Set Members and Permissions

Users with appropriate permissions can add members to a group (district, school, class, sport, club, or activity), remove members from a group, and change the permissions for members in a group in the Edline website. To update the members of a particular group, you must have super user or site coordinator permissions enabled for the district, school, class, or other group.

  1. From the menu bar, select Tools, and then select Manage Group (District, School, Class, Sport, Activity) to access the Modify Group page.
  2. From the Group Management area, click Members and Permissions to view the Group Member List page.

    When you are on the Modify School or Modify District page, you will see the Manage Users button instead of Members and Permissions.

  3. If you know the user identification code of the person to add, type the code in the Admin System User ID box and click Add.
