Infinite Campus Messenger 
Do you have rights to view other calendars? Please make sure that when you send a message via Messenger that you are in the correct school and year so other schools and students do not receive your message. The IT Department was able to check with Support on this matter to see see if there is a way to prevent this from happening. We were hoping there would be a way prevent users from sending messages that have view only access to, there is not a way. We did have our case attached to an IDEA Enhancement request that has been created by other districts wanting the same solution. 
 
 
 
 
New Counseling Module Features
There are a couple new areas under the Counseling Module that I wanted to share with you:
Transcript and Scheduling Tabs. Please take a look at the new additions, I think you will like it. If you are unable to see the tabs, log out of IC and back in.

 
Infinite Campus Google Single Sign On
We are now using Google SSO (Single Sign On) authentication in Infinite Campus for staff and student accounts.
Instead of using the fields to log into Infinite Campus, you can select the "Log in with Google (SSO)" button. All staff accounts have been converted to sign on this way.

Infinite Campus Cloud Hosting
Our district switched to Cloud Hosting in July 2018. What does this mean? We no longer host the server with Infinite Campus at our District Administration office. All our data is living on a server with Infinite Campus Headquarters.
