Note : The groups are sorted alphabetically.
Tip : It will be easier to manage or assign students if the groups are based on the organization’s actual class plan.

 

Setting group management staff
“Teacher in charge” is an additional role assigned to class management staff. The role grants authority to modify student information. It’s an optional setting but allows non-student management staff to easily modify student information. The teacher in charge of Group1 (primary group) has the authority to modify the information of the students assigned in all of its secondary groups and the teacher in charge of Group2 (secondary group) has the authority to modify the information of only that group.

 

Deleting a group

  • If Group1 (primary group) is deleted, Group2 (secondary group) is also deleted and the students assigned to group2 move to an “Unassigned” status under the group.
  • In case of deleting Group2, all the assigned students move to Group1 > Unassigned.
