If you have the "Organisation Super Admin" role for your school you will be able to manage a variety of other permissions for your staff from the Reception tab. You will also have access to edit and delete user records, although you should not need to use this as in most cases parents and students records will be maintained automatically by the sync with your Student Information System. If you would like to change your school's "Organisation Super Admin" users please contact us.

Editing Staff Permissions
- Click the Settings cog in the top right hand corner.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and then select the Staff Roles tab:
- From there, select which role you wish to allocate a staff member.
- When the staff role has been selected, a list of staff users who currently have that role will appear on the right-hand side of the screen. Click the blue 'Edit' tab to allocate more staff users this role.
- A pop-up box will appear on the screen like the one shown in the image below. The list on the right (Selected) shows all staff who already have this staff roll. To allocate another staff user to this role, click the green '' next to their name and they will move over to the 'selected column'. If your list of staff is long you can use the name box at the top to search for the person you are looking for.
You can also remove the staff user by clicking the red trash can icon which moves them back to the Available column.
When the correct staff have been selected click the green 'update' button to save your changes.
- Now the newly allocated staff user/s will be listed on the previous screen.
Please note, although you are able to view Super Admin Users, this role can only be applied to a staff member by SchoolsBuddy. To request a Super Admin role for a staff member, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
