Online Planning Tutorial
Adding Student Logins
Adding Student Logins
As your students grow and mature, it becomes increasingly important for them to learn how to manage their own time, chores, and school assignments. This is why your Online Planning account includes the option to create student logins. With their own logins, your students can view their daily assignments and chores, check off what they have completed, and stay on top of their own progress.

As helpful as it is for moms to be well organized, it is also essential that our children learn good time management and organizational skills as well. We’re going to explore how you can use the Well Planned Gal online planner to help your student learn time management skills.
There are two ways to create logins for your student. The easiest way is to click on the Students icon in your Online Planning main menu.
First, make sure your student’s profile is completely set up. If you didn’t select an image or a color for your students when you first set up your school year, now is a great time to take care of that. Simply click on the edit icon beside your student’s name, make any needed changes, click Save, and return to the Student menu.
To create your student’s login, click the down arrow beside Permissions.
The second way to add student logins is through your Admin Management.
As a quick observation, you’ll notice that Teacher and Admin are additional options for User Type when creating a user in Admin Management. You are automatically an Admin, but you may want to add an additional admin, such as your spouse, to the system. The Teacher login allows Lessons page management only, including grading and notes.
Your student login page will be a simplified version of your login. When logged in, your student will be able to do the following:
Once your student marks an assignment or task as complete or sends a note to you, you will be able to see it in your own Admin login.
With access to their own account, students can learn to be responsible for their own assignments and chores, while you easily keep track every step of the way.
My student doesn’t have an e-mail address. Can I still set up a login for them?
If your student does not have an e-mail address, you may use a parent’s secondary e-mail address or use one of the many systems designed to create safe, family-oriented digital communication. It is important, however, that each login have a unique address.
How do I reset my student login password?
Simply go the to Students page in your Online Planning account, click on Permissions for the student whose password needs to be updated, and enter a fresh password. See the Student Logins video or Instructional for more information.
Can student login accounts change assignments?
Students are not able to change, add, or delete assignments. They may only mark them as complete.
What type of account should I set up for my spouse so they can also log in and update/grade items?
A teacher account is a simple account with the Lessons page as the only view. With this account login, you can view assignments by date, adjust dates as needed, edit assignment information, mark assignments complete, and input grades. See the Student Login video for instructions on how to set up accounts through Admin Management, and select Teacher instead of Student to activate this type of login.
