Managing staff and teachers in brightwheel is easy and intuitive! Staff can easily be added to brightwheel with or without an email address. Once an email address has been added and the invites sent out, the staff will receive instructions on how to finish setting up their new account!
Some centers may only want staff to have permission to interact with certain rooms which can be edited easily on the web or mobile app.
