  3. Rearrange these groups using “Change Order.”
  4. A group from any section can be added to the “My Groups/Favorites” section by selecting the star. Remove favorited groups by clicking the 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.

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

  1. To create a new group, from the left-side “Main Menu” choose “Groups”, then click the plus group button. This will create a group assigned to the current user.
  2. Be descriptive in naming groups, but you don’t need to include a teacher or staff name with it. 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.
