Manage user groups

This article is for Administrators and Teachers

Students, teachers and parents can only communicate directly if they are within the same class.

But there are situations where a wider communication between users is necessary, such as:

  • school fete organisation between administrators, parents and students

  • subject discussions between teachers

  • book groups, etc.

Administrators can select specific users and add them to a User Group to allow this kind of communication to take place.

Parents can only see details of students they are granted privileges to view.
