Using iPad in the Enterprise; close but challenges......

Getting closer to being able to use iPad in the Enterprise.  Two challenges so far; sorting functions in Numbers Application not existent? Work around? and the second issue, tracking changes in a word document or Pages document when using Pages on iPad?
Can't analyze data without sorting feature.  Can't review legal or contracts without seeing who changed what?  Any workarounds besides use my Mac Air?
Thanks

  • I have an ipad I used with a computer which's now broken. I bought a new Macbook Pro and signed into iTunes with my usual Apple id and pw. I connected my ipad to the new Macbook but it won't back up my photos or Apps from the ipad to the new macbook. Help

    What do you mean " back up my photos or Apps"?
    The photo sync is one way - computer to ipad.
    You can transfer itunes purchases.  Without syncing:  File>Transfer Purchases
    Copy everything from your backup copy of your old computer to your new one.

  • I use Hotmail on my iPad. Yesterday I changed my password on the account using my home PC. Now the ipad requests the new password but when I enter it I get Password Incorrct and it asks to enter it again.

    I use Hotmail on my iPad. Yesterday I changed my password on the account using my home PC. Now the ipad requests the new password but when I enter it I get Password Incorrct and it asks to enter it again. The sticky part is that no matter what app I bring up including settings, the password request pop up appears and the app cant' be used

    I was going to say either that or to remove the email from your email account settings(on ipad) and put it back on. Happens everytime im forced to change my work email password. I need to delete the account and add it again for it to accept the new password.

  • IPad on the Enterprise network

    Hello All -
    I am looking to get some more information on the iPad in the enterprise. We are currently using Cisco wireless running a corporate SSID using WPA+WPA2 with AES and 802.1X.
    Is anyone running iPad's in the 802.1X enterprise? We use a Device CA for all of our devices, is it possible to use this on the iPad or do you have to use client CA?
    I am using the iPad configuration utility to try and configure my test iPad, but it doesn't seem to work like I need it to. I get to a certain point and it wants username and password. I do not want a user to have to login, so this would lead me to believe client CA needs to be used and not Device CA.
    Can anyone help me out?

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow the on-screen directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.  You WILL lose all of your data (game scores, etc,) but, for the most part, you can redownload apps and music without be charged again.  Also, if you have IOS-7, read this.

  • I'm trying to sync my ipad to the itunes library - but I get an error message saying I Tunes Library full.  What can I do?

    I have an Ipad 2. I am trying to sync my ipad to the itunes library, but I get an error message - saying the itunes library is full.  How can that be? I've deleted lots from the library to see if that would help - but it still states I am about 25gb short.  Can anyone help what to do?

    Could any of the music have been sourced on an external USB drive or a network drive? In iTunes, go to one of the songs that won't sync. Bring up the info page, and look at the location of that song on the disk. Does that file and path exist? That could be your problem, especially if they were on a USB drive you forgot about.

  • I have an ipad with the ios7 update, but I forgot my restrictions passcode. And i can't restore because my "find my ipod" is on. But i also can't do anything because i don't have an icloud for this device. What can i do?!!

    I have an ipad with the ios7 update, but I forgot my restrictions passcode.And when I go and click restore I can't restore because the "findmyiphone" is on and I can't do anything about it since i can't get in my ipad. I can't do anything on icloud.com either because I did not put my device on there. What can I do??

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
    iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen                         
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.

  • How can I log into my new (used) Ipad if the previous owner has the only log in information?  I purchased it through Glyde and have no information on the seller.

    How can I activate my new (used) Ipad if the previous owner has the only log in information?  I purchased it through Glyde and have no information on the seller.

    What you've run into is the activation lock. Previous owners are supposed to wipe their devices, and to do that they have to enter their apple ID's. If yours wasn't wiped then it was a careless owner, or the dark side is that whomever sold it, it wasn't theirs to sell.
    Regardless, what Deggie says is your only recourse. Get your money back or own an unusable brick.

    Check the console app to see if there are any error messages. I had one app showing an issue (Pet Hotel) the error was (truncated):
    ERROR: Restore message response: 102 rename error: File name too long (63) at path "/var/mobile/Library/SafeHarbor/com.pocketgems.tappethotel/Container/Documents/ savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHis tory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGa meHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/sa vedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHisto ry/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGame History/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/save dGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory /savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHi story/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedG ameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/s avedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHistory/savedGameHist ory/savedGameHistory/1313349538-pocket_gems_crash_report.txt" (MBErrorDomain/102)
    I manually snyc'ed that particular app and then re-ran the restore and am now the proud owner of a working iphone. Not sure it is the same problem or app but looking in the console was the key!

  • TS3274 I purchesed a new Ipad Air on the 23rd Jan, I have been travelling so not given it much use compared wit the old one but I noticed the battery was running down even though it was in sleep mode. Lat night it was on 58% charge, this morning i had a l

    I have a new Ipad Air and have noticed everytime I open the screen the charge has reduced. over night it dropped from 58% to below 10 with a low battery warning.
    The screen was asleep, cellular switched off, Bluetooth on for the keyboard. all setting infact the same as my last model which performed excellently.
    Anyone know why its losing its charge so quickly. it also sems very slow to recharge also, in one hr its gained a 12% charge.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W or 12W (5W on Mini) USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (2.5W, most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.

    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.

    In rare instances when using the Camera Connection Kit, you may notice that iPad does not charge after using the Camera Connection Kit. Disconnecting and reconnecting the iPad from the charger will resolve this issue.

  • When I close Firefox, the window closes but the Firefox.exe process and Plug-in Container remain running in the background and have to be shut down using Windows Task Manager.

    This happens frequently. Something in Firefox continues to run even when the program is closed. The process has to be stopped before I can open Firefox again.

    Thanks. Closing with File/Exit instead of the X closes Firefox properly. AT LAST! A solution!

  • Personal iPads in the enterprise - keeping work/personal apps separate

    Hi All,
    I work in IT for a school district.  Recently, we got a grant for iPad training.  As part of that training, every teacher that attended the classes was given an iPad.  The problem is, that because of the way the grant was structured, the iPads ended up belonging to the teachers personally instead of belonging to the school district.  Since all these teachers now own their own iPads, we do not want to spend the money to buy them a second "work" iPad.
    I am trying to come up with a solution that allows those teachers to use their own iPads in our school environment.  Specifically, I am looking for a way to be able to purchase needed iPad apps with school funds, install them on the users' personal ipads, but prevent the user from backing up/syncing those apps with their home Mac/PC.
    The best idea we have come up with so far is to create a generic Apple ID for each teacher, such as "schoolname-01", "schoolname-02", etc.  The school's IT department would then be the only ones who would have the passwords for those accounts.  The IT department would then download and install the school owned apps on the teachers' personal iPads using one of the generic "schoolname-xx" accounts.  The theory is that the iPad registers and stores the Apple ID used to purchase each app, so we will be able to tell what apps are bought with school money and what apps are bought by the teacher for personal use.
    Obviously, this is not an ideal solution, but we haven't been able to come up with a better one.  The biggest question we have is this:  each of these personal iPads is going to be sync'd with the teacher's home Mac/PC.  Since the home Mac/PC will not be authorized for the generic "schoolnamexx" Apple ID that was used to install the school apps,  will that mean that only the teacher's personal apps will be backed up when they sync with iTunes, or will iTunes back up every app, regaurdless of what Apple ID was used to purchase it?
    Also, since an iPad can only sync with one Mac/PC, how can we back up the apps purchased with school funds?  Theoretically, we can re-download them from the app store, but only so long as they are still available for sale.
    I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has had success integrating personal iPads into a work environment.

    Hi gyrhead,
    Thanks for the information.  I understand that the teachers will not be able to transfer app purchases from the school Apple ID to their personal Apple ID.  The concern we have is this:  what do we do when a teacher with a personal iPad with school software on it leaves the district?  I know we can re-download the software purchased with the school Apple ID onto a new iPad, but how do we get the school software off the teachers iPad?
    If a teacher leaves under bad circumstances, there is not much hope that we will be able to remove the software from their iPad.  If their is a solution to remotely wipe apps installed under a specific Apple ID I would love to know about it.
    However, if a teacher leaves and it is an amicable parting, we are hoping that the teacher will allow us to remove the school software from their iPad.  However, even if we remove the software from the iPad, couldn't the teacher just restore it from their home Mac/PC?  If the teacher syncs his/her iPad to their home computer, will it back up just the apps purchased under their personal Apple ID or will it also back up the apps purchased under the school Apple ID as well?  If it is the latter, then I don't see how we could prevent the teacher from reinstalling the school apps, even after we remove them from the iPad.
    As long as the school can still install the apps it purchased on a new iPad, that last issue is not a huge concern for me.  However, the upper management/legal guys want to know the answer to this one.
