Assigning multiple users to a group at the same time

This article outlines how to add many users to a specific group, in one go using Engage's nifty bulk-assign functionality.

This article is for ADMINISTRATORS. 💾  

If you have a lot of users that need to be added to a group at once, you can do this swiftly and easily in Engage with just a few steps. 👍😀

Before you get started

Engage users can have multiple permission types. Both teachers and administrators can add and edit groups, but only users with ‘Admin’ (administrator) permissions can assign users to a group in bulk.

You will also need to have set up your specific group before you can assign users to it.

Bulk-assigning users to a group

To add a lot of users to a group in one go:

  1. In Engage, navigate to 'Users' in the toolbar on the left-hand side of your screen.
  2. Select the relevant users by selecting the tick boxes next to each name. If you have grade or class set for specific users, you can also use Advanced Search (click ‘Advanced’ to the right of the search bar) to filter by grade or class. Once you've filtered a list, you can use the universal selector (the first tick box at the top of your user list) to select all users in your filtered search.

  3. Once you’ve selected the right users, click the yellow ‘Assign Group’ button towards the top of the page.
  4. Type in the name of your group and click ‘Save’.
