I have installed this today and the report is showing blank for students I know have incidents from the previous school year. Maybe it has to do with security group settings at our school? How do I change that if that may be the problem?

Tony Duritsch

You need go to Group Security and set the permissions for the Incident Types you want the group to be able to view.

Is there a way to easily cross-reference attendance and incidents? Specifically those that have attendance codes (i.e. ISS and OSS)? Might that be something that could be worked into an update for this report or the attendance report?

Great suggestion. We will add this to the PSCB enhancement request list.

Any way to add the reporters, from the incident builder, to the summary?

Kent Sweigart

PSCB Development has no plans to add reporter to the summary list. That information is available by clicking an individual incident ID.

Makes sense... thanks Rob.

Kent Sweigart

I installed the plugin and can see the Incident link under Administration but cannot see the Student Incident Summary link.....any suggestions?


Confirm that the plugin is enabled.

If the link still does not appear, that would indicate that you have a previously customized more2.html file in CPM. This could be preventing the link from appearing.

Does the security for this plugin work with PS Roles? I set up an Incident Management security group and created an Incident Management role in PowerSchool. I installed the plugin, assigned group and page permissions to allow the Incident Management security group/role full access to the page. As Administrator I can view the page. End users who have been assigned the Role of Incident Management can view the page but can't view the details unless I change their Group to Incident Management. Thank you for any insight you can provide.

Does this plug-in work with PowerSchool version 21.4? I have deleted the plug-in and reinstalled and still not seeing it as an option in our Custom Reports. I have also checked the security settings to verify the access to Incident Management. It was working with our previous versions.

The PSCB - Customization (Student Incidents Summary) is a student page customization. After installing and enabling the plugin a "Incidents Summary" link will appear on the left navigation menu for each student.

The Incident Details View and Print option only works if the user has District security settings assigned.

Is there anyway you could limit the summary to only display the incident behaviors and actions that associated with the selected student? Currently, it is displaying for all of the student associated with that incident which is really confusing.

The summary is designed to display all behaviors and actions assigned to the students that are tied to the incident.

Currently they can not be filtered to display only those for the student be viewed.

Good morning. We have been using this plug in for a while, and are very impressed. A question came up at a counseling meeting today - can we see incident time on this summary? Right now, we need to use the incident management screens to see time, but having it here would be ideal when tracking student behavior (we are a special education setting, and sometimes knowing the time frame helps us narrow down contributing factors of student behavior we are trying to shape). Our counselors typically print this screen, having the time data appear would make things easier as they would only need to print one report. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

When I select a school- with incidents this year- under incident search, I am getting no results.
This happens with certain high schools and with the district.

Some schools have results. I need this data for all schools and the district. the settings are the same start and end date

Please advise!

For some reason, some students Incidents Summary is not working. It's random students, but we need this information when a student transfers out of our district to send to their new district. The Incidents Count works, but the Summary won't. Please advise! Thanks!

This issue is being reviewed and the customization will be updated where necessary.

Thank you so much! Will I be notified when and if the issue is resolved?

If a staff account only has admin access to one school, they are getting error messages when trying to view and print. Once I add the district to the admin access, they are both viewable. I can access both Print and View from my PS admin account. The staff group does have access to both the Incident Type and the Incident Student Screen.

On the incidents summary page, when clicking the View button, an error message pops up stating "An error was detected contacting the server. Please contact customer support if this continues to occur." and you can click ok and the pop up closes. When Print is clicked, I am taken to a new page with the Unathorized Data Access Detected message stating "An attempt has been made to access a record that your account does not have access to. This activity has been logged."

I've been playing with security settings. I have a back up account that I set up as a principal with one school and I'm blocked. Once I added district, everything showed up. Also, I tried editing Page Permissions, but that did not help.

Also, I installed the PSCB DEV – Custom Base Resources and the PSCB DEV – Incidents Summary and the same thing happened with the new report.

Is the report supposed to be set up so only District can access?
