Custom user accounts on the My sCool Server

Can I have custom user logins instead of the default student and teacher login accounts?

This is particularly useful at the beginning of the school year or when the My sCool Server is being deployed for the first time or when mass accounts need to be created for conducting examinations.

We can help you do that if you provide us the details prior to shipping of your MSS appliance.  Or you can also create the same yourself via the user management module accessible to the administrator.

Recommended scheme for creating student user-ids on the My sCool Server is available herein.
