What Student app options can I manage from my iOS device settings?

From your iOS device settings, you can manage access settings, open external tools in Safari, and reset your cache.

Enabling the option to open external tools in Safari will launch the Safari app to view external tools. If this option is not enabled, external tools will open in webview inside the Student app. You may want to enable this option if you are experiencing difficulties with viewing external tools.

Resetting your cache will clear all information on your device that is specific to the app, including login details, some annotated documents, and app settings. You may want to use a cache reset if you experience errors when logging in to the app. Because a cache reset will remove app information from your device, you may want to try resetting your password or uninstalling the app first.

After enabling the Reset Cache on Next Launch option, you must force close and re-launch the Student app for your cache to reset.
