Manage Menu
You can assign a Class Name, Class Date, Teacher or Classroom to your learner accounts (sub-accounts). This allows you to organize your students into groups and retrieve accounts and tracking lists for these groups individually.
To use this feature, you must first add a Class Name, Class Date, Teacher or Classroom to your account, using the links in the "Manage" drop-down menu in the black box. For example, to add a teacher, expand out the "Manage" category by clicking on the "+" sign, click on the "Teachers" link in the drop-down menu, then click "Add" in the Operations column and follow the on-screen directions to add a teacher's name to your account. (The Manager's name is optional). To delete a teacher's name you'll use the same "Teachers" hyperlink to display the Teacher's List, then click on "Remove" in the Operations column for that teacher. Follow the same procedures to add Class Names, Dates and Classrooms, using the appropriate link in the Manage drop-down menu.
Once you've added one or more Class Names, Class Dates, Teachers or Classroom tags to your Master/Admin Account, you'll need to assign the tag to your learner accounts. This can be done when you create the account. You can assign a tag to existing accounts using the links (or a batch operation) from the Account List display ("Retrieve-->Account List").
Please note that this is an optional feature; teachers, classes and classrooms do not need to be used.
