Making the Mobile App work
I can't seem to get PT Mobile to work on an iPad. Can someone send me some instructions that aren't as vague as the ones on PowerSource? I can find the district when I search, but it doesn't seem to hold the information to log in.

Are you running 7.0.3 or 7.1 (current).  If so it is broken on those two releases.

We are hosted now, so running the most current version. I guess I'm glad to know it's not just me :~P

Does anyone know if this got fixed?

It is working on my iPad.

If I set up the District->District>Other>Miscellaneous page to have the following:
Disable PowerSource Registration  (unchecked)
Mobile App Server Address:
Mobile App Port Number: 443
Mobile App SSL   (unchecked, but I've tried both ways
EnabledDistrict Postal Code: 69201

I can find the server in the iPad by searching for the Zip code.

If I take out the https:// before the DNS I get an error message.

I have the web address and the port number the same on the iPad with SSL turned off. I've checked to make sure that the port number is correct.

When I look in the Global Server Settings, Secure Server SSL is checked.

I know I'm missing something obvious, can someone point me in the right direction?

Miscellaneous Settings:

Disable PowerSource Registration (unchecked)
Mobile App Server Address: (remove the https://)
Mobile App Port Number: 443
Mobile App SSL Enabled: (checked)
District Postal Code: (Your zip code 5 digits only)

iPad Settings:

Server Address: (no https://)
Port Number: 443
SSL Enabled: ON

Make sure your PowerSchool Server is running 7.1.2 or above.  If it doesn't work, you may have to restart PS for the settings to take effect and for it to run through the registration process.  You shouldn't have to mess with the Global Server Settings.

That worked!! YAY!

Thanks Bryan, you're the best!!
