Logging into the Administrator Portal

There are two parts to the SchoolDude CrisisManager application: theAdministrator Portal and the Mobile App. Only users that write or publish plans will need access to the Administrator Portal. All other users will simply download the published plans to their smartphones using the CrisisManager mobile app.


If you select the Authorized User List security option for your plan, you will need to create a separate login for the mobile app in addition to the login for the admin portal. This only applies to plans with an Authorized User List. You can use the same login information for both accounts.

How to Log In

       Bright Idea:

The login screen for the CrisisManager Administrator Portal is completely separate from the login for the rest of your SchoolDude applications. For security purposes, the password requirements are also more stringent, so you will need to create a new password to use for this application.

Initial Login/Setting Password

  • When you are added as a user to CrisisManager, you will receive an email from with the subject line:SchoolDude CrisisManager - Set Up Password.
  • Click on the link provided in the email and set your password. The password must meet the following requirements:
    • Between 8 and 40 characters in length.
    • Have at least one Uppercase character.
    • Have at least one Lowercase character.
    • Have at least one Numeric character.
