I am the IT for a very small rural district. We are 100% virtual right now, into our 3rd week of school. We are using Microsoft Teams and I was able to create the Teams through syncing with PowerSchool, but when I try to do the Grade Sync, the teachers get the error message: Multiple users in the system are associated with the email address. Please ask your IT administrator to remove duplicate users and try again. I've looked on the Microsoft side and there are no duplicate users. It seems mainly to be on the High School side for teachers who teacher different subjects, or who teach at high school and perhaps also at middle school. But not consistent enough to say this is the error. Teachers are getting frustrated (as well as myself!) I don't know where to look to try to fix this and can't find anything else on the subject between PowerSchool and Microsoft that fixes it.
thank you for your post in PowerSchool Community!
We would want to take a closer look at the set up to troubleshoot the issue further. We recommend connecting with the Designated Support Contacts within PowerSchool Community to assist you further in finding the cause of the error you are receiving when trying to do a Grade Sync.
Thank you for your response Reshma. I do not know how to contact Designated Support Contacts, that's why I finally found myself on the Community. I can't get anyone to answer emails, the last person I thought was my PowerSchool rep is no longer with the company, and my teachers are finishing up their 3rd week with students online. Any advice on how to contact them?
We recommend working with a school or district administrators to connect with the Designated Support Contacts within your district. There can be multiple Designated Support Contacts within each district. Designated Support Contacts are employees within each district who have the ability to work directly with the PowerSchool support team.
Thank you for your reply.
We are an extremely small district. I AM the school and district administrator. But there have been so many changes within PowerSchool that I no longer know who our assigned rep is. But I will continue to wait for someone from PowerSchool to finally return an email to advise me who to contact. I had been warned when looking for a new SIS that customer service would be like this with PowerSchool. So I am not surprised. Just disappointed that I can't get help for my teachers.
To help you further, I will reach out to you over a private message, this is part of our efforts to protect the privacy of our community members.

Were you able to find a solution? Can the solution be shared here? I've been having this issue for awhile and MS tech support is a 1 out of 100 stars. PS tech support can't support it because the error is on MS's platform. So solutions suggested above might now work. It hasn't for me. It's extremely frustrating for our teachers and myself because I want to solve the problem not one knows how to help
Yes! I finally had a Microsoft specialist who was spectacular assist me, and as I remember, (since it was a year ago, it was an easy fix. Let me look back in my notes and see what I can find. It had something to do with duplicate accounts in PS, so once we made the duplicate accounts inactive, everything worked perfectly. It really was a matter of removing a checkmark.
That's great that you got it working. I deactivated that previous teacher account and still having the sync error. I am getting another sync error that says No field access - assignments.standardscoringmethod". I was searching for this error first and came across your post.
BTW, do you have a phone number you use for MS tech support? My contact method reassigns me to a department that is on India time zone. That department doesn't start work until 9PM my time.
