How can you create a new team? Go to the ‘My Teams’ page in Enriching Teachers. Select the ‘Create New Team’ button at the top right of the page
This takes you to a page that is set up the same way as the page you will see when editing a team.
On the right you will see users currently in the team. As this is a new team this should be empty, however by default you will be added to the team as the team lead. You are able to remove yourself or assign someone else as the team lead.
On the right you will see a section to add users to the team. But first, start by giving your new team a name.
Next, add some users to your team, either by scrolling through the list under ‘Add Users to Team’ and checking the box next to their names or searching for specific staff members. To search, type at least one letter in the staff member’s first name in the ‘Filter Users’ label. The more letters you type, the more specific the search results will be.
To view all staff members again, you can select ‘Show all.’ Once you find the staff member you want to add, check the box to the left of their name. If you wish to add all staff displayed in the list, check the box to the left of ‘Staffers.’ For example if you had two staffers visible, as in the picture above, checking the box next to ‘Staffers’ would add Abigail Cole and Isabella Perry to the team.
Once you have added staffers to your team, select a team lead or co-team leads if you would like. You do not need to assign a team lead in order to save your new team.
Also optional is adding students to your team, creating a Student Group for your team. When adding a new team, you wont have any students assigned to your team. In the ‘Users in This Team’ section, you will see a tab labelled ‘Students’ that currently has a ‘0’ next to it. When you add students, this is where you will see them.
To create a student group, in the Add Users to Team section, select the ‘Students’ tab. You can add students to your team in the same way you add staffers, by finding the students you want and checking the box next to their names.
If your school is using partners, you could also select this tab and add them in the same way.
To remove any user from your team, whether a student, staff member, or partner, simply click the trashcan icon next to their name in the ‘Users in this Team’ section.
When you are finished setting up your new team, be sure to click the Save Team button. If you refresh the page or navigate to any other page without saving, you will lose all information.
Clicking Save Team will take you back to the My Teams page, where you will be able to see your newly added team in the list. Teams are listed alphabetically so your new team will show up in the list accordingly.
That is how you can create a new team. In the next section, will explain how to manage your team goals.
