ALL SYSTEMS OPERATIONAL
Resolved for users experiencing issue with solution.
Issue: Basically, some students using Explorer 10 have shortcuts added to their computers so when students press
A, assignment comes up;
C for leaderboard;
F for badges.
One of the engineers investigated and reported: I found that there are few extensions that can be installed and when enabled, they assign a number/character to links on a web page. You can see it here:
Please review these and disable those shortcuts. After doing those, your students should not be directed to the dashboard page. There's nothing that we can do from our end to disable these settings.
A quick fix would be for your students to log in using Firefox, Chrome or another browser If they had another option, they'll will be able to do the activities without issue.
We performed some updates on Google SSO. The recent change prevented some new users from signing in with Google SSO and some old users were prompted to re-enter their credentials because they were no longer saved to their profiles. Our developers are working on this now and the issue should be fixed shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Some users are experiencing an issue with the Type F lessons, It appears that it affected any lesson that shows a student a new key.
Update: Engineers have placed a fix that will give those lessons a timeout of 10 seconds. If for some reason your account is affected the lesson will simply timeout and allow the student to progress to the main lessons. this issue does not impact any other area of the application. please inform support if you are experiencing any issues that have not been resolved.
Users may have experienced a slow or freezing user interface this morning. Typing Agent staff identified the issue and have made adjustments to ensure server stability.
Changes made: End of year account resets can be queued during high utilization times and performed that night.
This issue has been resolved.
Typing Agent staff discovered a potential error with the end of year reset function. To prevent any issues we have limited the functionality to single schools. District administrators can still perform the reset function by selecting a single school and select the option on the fly out menu. We are working on a resolution and expect one to be in place shortly.

Typing Agent engineers are investigating a possible compatibility issue with older Apple iPad not being able to open and run Typing Agent software. Engineers have confirmed that iPad from 2014 and newer are not affected. If you are experiencing this issue you are encouraged to open a support ticket and provide the following information:
Typing Agent staff are currently working on a capability update to accommodate older model iPads. Please note that any product not supported by the original manufacture will have limited support from Typing Agent. This is due to the security risk and compatibility issues older not updated devices can pose.
Support staff are investigating a possible issue with Scheduled testing. Reports are indicating when a school administrator issues a test that the test is going to the entire district and not just the school. Support staff are working to replicate the issue and request any school who experiences the issue please provide the following information:
Typing Agent staff have located and resolved the issue. Staff are still working on some fixes with issues regarding teachers seeing other schools in their district when viewing the progress of a scheduled test.
Support personnel have been informed that administrators are not able to create new Staff users in Typing Agent 5.
At this time CSV file uploads are unaffected and do allow the creation of new staff users. If you need assistance creating a new staff member please contact support.
An issue was found when a teacher or administrator deletes a student. The license usage would not reflect the deleted student. Support has implemented a temporary fix to allow a teacher or administrator to add new students. Typing Agent engineering teams are currently addressing this issue and hope to have it resolved shortly.
During the Winter break Typing Agent developers performed many updates. After users returned to the program we where made aware of a few issues:
1. When completing any world or scheduled test the screen would go white and not allow progression. Our engineers and support team identified and resolved the issue as of 11:00 AM PST 1-2-2019
2. Some progress form certain clients has been reported as lost. Support staff have found most occurrences of reported status lost was due to a bug fix. Support found a bug that allowed students to progress through lessons without meeting requirements. once the requirement issue was fixed anyone who progressed was taken back to the missing requirement for work. this appeared to users as lost progress. once a user completed the required lesson there progress was returned to normal.
UPDATE: as of 01-11-2019 the button has been added but a bug was discovered with it. When a student clicks on the practice button it replays the video instead of taking them to the K2 Mountain. The engineering team is working on a solution.
It has been brought to the attention of our support team that at the end of the K2 Mountain curriculum after the Yeti celebration users do not have any options to proceed back to the home screen or to the mountain. Our development team is currently working on the implementation of a button that will bring students back to the mountain for additional practice opportunities. Workaround: Please have your students use the bottom right "phone home" button to return to K2 Mountain to continue practicing. (92)
An issue with the print student ID cards button was found that caused the printed screen to appear blank.
