Homepages – Staff and Pupil

Mar 26, 2018   //   by inspireict   //   Free tutorials  //  No Comments

Each school has two bespoke internet homepages – one for Staff and the other for Pupils.  Each page has a link to the school website, a Google Safe Search searchbar and a number of hyperlinks to various online website resources specific to each school.

The hyperlink grid underneath the search bar can be customised.  If you require any links to be added or removed, please raise a support case detailing which sites you want added or removed and whether they are to be added to the pupil page, staff page or both pages.  We will confirm these changes with the ICT lead at the school and get the changes underway.

Sending files securely – LGfL USO-FX2

Mar 11, 2012   //   by inspireict   //   Free tutorials  //  No Comments

The Share files feature is designed to allow USO-users to share files securely with any other USO account holders within their school, in other school, in the Local Authority, or any other establishment that uses USO authentication.

Please note that this feature can only be used by staff members who have at least some storage space available to them in myDrive. If a person has no myDrive space, the page will be disabled until some free space is available. When a person does have myDrive space, they will be able to share files up to the value of their available space. Read more >>
