This section covers features available only to users who have PICS hosted on Pellcomp’s servers.
Using our hosting servers differs from using a locally installed version of PICS in various ways, including the following:
- You will access PICS through our Hosting Portal rather than opening it from your desktop. We have two separate Hosting Environments for Skills and DWP programmes respectively.
- As well as your /wiki/spaces/POH/pages/277151889, you will need Hosting Accounts for your users to log in to the hosting portal. You will need to set up these accounts with Multi-Factor Authentication.
- Any files you upload or download will go through the File Drop section of the hosting portal, rather than directly through local storage.
- Software updates and backups will be done for you rather than manually.
