How can new staff be manually added to Purple Mash?
Adding a new staff member is easy.
- A school admin must login to the Administration section of your Purple Mash license.
- Click on Admin (the blue sprocket wheel in the upper-left menu).
- Choose "Manage users". This will take you to the Administration section (called 2Lasso) where you can manage all your pupils, staff, and classes. You can learn detailed user management by viewing our in-depth user management guide.
- Once inside the Administration section of Purple Mash, click on the Staff tab on the left.
- From there, you can Add a new staff member, edit an existing one, or delete any staff no longer required by your school.
- When you add a new staff member, you will need to input their Name and Email and create a username with which they will use to login.
- Give them the role of Teacher, or if you want them to have the same access to Purple Mash as you, the role of School Admin.
- Before Saving, you may wish to assign the new (or modified) staff member to any Classes (or Groups) you have already in place. Staff can only access the work of pupils for classes to which they are assigned.
- 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.
