During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Be a people person.

Navigate to the People tool using the Main Menu. With this tool, you can:

  1. Use Options to choose what information to display.
  2. Create and Manage Groups.
  3. Use Enrollments to add and drop students.
  4. Invite Students to join a course.
  5. Email students and observers.
  6. Fllter results by Name, List/Group, Score range, and Progress range.
  7. Add students to the Clipboard.
  8. Click students from list to view more detailed information.

The People tool gives you at-a-glance access to tons of student data points in one simple table that you can use to track student progress and provide help where it’s needed.

How do you turn this off for teachers? Do all elements have to be turned off or just a few?

Lyn, it depends upon what you are wanting to turn off. If you want to turn off the entire People tool, and admin can hide it. Some of the features (i.e., Invite Students) requires specific permissions to have.

Kandle Brewer

As the Admin., where do I go in settings to allow the teachers to be able to invite students to their courses?

Great question, Kandle. For a teacher to be able to invite students to their courses, they must be granted a few domain permissions to the domain that the students exist in and the domain they log into (likely the same).

They must have the permissions on the domain to Users: Read to invite users or enroll them into their courses. If you want the teacher to be able to create a user in addition to enrolling them, they must also have the ability to Users: Create.

I hope this helps!
