User Groups give SchoolStatus users access to Student Groups.
Any SchoolStatus user can be given access to students by making the User part of a User Group, and then adding students to a Student Group, and giving the Users access to the Students. Any administrator with the Group Admin module can create a User Group.
To create a group of students, go to our Create a Student Group page.
From your menu, select the Groups utility, and click "New" to start a Group.
Name your User Group, and add a detailed description. (Tip: Choose a group name that is similar to the Student Group you'll be creating, so that they will be easy to find if you need to modify both.)
Choose the Group Type as "User" and then populate members in your group by typing names in the "Add Members" search box. You'll see them on the right. Then, click "Save" when you are done.
*We automatically add the creator of the User Group to the group and your district's SPOC (single person of contact) will have access to edit any group created for your district as well.
Edit a Student Group
The group creator can edit any group. Search for your group by title, right under where you clicked "New" to create the group. Click the group you want, and then click the Edit button. To add members, select names as described above. To remove members, click the trash can to the right of the name to remove it. Update to save your changes.
Now that you have a User Group, check out this article now to Create a Student Group.
