If you get an email with a block asking you to “click here” – BEWARE!

This particular email supposedly came from AT&T, and was delivered to several students recently. Notice that line at the bottom, which says it came from “Veterans United Home Mortgage Reviews” and “Intuit Credit Karma” – not exactly the same at AT&T!

DO NOT CLICK – just delete it. If you aren’t sure if it is legit or not, PLEASE check with MDS Tech. Don’t be shy!

Notability and Google Drive – the 2023 edition

It is CRITICAL that you have your Notability notes backing up to Drive, AND in the correct format. This lets you retrieve your Notes using ANY internet enabled device, and the Notes are backed up as you create each one.

Another advantage: If you delete a note from your iPad, it does NOT get deleted from Drive.

Here’s how to set this up:

BEFORE switching to a Managed AppleID

We are [slowly] migrating to using managed AppleIDs. BEFORE you switch away from your old one:

  • Fire up Notability
  • Switch to Settings
  • Select iCloud
  • Select “Keep on my iPad”
  • Switch to Autobackup.
  • Make ABSOLUTELY certain your files are backing up to Google Drive
    • If they aren’t, set that up RIGHT NOW
  • Swipe out of Notability
  • Settings –> Sign into your Managed AppleID.

This will keep you from losing all of your Notability notes when you switch.
