AdminPlus: New Features
Enable AdminPlus Mobile App
- Setup > General > Enable Mobile App Access
The following message will appear after enabling Mobile App Access
- Once Mobile App Access is enabled the Manage Home Users screen will include a column to allow users to have AP Mobile App Access. File > User/Security (Enhanced) > Manage Users:
NOTE: When AP Mobile App Access is selected the program will validate the current password and prompt the user to change, if the current password does not obey the following rules:
At least one lowercase letter
At least one uppercase letter
At least one number
A minimum of 8 characters
- No two AP users can have the same E-Mail Address. The "E-Mail Address" and "Enable E-Mail/AP Notify" columns will be pre-populated from the E-Mail Settings screen and will be saved in the same record. Editing in the Users screen will reflect in the E-Mail Settings screen and visa versa.
When the Manage Home Users screen is closed, a sync process will be initiated to sync AdminPlus user information to the cloud.
- Tools > TeacherPlus Setup & Sync Manager > Send Sync Settings > Enable AdminPlus Notify for Mobile App
This option will be disabled if the school does not have an AP Notify license. The option can be set to "Yes" only if the Mobile App Access is enabled under Setup >General > Enable Mobile App access, else the following message is shown.
When the AP Notify option is selected, the student and staff DB fields required for AP Notify will be automatically added to DB field settings for syncing.
Sync is started automatically when this new spec option is enabled or disabled for syncing AP Notify specifications.
- Tools > TeacherPlus Setup & Sync Manager > Demographic Fields can be used to add additional demographic fields for use in the AdminPlus app.
