Common Error Messages
- If a teacher or student reports difficulty accessing via Clever, you can check your District Admin Dashboard to see if you can locate the user in one of your school subscriptions. If you don’t see the user, it may point to a data sharing problem with our BrainPOP Suite app.
- We recommend that Clever admins always share data by school rather than by rules or by section. This will ensure that every user in subscribing schools has access.
- Verify the appropriate apps are shared with the appropriate schools. If signing in with Clever works for one product (i.e. BrainPOP) but not another (i.e. BrainPOP Jr.), it’s possible the school doesn't subscribe to that specific product. To confirm product permissions for each school, you can you can check the District Admin Dashboard.
- We receive Clever updates nightly, but changes in the SIS can take up to 48 hours to be reflected on our side.
- BrainPOP does not yet support students in multiple schools. Each student can only be in one school, which is their primary school listed in Clever.
- Co-teachers can be rostered from Clever into BrainPOP; however, we can not support co-teachers set up in Clever at different subscribing schools.
- If you need to contact us for further assistance, please include the name, school association, and Clever ID for the user or period.
Common Error Messages
"Can't Sign In With Clever" when attempting to sign in
- Make sure that the teacher's school has a school subscription to BrainPOP with product access for the product they are attempting to log in to.
Check the District Admin Dashboard for product and site access.
- Confirm that the user's data is being shared with the BrainPOP Suite App
Teachers and students whose data is not shared with the BrainPOP Suite App will not be pulled in during the account provisioning process and have their account created. Accounts can take up to 48 hours after appearing in Clever to appear on the BrainPOP side.
- Check that this user is shared with the Instant Login product apps pushed out for their school.
User data must also be shared with the corresponding SSO apps pushed out at the school level so that this is visible on their dashboard and will allow them to launch into BrainPOP.
- Make sure the sharing rules are set up to allow users from the school to have access
When a school is not included in the district's sharing rules in Clever, users won't be able to access their accounts upon launching the instant login app.
"Uh oh! BrainPOP does not support Clever SSO for district admins" message
Ways to troubleshoot this message:
Our integration currently supports users designated as teachers, staff or students in Clever that are associated with a school. Please contact us for help setting up a manual log in for District administrators.
"You'll need to join a class before you can login. Ask your teacher!"
This typically means that the student’s account has uploaded to our site, but isn’t part of a class yet. A student must be rostered into at least one class for them to be able to log in. Make sure there are classes listed for the student in Clever. If classes are listed and the message still appears, contact us to request a manual re-sync.
