Product Updates

30+ Vendors Join DataGuard

Over thirty edtech vendor partners now accept class roster data protected with DataGuard! Data Guard, part of ClassLink's advanced IAM suite, is a ClassLink Roster Server upgrade that empowers schools to take control of the data they share with vendors. Instead of giving vendor partners all the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of students and staff, Data Guard lets schools share only essential data and mask all other key fields.

Available Now!

Smart Rostering

New Smart Rostering features in Roster Server save time and increase security. Inside Roster Server, schools will find vendor-defined required rostering fields, saving schools the hassle of researching, calling, and checking which fields they need to send to vendors. With these updates, schools increase data security by only sending necessary data.

Coming Soon

AI Rostering Support

Inside Roster Server, schools will also find a new AI Support Bot, named Clif, ready to save time by providing helpful in-the-moment answers to Roster Server questions directly within the product.

Available Now!

Audit Center Upgrades

ClassLink’s recently launched Audit Center is already gaining new features. Schools can currently create rubrics within Audit Center, and soon, they will also be able to create their own Checklists!

Audit Center's new Certified Reviewers Marketplace will also help schools quickly find and connect with Certified Cybersecurity Rubric Evaluators (CCREs). The marketplace provides a list of certified CCREs and their contact info, making it easier for schools to get expert help in aligning cybersecurity efforts with industry standards.

Coming Soon

Unified & Upgraded Analytics

Updated and improved Analytics and Analytics+ reports will soon be available in one unified interface with the same look and feel. This upgrade also introduces new data that matters to school leaders everywhere: Time On Task.
