In this article you will learn how to:
Create a Department
You school may have departments that have been imported into Enriching Students from your SIS. They may have staff already assigned to them. However, you may need or want to create your own departments within Enriching Students, and assign staff members to them. To start:
- Go to Admin, then Manage Departments. On this page select the Create Department button.
- On the Create Department page, type the department name in the Add New Department field. Then, click Save. Your new department will be created with 0 users.
You will need to add users to you newly created department by using the Manage Staff page. On the Manage Staff page, edit the staffer you want to add to the department by selecting the department under their Course Info.
On the Manage Departments page, you will see a list of all of your school's departments with the Department name, the current Users in Department, and the Active status. If the department is active you will see a green check mark, if it's inactive you will see a gray 'X'.
Edit and Delete Departments
Editing a Department
To edit a department, select the Actions button and then Edit Department, next to that department.
On the Edit Department page, you can change the department name. If the department is currently inactive, you can mark is as active. If it is active, you can only de-activate it if it has 0 users.
Deleting a Department
In many cases, you won't be able to delete a department. If a department has users in it, or if it's your homeroom/homebase department, you will not be able to delete it. You will only see an option to edit it.
You can delete a department as long as it's not the homebase, and there are currently no staffers assigned to it. To delete a department, select Actions and then Delete Department.
You will need to confirm that you want to delete this department by selecting the Delete Department button. If you don't want to delete the department, select the 'X' at the top right of the screen.
