This lesson will guide you through setting up a preferred name and gender for students. Illuminate can now display the preferred name on local records (transcripts, rosters, etc.), while still preserving their legal name and gender for state reporting.
Where to Start
Note: Only users who you want to be able to view and/or modify a student's legal name and gender should have these permissions.
In order for you to see those fields on the demographic details page for a student, those fields need to be mapped to the appropriate demographic layout. Click to learn more about customizing the student demographics page.
Once those fields are mapped onto the custom layout, you will be able to edit the student's preferred name and gender.
1. The student's preferred name and gender will be inputted in these fields.
2. The student's legal name and gender will be inputted in these fields.
