Mass Extract of Attachments

Use this utility to create a local copy of student attachments. The files will be extracted from the eSchoolPlus Attachments database; extracting attachments does not remove the student attachments from eSchoolPlus. You can only extract attachments that you have security to view.

When attachments are extracted, the student's ID is added as a prefix to the attachment's file name. Optionally, you can also include the attachment's category in the file name after the student ID. For example, if student 1011156 has an attachment Residency.pdf in the category PROOF, then the file name for the extracted file would be:


This tool extracts the attachments stored in the Attachments database. It does not extract documents that display in Student Attachments based on the PowerSchool Enrollment Document Integration feature. Those documents are stored in Enrollment.
