AmridgeJack

ADFS: MCNY has been using ADFS for several years. The version upgrade to 9.X was not a huge problem. Largest issue was the lack of automatic account creation within 9.X for new users. We have a process in place to ensure new users get the proper roles.
Ryan Cushing
27:24
is Cashnet compatible with SS 9.x?
Adrian Smith
27:43
Cashnet is now compatible with SS 9.x.
AmridgeJack
28:04
@Adrian - thx!
Adrian Smith
28:17
MCNY ultimately decided to change providers and moved away from Cashnet instead of implementing the new compatible setup.
Jodi Bonewald
28:28
What other things are still missing from PCSS, coned? shared access for parents? other things? these are our concerns (going backwards with certain functionality).
Sean
29:38
FUS uses Flywire for SS payments
Aaron Kryger
31:17
FYI, 9.1.2 has a defect that prevents merging organizations.
Jason Stegman
32:20
Is anyone using New-net payments with SS 9.x?
AmridgeJack
32:39
How well did migration go with MigrateMembershipDatabase.bat?
Angela Iannelli
32:55
We use ACI Worldwide for SS payments. Has anyone experienced any issues with their services?
Jason Stegman
35:32
*Nel-Net payments
Kelly Quigley
35:33
Any issues with Great Plains with the 9.# upgraded versions. did anyone upgrade both at the same time?
AmridgeJack
35:51
Thanks!
Dynnise Littlefield
36:22
How are you all provisioning users and assigning roles?
Adrian Smith
36:34
Great Plains: We have upgraded GP twice since going live. Reasons were related to 1099-NEC and not the 9.X change.
Dynnise Littlefield
36:41
Has Shared Access been implemented and is anyone using it?
robinp
37:09
We are using Nelnet with the old connector and in the process of upgrading to the new Nelnet connector now
AmridgeJack
38:45
Does the MigrateMembershipDatabase.bat grab everything from existing SS DB?
coryb
38:46
We just completed the Nelnet implementation in SS9 test environment.

Hite NMMI

Any issues changing DB compatibility level to 120?
Mark Nilsson
40:22
Thanks
Ken Kogler

We use Azure AD as a SAML provider for other systems, but have not attempted it with Self Service yet.
Shea
40:29
What is the defect in 9.2 that has prevented adoption?
Donald D'Hooge
40:30
Has anyone setup the SQL backend with named instances and AlwaysOn configuration?
Dynnise Littlefield
41:11
sorry, lots of questions! Can we install on a 2019 SQL server version and set compatibility to 2016?
Jodi Bonewald
42:01
Is shared access for parents in 9.x PCSS available yet or on the horizon?
AmridgeJack
42:07
@Dynnise great question.
David Palmer
42:22
Shared access is available in 9.1.2
Carol Dandary
43:07

Angela Iannelli
45:06
We're using PC 8.8.5/SS 8.8.3 and just upgraded GP 2015 R2 to 2018.3 and a new SQL server 2017. No major issues. Looking forward to upgrading to 9 this Summer after doing a lot of testing. We're still setting up servers, and planning.
AmridgeJack

virtual desktop - 1 install
Angela Iannelli
47:04
We use ACI Worldwide for SS payments. Has anyone experienced any issues with their services after upgrading to 9.1.2?
Mary Donahoo
48:18
Yes, that's one of the concerns we have.
David Palmer
48:30
I've worked with other customers and ACI for version 9. For the payment provider function, there seems to be no issues.
Angela Iannelli
49:40
Great, thanks David. The new server will help us with the quirkiness we've been seeing when we switched to another domain last Summer.
coryb
54:01
Documentation was pretty great but lacked in the ADFS setup. David Palmer was great and provided us with additional documentation for that
coryb
55:15
Compiling Self Service source code was also challenging. But, again David helped out a bunch on that front and got us up and going.
Jim MacLain

take
Jodi Bonewald

01:01:23
Any complaints from users?
Hite NMMI
01:01:24
Who does not use SelfService for attendance?
Adrian Smith
01:01:53
MCNY uses both Self-Service and Moodle for attendance. Moodle attendance is brought over nightly.
Aaron Kryger
01:02:05
We don't, the two weeks of attendance that we track are recorded in our LMS.
Jodi Bonewald
01:02:15
we use moodle for attendance
PowerCampus Users Group
01:02:35
Barbara, we had some longtime faculty complain that 9 was a regression. However, it's the same group of people who regularly struggle with basic computer usage. They had memorized the old interface.
AmridgeJack
01:02:49
Great Session thanks for sharing!
coryb
01:02:52
We utilize a custom integration within Canvas that allows instructors to enter attendance directly into PC from Canvas.
coryb
01:03:15
Same for Mid/Final Grades. And attendance lists
robinp
