In this article, you will learn how to add, edit, or remove user permissions for user accounts in Classroom. In order to edit a user's permission, you must be a Classroom Administrator.
Where to Start
Under the Administration tab, click User Accounts.
On the next page click the yellow pencil icon next for the user account that you would like to modify permissions for.
The Email field is the email address that the user will use to sign into Classroom.
The Title, First Name, and Last Name fields provide identifying information regarding the user.
The Alt Email field is for users who would like Classroom emails sent to a second email address. Please note that this address CANNOT be used to sign into Skedula. Most teachers will sign in with their @schools.nyc.gov address. Alt email is used as a secondary account only for notification purposes.
The Job Title field describes the user's position.
The Type of account limits various functions like access to the Administration tab and is also used for grouping features in which you can sort users by "Type". There are three types of accounts:
- Administrator - allows the user to manage the Classroom and PupilPath Portals and includes functions such as account creation, installing and running the Data Extractor, downloding data
- Teacher - allows a teacher full access to the classes that they are teaching and to the students enrolled in those classes. At a bare minimum, all classroom teachers must have the following access. If you wish to give a teacher or a staff member access to see the portfolio of every student in the school you need to make sure that the box "Access to All Student Portfolios" is checked.
- Staff - is for staff other than classroom teachers, such as Guidance Counselors, Secretaries, Deans, etc.
Scrolling down the page will display all of the different User Rights that you are able to modify. To add/delete a User Right simply check or uncheck the tiny box that corresponds to that user permission.
When done click Save Changes.
You also have the option of modifying multiple user accounts at the same time. This can be done by simply clicking the tiny box next to each user account that you would like to modify.
Next scroll to the bottom of the page and click With Selected and then choose the task that you would like to perform on the accounts that you have selected.
Finally on the User Accounts pop up menu you will see the list of users that you previously selected. Click the tiny box next to the 'right' that you would like to modify and then click Save Changes to complete the task.
