This article assumes that you have already installed the SchoolWise for Microsoft Teams apps in Microsoft 365. You can check out this article to see how to install the apps.

We have also put together a starter kit with everything you need to know to get the apps up and running in your school.

The apps can be added to as many Microsoft Teams or Channels as you like depending on how your school's Microsoft Teams environment is set up. There are three SchoolWise for Microsoft Teams apps;

  1. Learner Support (Management, leadership and care teams)
    This is added to a Team that school management, leadership and care teams have access to. It is used to capture, input and maintain information for learner profiles. It is also used to run reports including academic tracking.

  2. Gradebook (Teachers)
    Added to your class Team. Capture, and import assessments. Gradebook also provides in-depth analysis and actionable insights for your learners. You can take action such as adding notes, messaging and accessing individual learner plans.

  3. Curriculum Planner (Subject departments)
    This is best added on a Team that you have created for a subject department that you and your colleagues have access to.

Note: Adding an app to a Team does not grant permission for each member of the Microsoft Team to use that function of SchoolWise. The user is still required to have the necessary permission in SchoolWise. In other words, if you add the Learner Support app to a Team but do not have the appropriate permission assigned to your account in SchoolWise, you will not see any data.

Let's take a look at how to add a SchoolWise app in Microsoft Teams.

1. Click on the Team where you want to install the app and click the Add a tab icon.

2. The list of apps available for your school will appear. You can scroll through the apps or use the search box and enter schoolwise to filter the list. Simply click on the app you want to add to the Team and then click the Add button.

3. This will display the configuration screen for the app. Click on the group to choose a class or department depending on the app you are adding, and click the Save Group button to save this setting. Finally, click the Save button at the bottom to save the configuration.

4. That's it! Your app should now be displayed on the list of tabs.

Note: The Gradebook app will need to be reconfigured at the start of an academic year as it is linked to your current timetable. This is the case if you plan to re-use a Team from last year. Alternatively, you can remove the app and add it back again.
