Adding top up funding to a student

I'm still stuck!


  • Is it possible to bulk update the students who need to have funding attached to them?

  • Hi Jenny, I'm afraid it isn't possible to update funding for students in bulk. You'll need to add it for each student.

  • It's problematic for a school such as ours having to do this individually - the amount of clicks is ridiculous.  We have several hundred students who are in receipt of various/multiple bursaries.  Surely this is a feature that needs to be added in?

  • Hi Andrew, although I appreciate this frustration, we don't currently have plans to build this. You would need to add your feedback by following our feedback process here.
