Network Incident Identified

January 21, 2017

As of 9:30 pm UTC, our Operations team noticed some performance degradation on ManageBac similar to our previous incident on January 9th.

All hands are on deck as we address this issue on two fronts. Firstly, we have escalated the issue with our network provider, who are actively working on a fix. In addition, we’re implementing a work-around to independently bypass the problematic parts of the network while they work to resolve the main problem.

In the meantime, most users will still be able to access their ManageBac accounts normally, but some may notice slower speeds or a system time out.

Please follow our twitter @ManageBac for real-time updates.

[Update 00:50 am UTC] We’re now back up and running at full speed! We followed up with our data-centre provider and escalated the issue with their team, which resolved the network degradation. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience!

An important update has been deployed to the ToK PPD / PPF, EE/CS and EE/PPF forms on ManageBac, effective January 15, 2017.

We have aligned the forms on ManageBac to the IB templates so they are now directly editable. To view the new forms, please navigate to a student’s ToK or EE worksheet. For further reference, please view our tutorial on Generating ToK and EE Planning & Progress Forms.

[IMPORTANT NOTE]: If you have already exported forms from ManageBac, you will need to re-export them again from ManageBac. Forms exported from ManageBac before 15 January will not be accepted.
