Our servers will be down for maintenance on Saturday, March 8 starting at 2pm HKT (GMT+8). The total duration of the maintenance will be two hours, but actual ManageBac service downtime is anticipated to last less than 30 minutes.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused. Please enjoy your weekend!
Recording Orals for IAs have been affected as the new version of Chrome was just released. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
We are currently working on a long term solution, but we recommend temporarily disabling the ‘SSL 256-bit encryption’ when you are recording the Orals (in the new version of Chrome) and turning it back on once you have finished.
To do this, please go to Settings > General and unselect the ‘SSL 256-bit encryption’.
There are three available options that define Student Profile Access Permissions for Teachers & Advisors: Read & Edit, Read-only, and Not access. These options can be set in the Access Permissions & Security section under Settings > General.
Read & Edit
This option allows all Teachers & Advisors to read and edit the following profiles and worksheets for all students:
- Diploma Plan Worksheets
- CAS Worksheets
- EE Worksheets
- ToK Worksheets
- Student Profiles
- C&S Worksheets
- Personal Project Worksheets
This option allows all Teachers & Advisors to read but not edit the above profiles and worksheets for all students, with the following exceptions:
- A student’s Homeroom Advisor can Edit the student’s Diploma Plan Worksheet
- A student’s CAS Advisor can Edit the student’s CAS Worksheet
- A student’s EE Supervisor can Edit the student’s EE Worksheet
- A student’s ToK Teacher can Edit the student’s ToK Worksheet
- A student’s C&S Advisor can Edit the student’s C&S Worksheet
- A student’s Personal Project Supervisor can Edit the student’s Personal Project Worksheet
This option allows Teachers & Advisors to neither read nor edit student profiles and worksheets, though the same exceptions as for Read-only still apply (e.g. a student’s CAS advisor can still Edit the student’s CAS Worksheet).

We’ve recently added a Double-sided Printing option to the Reports templates.
Enabling this option will add a blank page to the end of all student reports with an odd number of pages, allowing you to easily print double-sided reports in bulk.
This week, we added a Student ID column to the Import Parents CSV template (Users > Import Parents). Administrators now have the option to enter either Student ID or Student E-mail in the corresponding column when importing parents in bulk.
As always, if you need assistance with your import, you can contact our support team for help!
