Every classroom is different, and brightwheel knows that preferences vary by teacher. That's why we have empowered administrators and staff to set their Room Settings based on the preferences of those assigned to that room.

Room Settings Options

Here's a brief overview of each option available when managing a Room's settings. Unless specified, administrators and staff will be able to see these options:

  • Sort by Last Name: By default, students are sorted by their first name; this option allows you to sort them by their last name

  • Show Check-In Status: Students who are not checked in will show dulled version of their profile picture, while those who are checked in will be more vibrant and have a checkmark

  • Sort by Check-In Status: This moves all checked-in students to the top of the room list

  • Student to Staff Ratio: Set the desired student-to-staff ratio to be alerted when these ratios are exceeded
    Please Note: Only Administrators & Managers will see this option

  • Room Capacity: Set the maximum number of students that should be checked into the room at any given time
    Please Note: Only Administrators & Managers will see this option

  • Student Status Filters: This feature allows you to filter the students that appear in your room list based on the status set in their student profile
