Welcome to School Manager 2021-014!
We continue to introduce improvements to School Manager by giving you quicker access to help documentation. We have also renamed some of Classwize’s configuration items within School Manager.
New Features & Improvements
Knowledge Drawer integration
We have made it easier for you to access Help pages by embedding links to documentation within School Manager. Access our feature and and how-to guides by clicking the Help button at the top of the interface, and the knowledge drawer will appear on the side.
The knowledge drawer opens with document categories and you can also use the Search feature to instantly locate the most relevant articles.
Renamed Classwize configuration items within School Manager
We have given several configuration elements of the School Manager application that control Classwize functionalities a new name.
These elements have been renamed to better clarify their use, and when you navigate to Configuration > Classwize, you will notice that:
- “Lock” has been renamed to “Pause Internet”
- "Message Class" has been renamed to "Class Announcement (one-way)"
- "Policies" has been renamed to "Classwize Rules"
- “Open tab” has been renamed to “Open site”
- “Close tab” has been renamed to “Close tab” (Chromebook only)
Teacher sign-in should only display teachers
We have fixed an issue where the list of teachers who have signed in to the application includes non-teachers. This correction now only allows teacher sign-ins to be displayed on the list.
