Home Page Panels

The Home Page is divided into panels such as Quick Access, Unread Messages, and Reports. The exact panels you can access depend on your district's configuration and your permissions.

You can rearrange the panels on your home page by holding the mouse/pointer down on the title of a panel, dragging it to a new position, and then releasing the mouse/pointer. You can also collapse and expand home page panels by clicking a panel's expand or collapse icon. Expanding or collapsing is temporary by default.

Use Save Home Page Configuration to preserve the home page arrangement.


Messages other users have sent you are listed in the unread messages panel. You may read, respond to, forward, or delete any messages you receive.
