The ClassLink integration process is broken up into four major parts:

2. Upload your Roster
3. Set up Sharing Rights
4. Sync your data

Set up Sharing Rules

Permissions on what can and cannot be shared between Fathom Reads and ClassLink are handled exclusively on ClassLink in the Permissions Dashboard. This is an extensive topic that offers extensive customization on the ClassLink side of things.

Thankfully, ClassLink has a very helpful support page that details the ins and outs of sharing rules. Head over to their support page here.

Once you have your sharing permissions set up, you can return to this support page to finish up the process!
