You may upgrade your report-in-progress to the current version of STARS at any time from 'My Submission' within the STARS Reporting Tool:
When upgrading from one version of STARS to another, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Not all credits and fields map directly between versions, so some fields or data may not transfer to the new version. It may be worth reviewing the differences between versions before migrating.
- All credits that include migrated data will be marked as In Progress after the upgrade.
- Any existing scores will reset to zero as a result, and must be re-established manually by changing the status of credits to "Complete" and/or editing data as desired.
Of course, if there is no data in your current submission ('My Submission'), then there still won't be any data after this upgrade. If your current data set is empty, but you have a previously submitted report or saved snapshot, you will be able to import data from one of those sources with a Data Migration. This can be done from the 'My Summary - Manage Data' section of the Reporting Tool.
