Firstly, create the Personnel record for the member of staff under Focus > Person > Staff, click , fill in the appropriate details and click (Ignore this step if you have already created the personnel record) If the account is for a class teacher, make sure they are added to the correct class under Focus > School > Pastoral Structure > Current Structure in order to see the correct register.
Select the user you want to request and fill in the required details such as role and their personal email address. Using the drop-down at the bottom of the form, choose the email address that you wish the account details to be sent to and click ‘Request user‘
After closing out of the form, the request will then be sent and authorised by Scomis before the details are sent, within 2 working days.
Please Note: The Scomis Access Control policy which is part of our compliance for ISO27001 requires that user accounts must be named per person and not generic or obviously fake i.e. teacher.one, supply.teacher, donald.trump, homer.simpson, frodo.baggins etc. as they are not audit able or unique to any one user.
After you have received the user account details, you can use the option under the User Management option to assign the user with additional shortcuts such as FMS, File manager and DCC applications. Please see the following FAQ’s on how to add a user to these common additional applications:
