Is there a way to lock down ipads & android devices, where users are only limited to specific apps or settings?
There is a POS software I am just becoming familiar with called NCR Silver. that works with iPad & Android devices & apparently employees have figured out that if you're late, you can change the time on the device & then punch in & apparently NCR has no fix for this, or so I am told.

Cannot play certain music on iPad.   "Item not available"   This item cannot be played.
I'm running a Groupwise 6.5.7 email system on Novell Netware 6.5 Support Pack Revision 08
I suspect corruption of the eDir caused by an Ipad running GW Mail app.
Everyone can work fine, login to Webmail, connect mobile devices via POP3 or IMAP access except for one user.

This user can login fine using the Windows Groupwise 6.5.7 client.
When I try and login to Webmail using the same username and password as for the Groupwise client it fails with "Please login again. You may have typed your name or password incorrectly. Remember that passwords are case sensitive." and the Webmail monitor displays Login failed: jdupl
If I input the incorrect password on purpose I get the same failure in the browser window but the Webmail monitor now displays "Login failed: User jdupl supplied invalid password. Login rejected: Password is incorrect.  Login failed: jdupl". So the Webmail does detect when the password is valid or not but it will not allow this
user to login.
When I login with my user peterw it successful, as it is for the other 200 users in the post offices.

Fast Fields and GoFormz alternative.  We are in the process of looking into alternative applications for our department.  Right now we are using Fast Fields, but we need a better alternative.  We were looking into GoFormz but would like to try out better alternatives.  
1. Ease of use so that our developers and users can pick it up quickly.
2. Works for Android, IPad or IPhone.
3. Work Form easy to develop and deploy.
4. Work flow to pass work back and forth among users and workers.
-- Send out work. Maybe a checkbox trigger or alternative.
-- Work received by worker.  Maybe a checkbox that triggers an email worker has received work.
-- Work completed by worker. Email work has been completed.

My iPad mini is slow opening apps and it’s getting frustrating.  When purchased it wasn’t slow rather it was fast.  This iPad mini i think is the second model that came out, its model ME276E/A.  When I googled it it says it’s an iPad min 2 series.

How can I make this device return to be fast?  (Note, from 16gb capacity, it has 3gb available, it’s version IOS 11.2.5, 16 apps, 90 songs, 1 photo)
I am looking for a WordPress plugin for forms that will allow the user to:

1. Fill in miscellaneous fields that I put on the form.
2. Sign the form using his iPad.
3. Attach photos that he takes from his iPad.
4. Submit the form with the image of his signature and his photos attached to an email.


would allow WordPress admin users to download all data from the form in a certain date range into a CSV file (including the attachments).

It looks like Gravity Forms might be able to do that, but I am unsure if I would get the images with the CSV download.

Helping a friend that has mobility problems.

They have an HP OfficeJet 3830 (relatively new All in one printer).  They want to scan 8 1/2 x 11 pages and have them accessible on their ipad for viewing. I am most familiar with Dropbox.

A couple ways I came up with, but not the best - the first because of limited mobility problems, the 2nd because there's several steps and more likely something stops working?

1) the dropbox app on ipad lets you take pictures / scans of papers and makes PDFs.  But again, with the mobility issues, this would be too much for them.

2) set up a computer with the HP software and dropbox running on it.  They scan from the printer, it goes to the laptop. The folder that the scans go to would also be the dropbox folder, the files go up to the cloud, then back down to the ipad.  They do have a 'spare' laptop, but that would have to stay on all the time / on the LAN with the printer.  Doable, but a nuisance to have a PC dedicated just for this and inevitably, witih patches, reboots, etc.  something in the process will break at some point... am I jaded or a realist <g>?

Are there other ideas?  Looking for simple (in process and for mobility issues) and relatively low cost.

Are there other printers or even this one with scan to cloud capabilities?  IS there a way to scan from HP all in one to an ipad directly?

How can I fast forward within MP3 files on an iPhone X?

I listen to MP3 files that are around an hour long and sometimes want to rewind or fast forward several seconds or several minutes within the MP3 files while listening to these files using the iPhone music app.

How can this be done?
How do I sync playlists across PC, iPad and iPhone?
I have a user who has Comcast phone service with a land line number.  Someone sent a text message to that land line number and the text message appeared on his daughters iMessages on her iPad.  Not sure how this could happen.  Can an Apple ID setup or Comcast setup somehow be configured to route message from a landline to iMessage?

My iPhone doesn’t sync with cloud (see pix below) yet my PC and iPad syncs with no problem.

No sync
How can we fix this?
I have an ipad 4 (so it is old) and I have forgotten my 4 digit pin. I have not been on it in 3 + years.
I know the password to my itunes account but cannot remember my id.
Is there anything that I can do?

I do not have the original PC that this was setup with so I am at a loss.
I would be fine to reset it to factory defaults, but cannot see anyway how to do that.

The worst part is I think I know the 4 digits that are used but cannot remember what order they are in and it just keeps adding timeout amounts.

I work in a hospital. We use the Stratus iPad app for interpretation.  We have a guest internet circuit that these iPads are on.  The circuit was recently upgraded from 35 Mbps to 100 Mbps. No other changes that i know of. Around that time the Stratus app stopped connecting. There is an asa 5505 on this circuit, but only default config is enabled.

 I took the ipad home and the app worked fine on my home wifi.  I ahve contacted the vendor and our ISP. Both claim it must be a firewall issue, but nothing has changed.  Any ideas?
All of a sudden, no sound from youtube on iPad.

How do I get it back?

Google searches produce garbage, no real info.

Hi all,

We utilize Exchange 2013 and are trying to setup an iPad as a replacement for a laptop in the field. However, the one hurdle we are facing is how the user can reset their password when it expires through an iPad. We do not want them locked out when they are on the road and only have the iPad.

Using Outlook 2013 with Office365. Large groups of email are missing. In the inbox sorted by date descending there a re big gaps of mail missing. Last month had quite a bit missing, more missing from the month before, then large gaps of many months with no email at all, then some from a year ago, then some from a couple years ago. Did the restore deleted items from the inbox and that restored a lot (mostly recent from the last couple of months)

Also receive this same O365 account to an Iphone and an Ipad.

I suspect it might be IOS device since I had a similar problem a while ago but in that case you could watch the email go away.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You
What apps or methods will allow me to project what is playing on my iPhone X onto my iPad?
Hi all,
I have a scenario where I need to be able to generate a .PDF notice from a native iOS application when the iPad is in the flight mode i.e. zero connectivity (offline mode)
The client will be printing this .PDF notice via a mobile printer and serving it to the client immediately.
This .PDF notice will be uploaded later when the iPad comes online.

Please provide me the best possible solution with example code snippets.
