We are always making changes to SpEd Forms’ products to make it easier to create and fill out the forms you need. Last year, we began the rollout of SpEd Forms v 2.0, the updated look for SpEd Forms’ software. The organization and content is largely the same, but pages are being updated one by one to look more contemporary and user-friendly.
SpEd Forms v 2.0 is now available as an option for users to enable in “Educator Setup” under “Profile.” Here are our current recommendations for who should start using SpEd Forms 2.0:
- Administrators should train new users on SpEd Forms v 2.0 to avoid hassle later.
- Power users should use SpEd Forms v 2.0 so they can help their district decide when the right time is to switch versions.
- MA Forms providers should start using SpEd Forms v 2.0 now because the new activity log interface is much easier to use and is formatted to work on small mobile devices.
Why should I switch over to Version 2.0?
SpEd Forms 2.0 not only has a fresh, modern look, but also new functionalities and enhancements that don’t exist in v 1.0.
For example, SpEd Forms v 2.0 has improved mobile compatibility, meaning users can do tasks like attendance and enrollment using their mobile device from the classroom or home.
Now is a great time to start exploring v 2.0 and getting familiar with its functionalities, especially Directors who may be introducing SpEd Forms to new staff in coming years.
How are you improving SpEd Forms v 2.0?
We’re continuing to make updates and improvements to SpEd Forms v 2.0 in response to user feedback. We’ve also improved our content according to Web Accessibility Content Guidelines so that users with disabilities can better access the program.
How can I learn more about using SpEd Forms v 2.0?
Over the past year, we have produced these resources to guide you through using SpEd Forms v 2.0.
If you have any feedback about how the new version is working for you, we’d love to hear it! Please reach out to us with questions/comments through the support request system.
Please note: It is not required to move over to SpEd Forms v 2.0 immediately. We anticipate SpEd Forms v 1.0 to remain available for several years so that our users can slowly make the adjustment.
