Add Users to a Group

Normally your school super user will upload data files to Edline that automatically populate classes, which are a special type of group, although there may be certain circumstances when a teacher may need to add users to the class themselves. Coaches, department heads, and other school leaders managing group pages will add or remove members themselves.

Having members associated with group pages enhances communication. It makes it much easier for members to find the group page because a link to the page will automatically appear under their My Edline menu when they have been added as a member to a group. Having users in a group also makes it easier for the group super user to communicate with the group because the members appear automatically in their email list and everything added on their group calendar automatically appears on the member’s personal combined calendar.

How to Add a User to a Group

  1. Open the class or other group webpage where you need to add a user.
  2. From the menu bar, select Tools, and then select Manage Group to access the Modify Group page.
