Salamander Active Directory supports Apple School Manager

Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal for IT administrators to manage people, devices and content all from one place. Managed Apple IDs are created automatically when you connect Apple School Manager to your school’s register data, and they give students access to iCloud, iTunes U and Shared iPad. If you’re not using these services you can even deploy iPad without an Apple ID. Students simply turn on the device and get to work, no sign-in is required. If your school’s needs change, you can create Managed Apple IDs and distribute them to students later.

Salamander Active Directory can be used to link your school information system, whatever it is, to Apple School Manager. We can either create csv files for you to upload manually, or automatically upload the files into Apple School Manager so the process is fully automated.

As with all our products, the link with Apple School Manager is completely customisable. The csv files can be generated for the entire school or filtered by any criteria if you want to initially test with a subset of data. In addition the data in each column can be customised exactly how you want it e.g. whether to use legal or preferred names.

If you are an existing customer and would like this set up please email support@salamandersoft.co.uk, otherwise for more information please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk.

Salamander Active Directory now supports Google’s Team Drives

logo-driveI am pleased to announce, that in addition to supporting Google Drive, Salamander Active Directory now also supports Team Drives.

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device.

Unlike files in My Drive, files in Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.

We now have the capability to automatically create the team drives and any folder structure you want in them, including assigning permissions to the drives and folders. As with all our integrations it is all completely configurable so it’s just limited by your imagination and what works for your school.

So whatever school management system you use, whether it is SIMS, iSAMs, Progresso, PowerSchool or any of the others we support we can now integrated it with Google Drive.

If you are an existing customer and would like this set up please email support@salamandersoft.co.uk, otherwise for more information please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk.

I am pleased to announce that Salamander Active Directory now supports Google Drive. This means that we can provision folder hierarchies and share them automatically for your users.

For example you might want every student to have a folder for every subject they take which is shared with their teachers. As with all our integrations it is all completely configurable so it’s just limited by your imagination and what works for your school.

So whatever school management system you use, whether it is SIMS, iSAMs, Progresso, PowerSchool or any of the others we support we can now integrated it with Google Drive.
