Added Two-Factor Authentication for Teacher Accounts
On the Manage Accounts > Settings page, the "plusportaladmin" account can enable two-factor authentication to improve security for teacher accounts. When teachers are logging in to PlusPortals, they will be asked to enter a verification code. The code is sent to their account email and must be entered within 15 minutes for security purposes.
Added Ability to Sync Microsoft Calendars with PlusPortals Calendars
Administrators can sync their Microsoft calendars with their PlusPortals calendars.
Updated Course Request Forms
We made the following updates to course request forms:
- Forms show overall credit requirements in addition to section requirements. Students and teachers can verify they've met the credit requirements before attempting to submit the form.
- If a section has comments, it will be yellow and have an icon beside it.
Added Scheduling Year Filter for Batch Entering Course Recommendations
When batch entering course recommendations, teachers and administrators can filter for students in the scheduling year.
Fixed Delayed Appearance of School Announcements
Previously, when administrators created school announcements, they could take up to four hours to appear. We fixed this issue.
