School administrators are able to create profiles for additional administrators, as well as enable administrator permissions for existing staff profiles. This is a helpful option to provide full access to all student, parent, staff, and billing information, as well as reporting.

Adding an Admin Profile

Any existing administrators are able to create additional admin profiles through the Staff tab on the web or on the app.

On the web:

  1. Log in to your brightwheel account on the web

  2. Open the Staff tab from the purple menu

  3. Click the +Add Staff button in the top right corner

  4. Enter in the administrator's name and email address

  5. Select the new administrator profile from the Staff list

  6. Click Edit in the Permissions section on the right side of the staff profile

  7. Select the Admin checkbox to allow admin permissions

Please Note: The Edit Student Information box will disappear once the Admin box is checked. Any user with admin access can edit student information.

 

Enable Admin Permissions for Existing Profiles

In addition to creating new admin profiles, existing school administrators can also enable admin access for existing staff members. Once these changes are saved, the new administrators will have access to all student, parent, room, staff, and billing information.

  1. Log in to your brightwheel account on the web

  2. Open the Staff tab from the purple menu

  3. Click to open the appropriate staff profile

  4. Click Edit in the Permissions section on the right side of the staff profile

  5. Select the Admin checkbox to allow admin permissions

The next time this staff member accesses their brightwheel account, they'll see the adjusted access.
