This article is for Thread's TEAM platform only. The "Manage Students" menu is featured, but alternate navigation methods to accomplish the same tasks are also included. 

The new platform with individual logins includes a people management module that streamlines this activity. Click here to learn more about migration to the new platform.

Locate the Manage Students Menu

To locate the "Manage Students" menu:

  1. Find the Manage Students link in the upper left corner of most Thread screens. Tap it to view all the students you are currently working with (top group) and more students you can obtain access to work with (second group), as pictured below.
  2. Tap a student’s name to see a menu of actions.
  3. Follow the instructions below for desired action.

Actions in the Manage Students Menu

View a student’s list of programs, view or edit a student profile, and remove or add your access to a student using the "Manage Students" menu. Alternate navigation methods are also included.

To add a new student profile:

  1. Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.
  2. Tap (Instructor’s name) Students+ to add a new student profile (in the example above, tap Sue’s Students+). Please note, if all students are already working with you, this link will be a plus sign (+).
  3. Complete the form with student details.

  2. Select a student from the drop-down menu.

Add or Remove Access to a Student

To remove your access to a student:

  1. Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.
    - Remove access: If you have been working with a student and want to stop or pause, tap the student’s name and choose Remove Access. The student will move under "(Instructor’s) Students +" until you want to work with them again. 
    - Add Access: Tap a student’s name you are not currently working with, and choose Access Student. The student will move to your active group.

Note: If you attempt to remove access to a student who has no other instructors set up in Thread, this warning appears: “You are (Student’s) only current instructor. You will no longer be able to view (Student’s) data. To undo this action, you must contact Thread Support.” Here you can choose to Cancel or Deactivate. To avoid globally deactivating that student in Thread, select Cancel until another instructor has access.

Alternate method:

  1. Tap the book icon in the top right corner.
  2. Scroll down the left column to select Access Existing Students.
  3. Tap each student’s name to add or remove access, as indicated by a check mark.

Deactivate a Student from the Organization

If a student leaves the organization entirely, they can be deactivated. Each instructor must follow steps to remove their access to the student as described above, under the section, "Add or Remove Access to a Student."

After the last instructor has removed their access to the student, that student is deactivated with this warning: “You are (Student’s) only current instructor. You will no longer be able to view (Student’s) data. To undo this action, you must contact Thread Support.” Here you can choose to "Cancel" or "Deactivate."

For a list of instructors working with the student, visit the reports portal at app.threadlearning.com. There users can login with their usual Thread credentials to view reports for the team. The first screen is a list of students, and under each student’s name is a list of their instructors. 

Once a student is completely deactivated, their reports will remain available on the reports portal.  

View or Edit a Student Profile

To view or edit a student profile:

  1. Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.
  2. Select a student you are working with, tap their name, and choose View Profile.
  3. If changes are made in the profile, scroll down and tap Save Student to save changes and return to the student list. Or, tap the link (upper left) to back out without making changes.

Alternate method:

  1. Select a student from the drop-down list on "Private," "Charts," or "Public" tabs.
  2. Tap the student’s profile image to access their profile.
