User AccountsAll existing users in Skedula have existing permissions. In this article I will go into detail on how to modify these settings for any user.
In order to change a users access, you must be a Skedula Administrator. Under the "Administration" tab click the "User Accounts" link.
To begin, lets go into detail of setting up a non existing Skedula user. Click the "Add New User" button in the top right hand corner of the page.
You will be shown the following screen in which you may add the basic information of the user.
The Email field will be the email address that the user will use to sign into Skedula
The Alt Email field is for users who would like Skedula emails sent to a second 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 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"
Typical grouping would be done as such:
Administrator - Principal, Assistant Principals
Teacher - Teachers (All users listed in STARS are defaulted this account type)
Staff - Guidance Counselors, Deans, Paraprofessionals, School Aides, CBO's
To grant a User Rights click the check box next to each permission as seen below
Once all permissions have been set accordingly, be sure to click the "Save Changes" button
You can use the Filter portion of the page to view which permission all users are assigned. This can be useful while modifying user access.
We also provide you with the option to set your filter by "Job Title"
Job titles can be changed by user. To do so they should go to the "Account" tab then "User Settings"
Remove access to a User Account
Let's say you recently had a teacher who no longer works within the school.
