Once you have your DRDP Export form, the next step is to sign into ChildFolio's web portal to handle the merge! ChildFolio Web Portal Access
From ChildFolio's web interface, please navigate to the student view, located on the left inside of the smiley face.
When the next menu loads, please select your class from the drop-down on the left hand side, and then push the "Merge DRDP-Tech" button at top.
The next pop up window will prompt you for a rating period, dates, and a file.
If you have a rating period configured, do not attempt to select dates.
If you do not have a rating period, you may select a date range to report.
The file it is asking for, is the file downloaded from DRDP Tech
If all information matches, such as class names and children names, you will receive a notice of success and a link to download the merged file!
However if there is a misprint and something doesn't match, ChildFolio will give you an alert displaying why it couldn't merge.
Once the successful merge has taken place and you've downloaded the file, we're ready to return to the DRDP Tech website to submit the ratings!
You can follow How to upload the merged DRDP Tech export & ChildFolio ratings for the next step in the process!
If you need to download your DRDP Tech export file, you can follow How do I download my DRDP Tech export file? for the instructions!
