Go Live Week Overview

Congratulations on reaching your live week! This will be your first week of using Office for Digital Attendance, Billing, CCS submissions. This will be a busy week, but once you settle in and parents become more familiar with Xplor, you will start to enjoy the efficiencies the platform brings. 

 

Before Go-Live week 

Webinars  

It is extremely important to watch the live or recorded webinars so you are fully prepared to start using Xplor.  

CCS submissions QK  

Please ensure you submit CCS in QK by EOD Friday before go live. This will be your final CCS submission in QK. You should retrieve these by Tuesday of live week.  

Parents  

Ensure your parents are signed up to Home so they are ready to sign in using the Hub on Monday. If they have not signed up by Monday, you will need to use the Master Roll in Xplor Office to take attendance or Playground if you have this.  

Bookings  

Check that the bookings for live week are correct, you can do this in the Master Roll and should scroll to the correct week using the date picker at the top.  

Digital attendances using the Hub  

Setup the Hub ready for parents to sign in on Monday. You will no longer be using Kiosk to capture any attendances.   

Final payments  

Final payments through direct debit should be made by Friday BEFORE Go-live. No payments will be taken during your live week.  

If any other types of payments are made during live week (eftpos, cash, bank deposit), you should add these in Xplor by going to Financial > add payments. Please do not record in QK.  

 

Monday of Go- Live Week 

Take attendances using Hub or Xplor Office  

Ensure your parents are signing in on the hub to take attendances, or that they are captured in the Master Roll or through Playground successfully and therefore submitted accurately and automatically to CCS on the Friday evening of Go Live Week.  

Provide CCS Codes to your onboarding Specialist  

Your onboarding specialist will normally connect your CCS connection on Wednesday of Live week - you will need to supply several Codes found in PRODA, this can only be done by someone with management control in CCS. You will be sent instructions on how to do this.  

ISS  

If you have inclusion support you will need to provide some CCMS information before the second week of launching Xplor, please let your onboarding specialist know if you have ISS. If you are not sure what these are. It's best to get in touch with DESE early in your onboarding journey as they can take some time to respond.  

 

Wednesday of Go-Live Week 

Connect CCS  

Your onboarding specialist will disconnect CCS from QK and connect it to Xplor. You should then check the government enrolments tab and check all enrolments for children. 

 

Thursday of Go-Live Week 

Parent balance transfers  

You will be asked to pencil your bookings in QK, run a report and to input each family's balance information into a spreadsheet provided by your onboarding specialist. Specific instructions on this will be given on the day and it’s important to do this on Thursday, ready for your billing to start the following week.  

It is extremely important to quality check these balances as the transactions cannot be deleted once imported.
