@HenrikHebeltoft We are working on connecting the News tool to the Notifications bell, which should give you a similar effect.

Fronter is in the process of deploying more hardware and services into production in our main hosting centre in Oslo, as a result we have exhausted our current published address range of 193.157.209.0/26 and need to extend it to the next octet 193.157.209.0/25. Can you please ensure your network teams implement these changes before Monday the 4th of August 2014 (2014-08-04) as we will be deploying a new integration server into production on this date.

Fronter's Public network information can be found here.

If you require further clarification of the above network changes and their impact please do not hesitate to contact your support channel.

Note: The new integration server will be the only service effected by this change at this stage so will only have an impact on currently active integrations where we pull data from a customer endpoint and they have firewall restrictions on this service. As this is Start Of Year time for most customers hosted from Oslo the integration framework will only be impacted by this when they re-activate integrations after the above date so just need to ensure that the changes have been implemented on firewalls before re-activating integrations after the 4th of August 2014.

Ephorus, the plagiarism prevention tool used in Fronter, is constantly improving its service. In order to do so, Ephorus will not be available on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of July. During that time no documents can be submitted.

From 21st of July the service will be back to normal. 

Curious about the Ephorus tool? See What is Ephorus and how do I get started with it?

We are coming up on a new start of year, and teachers will soon be preparing their rooms for the next term. Did you know that you can find templates in Fronter, to make this work easier for you?

Are you looking for a new school information room? Or a Buddhism room? Or a room about the Romans in London? You can find templates for this, and many other interesting topics, here.

Have you checked out our exemplar rooms? They are readily available when you activate a room, under the “Base on an exemplar room” option and customised for your country!

If you are a Nordic customer Fronter Nordic has created some great template rooms that you can get activated in your building. Get in touch with the Nordic team for more information about the Nordic template rooms.

Have a great start of year!
