Bulk Assign Permissions to Teachers

Is there a way to bulk-assign permissions to teachers by default?

 

We'd like to allow all Teachers to shadow students; is there a way to do this so all teachers can shadow without assigning permisisons one-by-one?

 

I found this article, but it only covers the assigning of permisisons. It does not mention how to assign the permissions to everyone.

Re: Bulk Assign Permissions to Teachers

Thank you for participating in the PowerSchool Community!

You should be able to assign shadowing rights to a single teacher, a class, or a school.  The article below should walk through the steps of assigning shadowing rights within PowerSchool Learning.

 

How Can I Use Shadowing to Let Someone See USers' Classes or Grades?

Re: Bulk Assign Permissions to Teachers

@jamiem7 That was indeed the article I was reading.

 

The part that I was hoping to work around was this:

For security reasons, you can only assign Shadow permissions to one user at a time. 

I am looking for a method for issuing shadow permission in bulk. That is to say: I need to give shadow permissions to every teacher in every school. At last count that's around 150 teachers in our MS and HS. That's a lot of clicking. 

 

It also means that every new teacher must be granted the shadow permission. That's a lot more clicking and yet another step in our new-teacher procedure. 

 

Is it possible to issue this permission to everyone at once? 

 

Because there is no way to create limited administrators, I can't even delegate this task out. Only super admins can do this task as far as I can tell which leaves it up to me and, uh, me.

Re: Bulk Assign Permissions to Teachers

I apologize for my misunderstanding of your question!

 

The permission to shadow students must be assigned to one user at a time.  When assigning the shadowing permission, you can choose to give a user the ability to shadow one student, an entire class, or an entire school.  

I have requested the PowerSchool Learning Product Team to review the ability to add a feature that will allow administrators within PowerSchool Learning to assign the shadowing ability to the teacher role or multiple teachers at a time.
