Start experiencing Clever Portal 2

April 3, 2019 Kirstin Miller

On February 14, 2019 we announced new powerful features in Clever Portal 2. We’re excited to share that everything is ready for you, your students, teachers, and staff to enjoy!

Some features are available for students, teachers, and staff already, and they’ll see others as district administrators enable them in their Clever dashboard.

We can’t wait to hear how these updates will make accessing learning software even easier, empower teachers to manage online instruction, save valuable time at the district level, and at the end of the day, improve student learning outcomes.

Below you’ll find Help Center articles for each feature with visuals and step-by-step instructions.

  • Connect with even more applications via SAML. Reach out to your district success representative to get started.
  • Easily manage school admin and district staff data with more robust admin controls and functionality. Just like students and teachers, staff members are now visible in sync error reports, search within your dashboard, and sync data holds.
  • Transfer even more roster data through Clever with our expanded data schema. You can begin sending data to Clever then connect with your applications to discuss timing on sharing it with them.
  • Simplify the setup of textbooks by directly mapping your content through Clever. This feature is available for any district to try. Please contact us at to get started.
  • Access the portal as a specific user to help troubleshoot any issues.

By the 2019-20 school year you’ll also see:

  • Gradual iOS improvements including SSO into any application via iPhone and iPad.
  • An easier way to get staff data into Clever via a direct sync from Active Directory. To join beta testing now, please let us know by selecting the “beta” button on this page.
