How to manually add staff

Updated by Matt Besant

To add a new staff account to Purple Mash, follow the steps below:

An admin account on Purple Mash is required to add or modify user accounts.
  1. Click on your name at the top right of the screen.
  2. Choose Admin Settings, then Manage Users.
  3. Click on the Staff tab on the left.
  4. From here, you can add a new staff account, edit an existing one, or delete any staff accounts no longer required by your school.
  5. When you add a new staff member, you will need to input their Name, Email address and create a Username with which they will use to login.
  6. Staff can be given a Role of Teacher, or if you want them to have the same access to Purple Mash as you, the role of School Admin.
  7. Before saving, you should assign the staff account to any classes or groups they require access to. Staff can only access the classes/groups that they are asssigned to.
  8. Click Save.

For new staff members, they will receive a Password Reset email at the email address you input above. If you wish to print out a login card for new staff, it will not show their password for security reasons.
