Base groups are a group of students that share certain common criteria, like the year and the class. According to these criteria, an example of a group could be as follows: 9th grade A. You can search base groups by their name anytime and from the list you can edit or delete a base group.
Creating a base group:
You only have to press on the + button and choose a name and a colour to identify the base group.
Importing students and pictures:
Once the base group has been created, if you click on the group you can add or import students. By pressing on the + button, the following options will appear to add students and their pictures to the base group:
- Manually (in a complete or in a quick way)
- From an existent group
- From an Excel file
- From an official platform
- Import students’ pictures
- Import group pictures (face recognition)
You can search students with different criteria anytime and from the list you can edit or delete students.
Massive student editing:
By clicking on the Edit button you can massively edit all students’ data. The edition window has a spreadsheet format that allows you to massively copy-paste data to make editing easier.
NOTE: This option is also available from the group’s menu in Additio App’s web version.
Assigning groups to teachers:
If you click on the “Assign” button you can create groups from the base group and select the teacher in charge of the subject. Once the teacher has been selected, a dialogue will pop up, in which you can configure the group: name, colour, start and end date, and even the timetable the teacher has with this group.
