Carol has almost 3 years experience working with the support team and has come across every type of query you can imagine. She is an expert in all things VSware from timetables to term reports and everything in between. In this post, she discusses this week’s most popular support query.

Now it’s time to get to creating the accounts. This step by step guide shows you exactly how to do it:

- Creating Parental Access

- Decide what the parent can see

Once the option to ‘Allow Parental Access to Term Reports’ is ticked, you then just have to choose ‘Yes’ under the ‘Publish to Parents’ option in the exam settings. Parents are then ready to check out those exam results!

Schools can even choose a Parental Print Template which allows the parents to print off the reports at home if they wish, which in turn means no more expenses on stamps and paper.

We will have more insider info soon, so make sure to keep your eye firmly set on this blog.
