    Hello. When I log in to the Teacher Dashboard and go to Mobile Manager, I see my MBC groups, but not my MDM groups. Does this need to be configured somehow ?

    • Gwen Barnes says:

      Hi Laurel,

      The view of MM within the Teacher Dashboard appears to be linked to your MBC account, so it may be different from what you see if you log directly into next.lsmdm.com. I’ll check with development to determine if this is the intended behavior.

      Edit: OK, development confirms that the Teacher Dashboard shows only a “teacher” view of things. An Admin Dashboard may be coming later, but for now you would need to log directly into next.lsmdm.com for any administration functions.

        All of our accounts come from My Big Campus which is going away? So how do we do account creation using the Teacher Dashboard? The admin dashboard may be coming later? Very confusing. The MDM requires My Big Campus for accounts. When are we supposed to move off of My Big Campus to the Dashboard product?

        • Gwen Barnes says:

          We’ll be maintaining a standalone version of the MBC database for Mobile Manager and Teacher Dashboard users, and will provide management tools for admins at that time.

          Teacher Dashboard is available now to non-student users with an MBC login. Our MBC Transition FAQ has more information on migration and end of life dates for My Big Campus: http://www.lightspeedsystems.com/mbc-transition-faq/

            How will groups get formed in MDM for management of that part of it? We were waiting until the end of this school year to fully integrate PowerSchool with MBC. Now I assume there has to be some integration of PSL and MDM?
