See here for common changes that you might encounter. Some changes particularly relevant to this document are described below.
- Staff accounts for JumpRope now only have one active email address. This address is used as a staff member’s login username and their current contact address. There is no longer a need for a preferred email address or multiple usernames. In the event of a change in email address simply edit the staff user’s Email field.
- Connected accounts (one teacher, more than one school) can now be managed locally without direct support from JumpRope. Create a staff account once and then select the schools/sites that they should have access to along with the level of access they should have.
- By default the list view of staff accounts includes all schools and all active accounts. Filter the view by active status or by school site.
