Every new brightwheel school is created with three Demo students. These Demo students (Alex, Mia, and Russ) are very valuable for administrators to see how brightwheel works and to test different features. Any activity logged for these students will not appear in reporting or other aggregated data.
Demo students are not intended to be converted into active students in your program. Brightwheel has intentionally limited the editing functionality of these students so that their names and profile pictures cannot be changed.

How to Use Demo Students
All three Demo students will appear in the Demo room when you create your school account. This is a perfect "sandbox" to get to know brightwheel, and experiment with new features. Whether your school is new to brightwheel or you are on-boarding a new teacher, Demo students are a perfect tool for learning.
For the most part, Demo students function the exact same way any student profile would. Staff can use these students to follow along with the staff training materials to help get them familiar with the app and experiment with their day-to-day actions.
We do not encourage adding additional students to the Demo Room or creating your own demo students. These particular profiles are treated differently in our database, adding your own student could have negative results in your reporting down the road.
Limit Demo Student Visibility
If you no longer wish for your staff members to see demo students throughout their day, you can remove this from their visibility by removing the Demo Room assignment from their staff profile. This will disable their ability to access the Demo Room or make any changes/log activities for any Demo students.
