OpenApply has a very flexible import facility under Settings > Import & Export > Import whereby you can select the fields you would like to import. You can populate any of the standard fields or custom fields that the school has defined. These new values will then be visible in any of the forms that use those fields.
Please see the comprehensive help for this functionality: Importing Data into OpenApply.
SchoolsBuddy does not have a self-service import function, but schools that don't use an automated data sync may supply CSV uploads of student & parent data, and staff data to the Support team for upload. Example templates can be found in CSV / Manual Import.
