Create, configure, and customize your domain.

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

Domain toolbar

From the Domain toolbar, you can manage elements of the current domain using:

  • Edit to change the domain's name and external ID.
  • Move to relocate the domain.
  • Settings to edit a variety of domain settings.
  • Blackout to specify the dates you don't want included when calculating due dates for continuous enrollment courses in your domain. You can also indicate whether you want courses to be able to override these limitations.
  • Enrollments and Observers to import each kind of data as tab-delimited or comma-separated values (.csv) files.
  • Assessment PW to create a password that grants access to all password protected assessments in the domain. This password works in addition to each assessment's original password; it doesn't replace them. Domain-wide passwords are not inherited by subdomains.

Accessibility notes

Four inline help items appear within the Settings toolbar button that are not currently supported by screen readers:

  • In the Landing Content section of the Domain Options tab: Buzz shows the content provided here to users of the selected applications after login. Learn more.
  • In the Learning Standards section of the Course Options tab: Provide a comma-separated list of national, state, and district standard sets for course importing. Available sets include CCSS, NGSS, and state standards as two letter codes. Learn more.
  • In the Authentication section of the Integrations tab next to the Allow users to create their own accounts option: You must provide a code (token) to end-users so that they can create their own accounts. Learn more.
  • In the Authentication section of the Integrations tab next to the Set password policy option: Complete these fields to define your password policy. The duration fields require ISO designators, such as P60D for 60 days or PT15M for 15 minutes. Learn more.

Domain Details

You can review basic information about your domain on the Details tab, including:

  1. Domain Name, Userspace, Domain ID, External ID, and Domain Description.
  2. The Active student summary card uses a pie chart to show how many students are failing, at risk, and succeeding, and the correlating percentages. You can also download enrollment and student information.
  3. The Domain teacher summary lists all teachers in the domain. You can click each name to review their Teacher Dashboard information (which appears in your Admin > Users tool). The colored circles show:
    • Overall Teacher responsiveness in grading activities for each course:
      • Green means you have graded all submitted, gradable items within 2 days or less.
      • Yellow means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 3 or more days ungraded.
      • Red means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 6 or more days ungraded.
    • Aggregated Student performance for each course:
      • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are performing above 10% of the minimum grade for the course.
      • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have failed in 1 of their last five submissions or they are within 10% of failing the course.
      • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have failed 2 of their last five submissions or they are failing the course.
    • Overall Student pace for each course:
      • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are submitting all gradable items on time or that less than 10% are past due.
      • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have 10% or more of gradable items past due.
      • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have 30% or more of gradable items past due.

You can use the Edit menu in Details to change the domain's name and external ID.  

The side menu in Details let's you:  

  • Edit settings to edit a variety of domain settings.
  • Import enrollments and Import observers as tab-delimited or comma-separated values (.csv) files.
  • Move the domain.
  • Set assessment password to create a password that grants access to all password protected assessments in the domain. This password works in addition to each assessment's original password; it doesn't replace them. Domain-wide passwords are not inherited by subdomains.
