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 login).
If you’re connecting with the Filemaker app from a computer without the launcher file, you need to add the WIS server to Filemaker’s Favorite Hosts. Launch the Filemaker app, 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
Your WIS Gsuite account gives you access to the Student Information System. There is not a separate login for the SIS. 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.
Lost Gsuite Passwords
If you lose your Gsuite password, you won’t be able to access email or the Student Information System. You have numerous ways to reset the Gsuite password any time you need to.
It is important to plan ahead to avoid delays if you’re locked out of your Gsuite account. Securing your account NOW keeps your data safe from hackers, and helps you quickly get back in if you ever get locked out, without having to wait.
To begin the password recovery process, begin the usual log in procedure with your 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.
Password Recovery & GSuite Account Security
Resetting your Gsuite password depends on you entering alternative contact points (your phone # and/or an external email adddress) in your Gsuite profile, and using the standard Google account recovery procedures below.
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. If you have the Gmail app on your phone, you may be given the option to simply answer a prompt within the Gmail app rather than entering a 6-digit code – very handy!
