How do I Add / Edit / Remove Parents and Students?

Updated on August 16th, 2017 by

The Class Directory provides you with one location to manage your class memberships, print invitations to join ClassTag, add students and parents to your class directory, invite or remove teachers from your class, and even easily email parents. 

Creating Student List and Inviting Parents

If you are looking to set up your class directory and just getting started with ClassTag, please review this post

Connected Parents

A family is considered connected if at least one parent has a valid contact email or phone number and we have confirmed successful delivery of communications to that contact. 

Please Note!

Once parents are invited to ClassTag with valid contact information, they receive all communications before creating the actual account on ClassTag and can accept the invite to join ClassTag at any time by following the links in communications they receive. This ensures no parent is left out of communication even if they haven't taken action to accept the invitation. 

Invalid Contact Information / Exclamation Point

If you see an exclamation point in your directory, it means that some students don't have any parents with contact information or the contact information for some of the parents is not valid. 

In your directory we will highlight the problem areas and you will be able to find suggested steps to ensure the parent can receive all the information. 

Correcting Invalid Contact Information

To correct invalid contacts, please click on the pencil sign and edit the account. 

However, in some cases when parent might have created an account already you might see an error message "has already been taken". In order to invite this parent, please click on 'Remove' red button in the bottom left  to remove the wrong account and create a new account to invite a parent with the correct email information. 

Parents who Created Accounts / Accepted Invitations

You can identify parents who accepted invitations to join ClassTag in your directory. These parents will not have an option to 'Resend' invitation under their name as it was already accepted. 

Adding / Removing Students and Parents

To make any changes to your Class Directory, you need to click 'Edit Directory'. 

Once you clicked 'Edit Directory', all options for editing become visible to you:

  • Remove a student by clicking on the trash can next to student's photo. Please note that removing a student will remove all of the family from the class. 
  • Edit a student by clicking on student's name.
  • Remove a parent by clicking on the pencil edit icon next to parent's information. 
  • Modify parent contacts by clicking on the pencil edit icon next to parent's information. 
  • Add a parent by clicking on the circle with "+" sign 
  • Add a student go to the bottom of the directory page and click "+ Add a Student"

Please note!

Only you as a teacher are able to see all the parents' emails.   When your parents sign up, they have the option of making their email addresses visible to other parents or not. This way their determine their privacy settings themselves. 

Parents can invite other parents or caregivers to their family on ClassTag, making it easier to ensure everyone has access even if you don't have emails or phone numbers for all family members.
