Once you’ve set up a prescribed list with books, allocate them to specific groups so that students and teachers get what they need immediately.
This article is for TEACHERS and BOOKSELLERS. 🍏📝
🙌 Plus, if your school is ordering digital books, these users will be able to start using their ebooks immediately. That’s right – titles that have been included on a prescribed list at the beginning of the school year and linked to a user group will be delivered to users ahead of payment. Find out more about our Early Access feature.
Before you get started
Engage users can have multiple permission types, and only users with 'Teacher' or 'Bookseller' permissions can set up prescribed lists. Talk to your school's ‘Admin’ (administrator) to give you this permission type if you do not already have it.
Linking a group to your prescribed list
If your user group already exists, you will be able to link the group to your list from your prescribed list page or from the group page:
- Navigate to 'Prescribed' or ‘Groups’ when logged in to Engage.
- Click the title of the prescribed list or group you wish to view.
- On the prescribed list page, type the name of your group into the textbox under 'Groups' and select the correct group from the drop-down options.
- Alternatively, from the group page, click the green '+ Add prescribed list' button. Type in the name of your prescribed list, and select the correct one from the drop-down menu. Then click ‘Save’ to confirm your choice.
Users with the Bookseller role will only be able to link groups from the 'Prescribed' section of Engage.
