- Select the Share With menu to choose who this field group should be available to enter data for students
- Select one or more of the abilities (2) the chosen users can do: Can View Report Card (allows users to view the report card and data if they have access to the student) and/or Can Print Report Card (allows users to print report cards, or be given the ability to download PDF if they have access to the student)
- To confirm sharing permissions, select Share (3)
Return to the Report Card List (5) or continue to Edit Report Cards (4).
NOTE: Some thing look into is creating Permission Groups or the ability to make a group of users who you will regularly share to, other than the options provided int he Share With menu. Visit our Sharing Help Manual for more details and on sharing practices.
Report Cards need to be shared with users as a final step of accessing the report card and field groups for students. Under the Shared With (1) column, you can review if and with whom the Report Cards have been shared with:
- If the Shared With section is left blank, the report card has not been shared and will not be available for report card entry, printing, or viewing
- If the Shared With section has users (3), the report card has been shared and will be available for report card entry, printing, or viewing
If there are no users present in the Shared With section, select Name of the Report Card (2)>Edit Teacher Permissions to update and add shared users
If there are users present in the Shared With section, select the Current Users (3) to update and add shared users
