Which users should be designated or assigned as staff members in Clever?
Staff members in Clever are typically referred to as either non-instructional staff members at the district or school, or employees who do not have a designated or assigned roster in your Student Information System (SIS).
Here are just a few examples of the different types of staff members Clever supports:
- Curriculum Leads
- District Help Desk users
- School-specific Tech Leads
- District members
- After-school Coordinators
How do I share staff members or school administrators with an application?
In order for your staff and school administrators to see and access applications in their Clever Portal, they must first be shared with the specific applications and this can be done in your Clever district dashboard. Please visit this Help Center article for information on how to share applications with district staff.
You can always check current staff sharing rules in the Overview tab of any of your applications.
In other cases, staff can also be included in sharing rules based on their school, title, email, or staff ID.
These are the steps to create a sharing rule for staff or school admins:
1. Select Share by Rules from the application's Data Sharing tab.
2. Select the Custom share staff option.
3. Create a new staff sharing rule. You can select staff based on their email, schools administered, staff ID, or title from the dropdown menu.
4. Click Done Editing. From there, you can either Add Another Rule or Save Sharing Rules.
Where do staff members log in (staff SSO)?
Your district staff will use the same single sign-on (SSO) authentication you have designated for your teachers and students (e.g. if your district uses Google, staff can login with their Google credentials).
What if my staff members are also teachers?
Clever supports users being both teachers and staff members!
If an individual is both a teacher and a staff member in Clever, they can access both user accounts using the same set of credentials. Upon entering their credentials, Clever will prompt them to select which role they would like to log in with.
