Online Enrollment Import- Add option to search IDN District Student Lookup records
Add an option to the Online Enrollment Import page to be able to search IDN records in addition to STU records.

The issue/problem that this idea addresses is to account for when a registrar is trying to determine whether a student already has an existing record/ID (i.e. a student who attended the district at some point in the past but is not attending the current year) via the "Find Matches" search from the Pending Import list, the search algorithm is unable to find a match due to the fact that that it only considers the STU table and not the IDN table.
The resulting problem is that the registrar may interpret that a previous record/ID does not exist, therefore concluding it is a brand new student and may create a duplicate record/ID.
Thus, this idea that was created by QC is to modify the Find Matches algorithm to include the IDN table in addition to STU for a more thorough search to prevent the above scenario.
This is in conjunction to the ability to perform a District Student Lookup search, however, that is completely separate from the Import Student screens which some registrars may not be aware of.
