To download the .d (database file) - the process to download the file remains unchanged - it's the same process that you used previously through the existing OASIS menu except you are uploading your absences to EBS4 instead of OASIS so all you need to do is the following:

  1. Select the >Admin tab
  2. Select >OASIS Integration 
  3. Select >Export Absences
  4. IMPORTANT STEP: please select absences for one week - in the start date and end date section. ebs4 only accepts one week of absences at a time so make sure you do the export for a week at a time.
  5. On the right-hand side of the screen, select >Start Export 
  6. Once the database file is compiled, you will see >Download File
  7. Select >Download File and save it on a network drive or your local drive
  8. If you see that your computer is trying open the file instead of allowing you to save it - all you need to do is - hover your mouse over the >Download File option; right-click and save the file on a network drive or your local drive. 
  9. Then simply follow the processes outlined for importing in ebs4 - the DEC's instructions - see attached
