Tags for Pupils

ADAM can add tags to pupils’ name banners so that whenever the pupil is searched for, the tags can be quickly and easily seen to alert your staff to important information regarding the pupil.

Kindly note that tags are shown to every staff member and thus care should be taken to ensure that the tags are not used to convey confidential or sensitive information.

Managing the Tags

Navigate to Pupils → Pupil Tags → Manage Tags.

Adding a new tag

To add a new tag, click on the “Add new Pupil Tag” link at the top of the screen.

Give a name for the tag (limited to 50 characters), a background colour and a foreground colour. Please make sure that your foreground colour is sufficiently contrasted with the background so that it is legible! Click on Save this Pupil Tag to see the changes. ADAM will show a preview of the tag in the next window.

Editing a tag

From the list of tags, click on the edit option to the right of the tag you’d like to edit:

You can then adjust the name and colours associated with the tag. Note that any pupils who are assigned to this tag will automatically show the changed tag immediately.

Deleting a tag

Next to the tag in the table, click on the delete button.

You will be asked to confirm your actions. Note that every pupil who is assigned to the tag will lose the tag and there is no way to undo this action. Once deleted, the tag is gone! A deleted tag would have to be manually recreated and re-assigned to the necessary pupils.

Assigning Tags to Pupils

Navigate to the pupil profile and click on the “Tags” option.

If you do not see a “tags” option on their profile, check first that some tags have been created. You may not have the necessary privileges to assign tags.

A list of active and available tags are shown. Click on an Available tag to assign it to the pupil. You can click on an active tag to de-assign it.
