Student details

Student data can be managed on your Squad In Touch account by either Admins or Managers, if you have MIS integration as part of your subscription you won’t need to update details as this will be done automatically the night following your MIS data is updated.

Below is a list of details that you can / will need to put on your Squad In Touch account;

  • First Name – Required, please note if you would like to add other identifiable names for students you can do this
  • Surname – Required, please note you can either just add first letter of surname or other identifiable names if you prefer
  • Gender – Required
  • Year Group – Required
  • Form Group – Optional
  • House – Optional
  • Date of Birth – Optional
  • Medical information – Optional, we recommend that this data is coded
  • Emergency contact details – Optional, if you would like parents to be auto-accepted based on this information you will need to provide it
  • Pupil Premium / SEN – Optional

You can access student lists via Users > Students tab. There you can see student’s principal details as well as active parental accounts linked to them. The list allows for filtering records by the chosen criteria. Filtering/Searching is available by:

  • Name
  • Surname
  • Form
  • Age group
  • Gender
  • Date of birth interval
  • Tags

Once the filtering criteria has been applied (the Apply filter button) the records will be filtered based on them. To remove the filter click the Clear filter button. Please note if you select people based on your filter, then your re-filter, the users you have selected will be refreshed.
If your school has General messages included in your subscription you will be using the same list when sending messages to parents and/or students. Using filtering/searching options you will be able to send messages to selected users or groups.

To edit student’s details you will need to select them on the list and then click the Edit button.

If you have MIS integration included in your subscription it is strongly recommended that you don’t change any of the student’s details manually. All the changes done on your MIS will be applied automatically to the data on Squad in Touch during the next synchronisation period.
