The first time Emerge is used, it will download all of the information from the MIS. It won’t do this every time you use it, but it will do it periodically based on the different types of information it uses.
For example, it will only download student photographs every 10 days, but it will download student records once a day and attendance many times a day.
Emerge will manage this itself, so when you see “Fetching…”, some of the information is out of date and needs to be updated. All of this is configurable based on the preferences of the school subscribing to Emerge.
