Does anyone know how I can change the timeout option for PowerTeacher Attendance? Teachers would rather not have to log in each period to take attendance, which they never had to do until recently. I haven't changed anything, but maybe a recent update might have triggered something. Pearson Support told me to change the time at School > Attendance Preferences > Interval Duration. This didn't work; teacher still has to log in. Any ideas? Not a pressing issue. TIA.

Ours is doing the same thing only it's also logging out Admin too. I went in and change the Time Out to 90 minutes and it is still logging us out after about 15-20 minutes. I guess I will need to call tech support :(

If teachers were to take attendance via their gradebooks, it looks like you can make the sort of desired setting via PT Administrator>Gradebooks>Preferences.  But that might log you out after a few minutes regardless of what you set as well.

Of course, the value of a secure website is diminished if it is just left open on desktops all day, including when teachers may not be in their rooms monitoring their computers.

We are experiencing the same thing.  My teachers started coming to me on Monday with this issue.  I tried adjusting the settings as well with no luck.

Do any of you include MAPS and NWEA scores for your class rank?   Our school wants to do this.   How do you set up your formulas in powerschool to do this?   Any help is appreciated!

OK, here's my question for today: Why is my School Event Calendar not working in the parent portal? I can't find anything in PowerSource or on PSUG about troubleshooting it. Calendar dates are set up under Notes in School Setup > Calendar Setup. In the past, I haven't had to do anything to turn the calendar event calendar on. When I log in as a parent and subscribe to the school event calendar, I get an empty calendar called "District" instead of "Marian High School." What's not set correctly? Thank you, Oh Great PowerSchool minds!

Does PowerSchool allow you to create an additional parent login/pw for those parents who are divorced? I thought I could do this by creating a new parent access account under Student > Access Accounts but it's not working. Is this even possible? I can't find anything in PowerSource about it. TIA.

If you are using single sign-on for the parent portal, parents can create their own accounts and associate kids to those accounts with access ID and password information you set up in PowerSchool.

In theory, then, that would allow for an unlimited number of people to create accounts to view information on the same kid.  

If you are using the Parent Single Sign On feature, then each parent can create their own account. If not, then you can only assign one parent account per student.

The Parent Single Sign On works great for divorced parents, guardians, social workers, etc. They can each create their own account.

When you enable single parent sign-on, it is for the entire district. Also, if parents have set email preferences in the original account, theses will be cleared when you turn on the SSO. They will not receive emails until they create a single parent sign-on account and create email prefs there.
