AdminPlus.com Release: Release 2

We are excited to let you know about a number of new features and enhancements! This update also requires an update to classic Administrator's Plus so non-hosted schools will need to install the latest service pack. Schools that have opted-in to AdminPlus.com and want to use edit mode should e-mail Apcom@rediker.com so we can set up the process that will bring the data into classic Administrator's Plus. This service will not be visible to users but will keep classic Administrator's Plus updated with the edits made in AdminPlus.com.

Schools that have opted in to AdminPlus.com must run an All Data Sync from the TeacherPlus Setup & Sync Manager for these changes to take effect. The Send all Pictures and Send All IEP's options can remain unchecked. 

The Supervisor can choose by module if they want to edit Attendance, Demographics, Contacts, Portfolio, and Incidents in classic Administrator's Plus or the new AdminPlus. Edit will only be available to users with edit rights in schools that have selected to edit in AdminPlus.com. 

For more information about Edit and the AdminPlus.com settings, please see the Administrator's Plus Release Notes.
