  1. Each section can be expanded and collapsed using the arrow in the top right corner of that section.
  2. The first section shows the groups assigned to the user who is currently signed in, as well as that user’s favorited groups.
  3. You can sort favorited groups by their name or by their owner, but the user’s groups will always be listed first.
  4. A group from any section can be added to the “My Groups/Favorites” section by selecting the heart (star). Remove favorited groups by clicking the heart (star) again.
    • My Groups/Favorites are the only groups available in your Staff App.
    • A section named “Synced Groups” will appear second in schools that sync groups using a 3rd party service. If you are the owner of a synced group, it will automatically appear in your favorites.
  5. “Grade Level Groups” are automatically created when students are imported.
  6. “All User Groups” shows all groups created in the school. Search to find the group that you need.
  7. “Inactive Groups” are the groups that have been marked “inactive.” These are groups in which the “Active” checkbox has been unchecked in settings of that group.

Whether you organize students into “Houses” (think Harry Potter) or want to award points to sports teams, you can make a group to represent any collection of students. Students can exist in many groups, though they only have one account where their points are deposited.

Create a New Group

To create a new group, from the left-side “Main Menu” choose “Groups”, then click the plus sign. This will create a group assigned to the current user.

The staff member who owns the group will have his or her name noted with the group, for example, “1st Period – 7th Grade ELA,” “Golf Team,” or “4th Grade”. Use the “Edit Owners” button to add additional owners to the group.
