What is Fronter 19?
We have given Fronter a major upgrade. We’re calling this new version launched on April 4, 2019, Fronter 19. It combines the best of both the itslearning and Fronter platforms. It is loaded with amazing features and time-saving tools that teachers will love, such as cloud integrations, planner, 360° reports and library.
Timeline: April 4, 2019
Fronter 19 launched (for teachers and administrators). We recommend that teachers start transferring content from this date as the content transfer can take time. Use the Content Import Tool to do this.
This is also a good opportunity to do some housekeeping, and we recommend that you only transfer content that you really need. Transferring over unnecessary content could drastically slow down the process. You have until Dec 31, 2019 to transfer over your content.
Timeline: July 28, 2019
All Fronter users will be automatically upgraded to Fronter 19 on July 28, 2019. The current version of Fronter becomes Read-Only. This means you will no longer be able to work on the current version of Fronter. Any new work will have to be done on Fronter 19. However, you can continue to see all your assessments and transfer content over to Fronter 19 until Dec 31, 2019.
Timeline: Dec 31, 2019
You will no longer be able to access the current version of Fronter.
