What is the maximum number of groups and learners in a group?
- There is no limit to the number of groups you can create in your mentor dashboard
- There is no limit to the number of learners you can have in your group
- Learners can belong to multiple groups in your organisation
- Learners can also belong to groups in other organisations
Pinning Chosen Groups for Quick Access
Some mentors/teachers may end up with several groups or they could have the role of Mentor/Manager which gives them access to all of the organisation's groups. Groups are displayed alphabetically so rather than scroll to groups you access most, you can pin them to the top.
Sharing ownership of a Group with other mentors
Mentor group owners can invite other teachers/mentors in your organisation to share ownership of their group. This means that only one mentor needs to create the group and invite students to join.
Some use cases for this are when:
- Two or more teachers are working with a class
- You want to share your group with a reliever or a trainee teacher etc
- Form teachers share their group with their Year Level Dean.
Open your group on your mentor dashboard and follow these instructions:
Search or scroll for the mentor/teacher and click Add
***IMPORTANT - You will only view other mentors if they have already activated a mentor dashboard in your school or organisation.
You can share your group ownership with more than one teacher/mentor if needed
You can also transfer ownership of your group by first adding another mentor/teacher and then deleting yourself
Removing students from a group
- When you delete/remove a student from a group you are NOT deleting anything from their profile including Notes & To-dos. The only thing that they will lose access to is the group discussion.
- The student needs to be in at least one group to remain connected to your school/organisation. If the student ONLY belongs to your group that you are deleting them from, then they will be disconnected from your school/organisation.
To delete/remove a student just open the group and then click the "bin" icon next to their name:
