How to Create a User (School Administrator)
As a School Administrator, follow the steps below to create teacher and student accounts in myON.
If your group uses an automated rostering option to synchronise myON students and classes with your student information system, do not follow these steps to create users. Instead, contact your administrator if you have any changes.
- From the main page (dashboard), click My School, then Users.
- Click Create a User.
- Select the user's role, then enter the user's information. First name, last name, user name, password and SIS ID are required. Middle name is optional. For teachers, you may enter an optional email address and phone number. Select the year for students; for teachers, you can leave the default "No Year" selection. When you have finished, select Save.
Note that SIS IDs and user names cannot be duplicated, so you should avoid using the first name + last name as the SIS ID or user name; the possibility always exists that someone with the same first and last name may work for the group. If you need to find the user who already has the SIS ID or user name that you are trying to use, go back to the Users page and select Search All Users; the user may need to be restored or added to your location.
User names and SIS IDs must be at least 3 characters long; passwords should also be at least 3 characters long. Passwords are case-sensitive, so users must enter them exactly as you set them. User names are not case-sensitive.
