As an admin, you'll want to refer to the configuration page to set many of your school's preferences for using the software. We'll break down each section of this page, and it's options.
The first thing that you'll see is your school's account information. This includes your ftp information that is needed for automated file import. You'll also find your import key, which is needed for data import, and your school's license information, as to how many licenses for the software were purchased and how many are currently being used.
Block Dates Settings
With the checkboxes here, you can select if only Admins are able to block dates, and if your school requires that a reason is provided when a user blocks dates.
Each student in the application is assigned a graduation year. Here, you can set the graduation year range for students.
Most schools give their flex time a name unique to their school. Type in the label here to set your school's flex time name.
Student Email Settings
By checking this box, you enable comments on a students schedule to be visible when the student is emailed their schedule. Left unchecked, their emailed schedule will not display comments.
Some school do not allow teachers to mark students as having cut class, instead they assign this task to admins. Check this box to hide the 'Cut' attendance type value from teachers when taking attendance.
Student Appointment Editor Settings
If students are enabled to self schedule, checking this box will also allow them to reschedule themselves when they are scheduled into their homeroom, something they are otherwise unable to do.
Prebooking allows you to schedule students in advance to their homeroom on a specific day or days of the week. When you initially upload students, or add a new student, here you can set what day or days of the week, if any, you want them to be scheduled to their homeroom.
Import Grade Settings
If your school uses the automated import grade feature, this is where settings for the import can be found. First, enter an email address, or addresses separated by a semicolon, of users who will be notified when the process has run, whether it has been successful or failed.
Next, choose the grade type. Does your school use number score or letter grades?
Finally, you can set a 'grade warning.' This is the grade that your school begins marking as a 'struggling' grade.
A student with a grade at this level or below in any of their courses will display with that course in the 'Struggling Students' box on the dashboard. In addition, the course with this grade will be highlighted in yellow in the students 'Current Grades' box on their profile and the schedule details page.
