AT this time I am having an issue of not being able to add students to Roll Groups, I have uploaded students to the system and I can see them generally, but I cannot seem to add them to the particular Roll Groups although the Roll Groups are already created. i need help
Hi icttech. Students can be added to roll groups when enroling them in the current school year. You can find this option in Students > Student Enrolment. From there click Add to create a student enrolment. Once enroled you’ll see the student can then show up in the Fast Finder search, and can also be enroled in classes through Timetable Admin.
A student without an enrolment is generally considered inactive by the system, they’ll still have a User account but generally won’t show up in lists or attendance pages (unless you click the All Students checkbox available in some searches).
Hope this helps! Give a shout with any other questions
Hi Sandra, this is my first comment here, i am 2 weeks into using Gibbon and i got to say Thank you very much for all the team here for what you guys are doing.
My question is how to bulk add students to Roll groups, i already added all my students to Gibbon, and added them 1 by 1 to roll groups, but i removed the school year, and i lost all the roll groups i created, and i have to start from scratch.
any luck i can just multi select students to add them instead of going crazy adding one by one.
Hi, if any one comes across this, to bulk add students to role groups
i enabled the permission for students enrolment for my teachers on User Admin>Manage permissions, and asked each one to add his students, all i had to do is send them a video on how to do it, and it saved me so much effort.
Hi Aziz, this is indeed a creative solution, and great to see that you trust your teachers.
if you look under Admin > System Admin > Import From File, you’ll see an import called Student Enrolment. This allows you to bulk create imports from a file.
In future years, you can use the Rollover (Admin > User Admin) to help automate this process. This is one part of Gibbon we have documented : ) https://docs.gibbonedu.org/administrators/timetable/rollover/
