The easiest way to enter attendance data, grades, and student report information is to use a web browser. Simply point your browser to
Chrome and Safari are the preferred browsers.
Connecting to the SIS with Filemaker
When connecting Filemaker to the SIS from a school computer, look for the Launcher file in your dock. Don’t have it? You can download it here (requires a wissf.org Gsuite Google Drive login).
If you’re connecting from a computer without the launcher file, you need to add the WIS server to Filemaker’s Favorite Hosts. Go to FILE–>HOSTS and click the + button.
Once the Woodside Server is added as a favorite host, it will be readily available in the future when you open Filemaker.
Log in to the SIS using Gsuite
Starting in March 2019, you will log in to the Student Information System using your wissf.org Gsuite account. This means one less password to remember and enables more secure connections to the database.
When you are presented with the login window, do not enter your username/password in the top two boxes. Instead, click the SIGN IN WITH GOOGLE button near the bottom.
The Google login will open a web browser to authenticate your login.
Remember that you have to log in to your wissf.org Gsuite account, not your personal Google or Gmail account. If your wissf.org Gsuite account isn’t displayed in the login process, choose the “use another account.”
Your first SIS login through will require a few extra authorization windows. Subsequent logins will go faster. Look for options to save your answers to speed up future logins.
If you lose your Gsuite password you have numerous ways to reset it. It is important to plan ahead, however. Securing your account NOW keeps your data safe from hackers, and helps you get back in when you’re locked out.
To start, log in with a web browser: enter your username and click NEXT…
When you get to the password page, select Forgot Password to begin a series of methods to prove your identity.
If you have 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) enabled on your account (a very good idea) then you can use the Google Authenticator App to verify your identity.
