For any student enrollment, this is how D2L “manual” enrollments in timetable courses will be affected by the regular overnight PAWS update:
  • a student who is not enrolled in PAWS but who is manually enrolled in D2L will remain enrolled in D2L (no enrollments flow *from* D2L *to* PAWS, ever)
  • a student who is not enrolled in PAWS and who is manually enrolled in D2L, who also later enrolls via PAWS, then subsequently unenrolls in PAWS (which happens often) will need to be manually unenrolled from D2L — the manual enrollment effectively “breaks” the link that would otherwise automatically unenroll the student from D2L
  • a student who is enrolled in PAWS and who is automatically enrolled in D2L via the PAWS update, and who is manually UNenrolled from D2L, but who remains enrolled in PAWS, will be re-enrolled in D2L with each overnight update from PAWS
Needless to say, we recommend NOT manually enrolling students because of the complications that arise.
