Invite Multiple Educators To Join Your Centre App

For centres with multiple Educator's when you create an App, you invite Educators to join your centre's App. Each Educator will have their own login access. The Owner can view and monitor everything that each educator does as and when it happens, assign permissions for each educator depending on how much freedom you want them to have when using your App, limit educator access only to the children and parent in their rooms, etc.

To invite an Educator - Invite Educators setting is found under Settings in the sidebar of the App:

1) To invite educators, just enter their name, their contact email address, their role and their rooms if application.

2) When you send an invitation to the educators, the educator will receive an invitation code by email that they can use to join your App.

Each educator will access the App using their individual account. You can invite as many educators as you need and the subscription charges will be effective from the date of the invitation.

Educators will have their own profile and Appsessment automatically maintains their profile for you. This will help the owner and the administrators to keep track of all of their activities, documentation created by them, educator comments and more.

Category Tags - Used For Grouping, Searching and Managing All Your Documentation

Tags are essentially keywords that accurately represent your documentation. Tags will help you tremendously in grouping, easily searching and locating the documentation. A documentation can have multiple tags and tags will help you categorise and group the documentation based on their essence.

Appsessment will come with default category tags that you can use in your documentation. You can even create Custom Tags to use in your App, here's how:

1 - To create custom tags, go to the Category Tags link under the Settings menu in the sidebar of the Admin Panel.
2 - Type in the tag name inside the custom tag text box on that page and click on the Create button.
3 - You can even edit or delete your custom tags. Deleting the tags will not affect the documentation it is used in.

If you create Custom Templates in your Centre's App, you can add the default tags to your Template so when you create a document based on that template, the default tags are automatically populated.

Importance of Category Tags - Reports

Tags are important in Reports as they telling the App under what category the documentation falls under. Appsessment uses these tags to analyse and generate the report.

Tagging is simple and easy once you get used to it and it is a good habit to tag all documentation as you create them!
