Profile pages

Use profile pages to get a quick summary of useful information about a person or group.

You can see your own profile by selecting your name in the top right, then choosing  Your Profile from the drop-down. You can also browse other people's profiles either by selecting a class from your timetable or by typing a user's name in the search box. You'll only be able to view profiles that you have permission to access.

As standard, a profile page will display the following sections:

  • Key Facts
  • Blog
  • Posts, Comments & Edits
  • Tasks and Marked Work
  • Timetable

For example, Sally's Student profile looks like this:

More information Links to a user's personal section and any personal blogs or pages they have created.

Each school can customise the information displayed on students' profiles and set permissions so that different users see different things. As a result, parents will likely see a lot less information than you do.
