Advantages of using these tools

The advantages of using the IDP and UDI fall in to two categories.

Student / Staff advantages

  • one username and password for multiple services
  • no more forgetting passwords
  • increased use of services
  • easy access to all your school's services via a portal page

Administration / Management advantages

  • technicians don't waste (as much) time on password issues
  • you only have to manage user directory rather than multiple password sources
  • if you use the UDI tool and keep your SMS up to date then your directory will be updated to reflect changes in your roll and staff changes
  • if you use the UDI tool users that leave the school will automatically removed from the directory which disables them from accessing web / cloud based services
