Groups in the Admin Tool

Search by Group

Click "Groups" from the Account Menu > Admin Tool pane. This page allows Institutional Admins to browse and search through all Groups at their institution, and to sort results by Group name or group ID using the column headers.

Group Details

The Admin Tool search allows you to see relevant details for each Group. You can see the Group name, how many Users are part of the Group, and the unique Group ID. If you click on the "Edit Access" link for a Group, a window will open, showing you the specific Users in the Group.

Add and Edit Groups

Institutional Admins can add Groups directly from the Admin Tool. This can be particularly useful if your work in Warpwire is a bit ahead of the registrar's office, for example.

When you click the "Add Group" button in the upper right of the page, a window will appear.

You'll fill the Name, Unique Identifier, and SIS ID for the Group you are about to create. The SIS ID will vary by institution, depending on the LMS and group management setup in use. If you're unsure about what to put in this field, talk to the other Institutional Admins at your institution, or contact Warpwire.
