Steps for Upgrading from V3 to V4
Upgrading from Version 3 to Version 4 is simple and quick. First, you will need access to the school manager site. This is the web manager many of you have been using – school.ccssvm.com. If you have been pulling reports online, you can continue along, otherwise you will need to ensure you are active on the school manager. You can contact support to be added.
Once you have this, you can go to school.ccssvm.com to login to the school manager. This section takes over for the local manager, where reports are pulled and where global badge settings are changed. Make note of this site as you’ll need it later.
On the school manager site, you’ll see a “Client App” button in the navigation bar to the left. Clicking this will take you to Client.ccssvm.com, and you can login with the same credentials as the web manager. Just like the web manager this can be accessed from anywhere, but to be able to use it you’ll need to create a station. Your first station should be made at the computer that is currently running the Ident-A-Kid software where your equipment is currently hooked up.
On the first page, you’ll have a “Get Started” button, click this to continue.
You’ll be presented with Station Setup Options. A station is a group of settings that our system uses to save your configuration – this includes what equipment is running at the station as well as particulars for what badges are using what equipment, and which badges are in use.
New creates a new station. Choose this option.
Next, you’ll be presented with selections for a settings template. This controls base equipment configurations. Choose Blank for now – this is recommended so we can set up exactly what we need, nothing less and nothing more.
Then, you’ll select your school. Most will only see one school here, but if you’re a tech or district employee then you might see some more here. Ensure you’re selecting the right school here.
Finally, you’ll name the station. We recommend a descriptive name, something like where it’s at and what it’s doing. Front Office Kiosk, office staff, Tardy station, what have you.
The next option will ask about offline support. Offline mode is a function that will save your global and station settings to the browser cache, so if you lose internet access you can continue to process check-ins and the system will hold onto that data to upload it to the servers once access is restored. Activating this is optional but recommended. Do keep in mind that there will be a pause here when it’s activated so it can load the data.
Next you will be asked if you plan to print badges. If you are running or plan on running a Dymo printer, you will need to select Yes. This will take you down the Client Agent Install, that can be continued here.
After this, you will be at the home page, where you will see the welcome screen, check-in and check-out buttons, and you’ll see the school and station name at the top right.
