How can I give access details to a student?

December 19, 2018 Karol Wojtyła

When you add a student to the system, they are automatically assigned a login and password to the Academic Module. There are a number of  ways to provide these details to the student.

Printing:

Go to School Admin ModuleStudents and select the student. On the General tab on the right-hand side of the screen, you will find “Print access details” button, plus it is also in the drop-down menu. If you created an account for the student’s parent, these access details will also be printed.

Emailing to a Student:

Before you can email you will need to enter your email settings in your account. Click here to learn more.

You can also send the student’s access details in an email. Obviously, you must have entered the e-mail address on the student’s and/or student’s parent’s card. Go to School Admin ModuleStudents and select the student. On the General tab on the right-hand side of the screen, there is a “Send access details” button.

Send access details buttonAfter clicking the button, a new window will appear. Here you can enter any additional information that you want to include in the email. A message with access details has predetermined content, but you can simply add something of your own.

To confirm sending the email (irrespective of whether you add additional message or not), click on the Save and Close button. After the message is sent, the button will change its colour from blue to green (you will need to refresh the page to see this change), so that you know which students have been sent access details.

You can also send emails with access details to all students in a particular group. Go to School Admin ModuleGroups and select the group. On the General tab on the right-hand side of the screen, click on the Send access details to all students” button.

Token values

These allow you to personalise each email. Each recipient will get an email address to them and their own log in details.

To send a message and access details to any user: teacher, student, parent etc., you only need to use [first name], [last name], [login] and [password]. The token values with parent in them are if you want to send access details of the parent to the child.

Here is an example:
