Users are automatically added to their departments and class groups from the sync with your SIS/MIS. However, if you would like to add someone to a department or class group, you can easily do this once you are in the Full Administration role and have permissions to manage users. 

This can be useful for PME teachers, team teaching or for temporary access for a time to a class group. It can also be useful to add an SNA to a group to support a student.

Note: If you manually add someone to a department or class group, you will need to manually remove them when they no longer require access.

If you remove someone from a department or class group that is part of your SIS/MIS sync, the next time the sync runs it may put the person back in the department or class group. In that case, you would need to remove access for them in your SIS/MIS system.
