We are excited to introduce AdminPlus.com to our users! When Rediker began implementing AdminPlus.com, users had to fill out an Opt-In form to get setup with AdminPlus.com. We moved away from use of the Opt-In form. With the release of Administrator's Plus V 6.2.03.01, we have all that is needed in the sync manager for schools to on-board themselves, provided that prerequisites have been met.
For those that have already started using AdminPlus.com and want to use Edit features, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to get this set up for your school.
- Mobile App is enabled
This allows the e-mail on classic Administrator's Plus Manage Users screen to be used as the login to AdminPlus.com. It is not necessary to grant Mobile App access for Users to be able to use AdminPlus.com but please follow these steps to enable the app. Please see Set up Administrator's Plus for AdminPlus Mobile App Use in the AdminPlus Mobile App User guide.
- Administrator's Plus latest version is installed
Non-Hosted schools not already on V 6.2.03.01 should download the latest version from the Application Downloads page.
TeacherPlus Setup and Sync Manager Settings
TeacherPlus Sync is used to send data from classic Administrator's Plus to AdminPlus.com, AP Mobile app, AdminPlus Online Forms, PlusPortals, and TeacherPlus Gradebook. What data is sent, and when it is sent, is determined by the settings below.
- Administrator's Plus > Tools > TeacherPlus Setup and Sync Manager:
- Demographic Fields: Select all fields for Students and Staff. This will not affect what is visible in PlusPortals or TeacherPlus. However, the fields will be available for selection in PlusPortals Admin and GB Manager.
- Send Sync Settings > 4. Send Non-Teaching Staff Data > Yes: This will send Staff members with an APID of ST301 or higher.
- Portfolio Items: The Portfolio categories need to be selected and sent in the sync. Portfolio items will be displayed based on the Visibility settings in Administrator’s Plus.
School's using AdminPlus.com should enable Auto-Send in Administrator's Plus under Setup > School Office Suite (SOS) Interface Options > B. Auto Send to TeacherPlus and PlusPortals? > Yes. This will ensure that AdminPlus.com will be updated as the edit screens are closed.
Grant User Access
The Administrator's Plus Supervisor can grant access to AdminPlus.com by going to File > Users/Security (Enhanced) > Manage Users, enter the user's e-mail and check AP Mobile App Access to verify the password. If the user does not have a strong password the Supervisor will be prompted to update the password. If the user should only have AdminPlus.com access and not AP Mobile app Access, then AP Mobile App Access can be unchecked. Please see Set up Administrator's Plus for AdminPlus Mobile App Use in the AdminPlus Mobile App User guide.
Two-factor authentication is used on the AP Mobile app and AdminPlus.com so it’s important that users have access to the email account being used as their username. Without access, they will not be able to receive the 2FA code in their email.
Once these steps have been completed, you can visit your unique AdminPlus.com link. This link is similar your school’s current PlusPortals URL.
If your PlusPortal URL is www.plusportals.com/RedikerHighSchool, you would replace plusportals.com with adminplus.com. Your URL in this example would be https://www.adminplus.com/RedikerHighSchool.
