allows you to spot potential errors before uploading those to the FTP server.
