Depending on your attachment to certain user groups, the Interface automatically adapts to your security level. In this article, we explain the different features available to administrators. Other users can access the Student Portal, Guardian Portal, or the Teacher portal which outlines their respective views.
User Interface (UI)
There are two levels of Administrator views in MySchool, Normal and Super. In most cases, Administrators have access to the normal portal. Once you have started with MySchool, we will introduce new functions and features, and assist Admins to become fully competent to control their schools data.
Certain screen shots may contain options that you do not currently have access to, Please contact MSM support to discuss access features.
1. User dashboard
This section can be adapted depending on the communication structure used internally in your school. If you wish to use a full directory with contact details, then we can enable the Directory functionality. Transferring files from user to user is made easy with the My files feature. Scheduling and booking appointments/events can be accessed via these menus as well.
2. Menu headers
These are adapted to the user group, and in certain cases the country. Contact our support team to configure these for your school. In Malta, we include the DQSE menu header, whereas in Canada, this would be TRAX/1701. if your school does not require modules like Finance or Donations then we can hide these from the menu headers. Within the menu headers, you will find functions, and advanced options. Clicking on Advanced options will provide further functionality related to the menu header.
