Setting the Default Password

At any time (and especially the first time you create new users), use the Set starting password feature. The default password is password, which is insecure. Each time you change the password, newly created users will be given the password you have set. Passwords of existing users will not be changed.

Group default password dialog

If you can't recall the password and need to see it, it will be visible in your downloaded roster.

Account Creation and Removal

To add an account, click the plus sign button below the list of accounts, and fill out the requested information in the dialog. These accounts will have full access to the software features. Note that you should develop an account naming scheme that will be helpful to you yet maintain privacy for your students. More concretely, avoid using student names; instead, consider including a school identifier and other information such as time of year, class period, and/or academic subject.

Account creation dialog

To remove an account, check the associated box and click the minus sign button at the bottom of the list.
