iPad Guides

 

Please note:

On an iPad you will be limited to some constraints that are imposed by the iOS operating system to our web interface.  This means you will not be able to upload a file through Safari on the iPad but you are able to save and download files within various applications that support WebDAV or download the file.  The download option will either open the file directly, prompt you to move it into a supported App, or let you know if there is no App to handle that file type.  The eBackpack viewer will still allow you to view most common file types.  Additionally, any files that you currently have uploaded to your account can be acted on inside of eBackpack (move, copy, submit, delete, rename, etc).  You can also do all of the administrative functions as well (add users, schools, classes) but you will not be able to use the import as that requires access to upload a file.  

Students can still submit files to teachers and teachers can also return files to students. 

 

** WebDAV is an optional feature that may be added to accounts as a component of our pc/mac integration option.
