Has there been any update on this?

Does there exist an API for other LMS's to submit results to the ECF grading system?

My understanding is that there is an API but it is uni-directional to allow data to be pulled from the ECF LMS.

There is not an API to shunt data to the ECF LMS and there are no plans to develop one.

Of course, that does not mean that there is not a demand for it.

I believe the answer is no and the current process is described in this video.

Thanks for that.

Do you know where I can get an Excel template of the rating submission files?

We have an open offer to graders to work with us to upload their results automatically to the rating system. The Exel format, while not secret, is available to graders as part of their joining instructions. If Robin needs to become a grader then he should contact Matt Carr at grading@englishchess.org.uk.
