Supply Teachers and CMIS/Eportal
We are currently having trouble with supply teachers disclosing the logins for both the supply network account, and more importantly the supply Eportal login !!!
When this happens the password spreads through the kids like wildfire and it is impossible to track down which supply leaked it as we have upto 10 supply teachers....
In Eportal you can only have 1x Supply (locked down) account
We could setup say 10x teacher accounts named Supply01 - Supply10 but these teacher accounts cannot be locked down.
The built in Supply account is pretty well locked down, but the teacher accounts are not, allowing all the students (and teachers) personal details...
Just wondered how other schools delt with Supply teachers..
Serco just say "setup several teacher accounts for them" but if these supply teachers havent the brain to keep a login confidential then i dont want to be trusted with my home phone number/address !!!!

Needs to be handled as a management issue - if staff, supply or otherwise, are disclosing confidential access details - appropriate action needs to be taken, and them reported to the agency.

We use the higher level supply account in the admin controller, we recently had a password leak and changed it straightaway.
i really would stay clear of giving them "teacher" style access unless you can lock it down to minimal privileges

but, how do i know which supply leaked the passwords? as they all share one account and sometimes we have several supplys in a day
We also use locked down supply account in the admin controller, I have just been off the phone to Serco and there can only be one account like this....
Do all your supplys share the account?
They are sending the "enhancment team" my request for either multiple high level supply accounts, or the ability to restrict teacher type eportal acounts....
but for now this wont help !
