    Question

    Some user records fail to load in SIS (Student Information System, Patron Loader). The reason is that the gender is blank or 'Unknown'. How to load the records?

    Answer

    The documentation says: "The user's gender. Possible values are Male, Female, None."

    Please put "None" instead of "Unknown" or blank.
