Myschool has many features which are designed to facilitate physical resource management. Locker management with it's simple set up enables admins to control school equipment and it's usage.
How to access
In the default setup, the feature is available in Administer menu header, under the Advanced options, look for the entry called Locker management.
Setting up the lockers
Open the function, and start creating a list of lockers available. These will be filtered by Building, if you have set up the different buildings in Room management.
Adding New lockers, requires a manual entry and save for each locker. Let us know if you have a large list, we can assess whether the data can be imported directly.
Allocating the lockers
MySchool locker system is designed to attribute the lockers to the Students, so that Administrators have an up to date list in case of Emergency, or Maintenance. Once the list of lockers has been created, go to the student profile page, and open the Other tab.
The three fields allow you to allocate lockers to students, add a combination, or key code, and add a description in case of damage or particularity. Click on the folder icon, and the edit locker window will appear.
Choose the Building from the drop down list, if you want to have a list of only available lockers then leave the check box ticked. Click on a free locker to assign to the student record. Update to leave and return to the student profile. To set up buildings, then check out the room management article.
When allocating large numbers of lockers to the student population, then use the quick navigation tools located in the top right hand corner of the User profile. You can move from one student record to the next within the class group. This is not available in Edit mode.
