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 Create Base Group 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.
By clicking on the Actions 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.
