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.

SalamanderSoft Active Directory Now Supports Google Drive

logo-drive

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.

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.

Guardians and Parents in Google Classroom Now Supported By Salamander Active Directory

96x96_yellow_stroke_icon1x_thumbGoogle Classroom has just launched a new feature to support parents and guardians – blog post. This will allow Google Classroom to share summaries of student work with parents. They can receive daily or weekly email summaries of student work and class announcements, allowing them to keep up-to-date with what’s happening in the classroom.

We’re pleased to announce that we have added support for this to Salamander Active Directory, allowing it to automatically invite your students’ parents to Google Classroom, rather than an administrator needing to do it for each student. We can also remove parents from classroom if they stop having parental responsibility. This will work whether you use SIMS, Facility, iSAMS, Pass or any other MIS.

If you are using Google Classroom and Salamander Active Directory and would like to implement this then just email support and we’ll get it set up for you. Note, you will need to make sure that your contact information is clean and up to date before using it.

For more information on how we can create classrooms directly from your MIS/SIS please email info@salamandersoft.co.uk,
