Changing Logos and Colors on a Test Server

For your test server, you may want to change the color scheme as an indicator that you are using a test
server vs. using the production server. You can also change the displayed name from “PowerSchool” to
something else. This PDF documents how to do this. See also the "Sample SVG Files" posted below.



Sample SVG Files
These files are related to the "Changing Logos and Colors on a Test Server" above. These are sample SVG files for replacing the "PowerSchool" name logo with "PlaySchool". These are named "playschool" intentionally. For them to work on your server, they need to be renamed to:
/images/img/powerschool.svg
/images/img/powerschool-white.svg




Test Server Watermark
Adds a green "Monkey Wrench" background watermark to your test server. This is a plugin, install through System - System Settings - Plugin Management

Individual Discipline Summary (legacy - 2006, but still works)
Copied from PSUG Yahoo Groups National Files
An adaptation of a Reporting Engine Discipline report. It includes instructions on how to add a link to a PS screen so as to provide the studentid automatically. The result is a report showing only discipline logs within a user defined data range for the individual student. Included is the entry date, sub-type, Subject, Detail (Entry) and Consequence for each discipline log entry. Definitely provided "as is", your mileage may vary.


Teacher Assignments Display
We created this to provide a paperless means of communicating to teachers their future teaching assignments based on the data in PowerScheduler. Includes control school-by-school of whether or not to display the assignments and display custom messages for both enabled and disabled states. This is a plugin, use Plugin Management Configuration to install the zip. You'll find the settings under School - (Scheduling) - Preferences. Posted by Roger.
