SchoolPoint Dashboards- Managing and Editing
Managing Dashboards within SchoolPoint
When you previously logged in to SchoolPoint you would have used www.nameofschool.schoolpoint.co.nz/control as a staff member/ administrator- If you just had SchoolPoint.
As we are slowly combining the layout of SchoolPoint and SchoolBridge, you will now log in via nameofschool.bridge.school.nz. You will be taken to the SchoolBridge screen of icons regardless of having a subscription to SchoolBridge or not.
You will use an icon on the SchoolBridge dashboard which takes you through to SchoolPoint. Here you will see this screen of icons on the landing page and corresponding menu items down the left hand side. It will depend on your permissions as to which icons/ tiles you will be able to see on your SchoolPoint dashboard.
Reorder/ Personalise your SchoolPoint Dashboard Icons
Once you are on the landing/ home page, click up the top right hand side on your name, and then "My Account"
Here, you can choose your visual display, such as a pop out menu, or always show the left hand menu. To the right, is "Navigation", where you can drag and drop the order of your left side menu icons so the ones you use most often could be at the top of the left menu.
SchoolBridge Staff / Caregiver/ Student Dashboard
When you initially log in to the SchoolBridge Dashboard, you will go in via nameofschool.bridge.school.nz as a staff member/ administrator. As a full administrator, you will define what icons/ tiles staff/ caregivers and students see when they also access the dashboard the same way. If you are not a full admin, it will depend on your permissions as to what icons/ tiles you will be able to see on your dashboard.
Once logged in, as a full administrator, you can Click on "Manage Home Page" and edit the icons/tiles the Staff, Caregivers and Students can see and access.
Note: If you do not have a SchoolBridge subscription, the dashboard icons will be limited to SchoolPoint icons/ Tiles and subsequent dropdown within. If you do have SchoolBridge, the icons and links are more vast and varied- there are a lot more options which can be added.
Under the SchoolBridge Settings above (only accessible via full admin log in) you can control:
App Settings: whether to display the calendar on the app, or notices and news on the app. Choose how many notifications and events will display for each audience.
Appearance of SchoolBridge- your school colours/ logos and how they display (we will add these initially for you to choose from)
