    The administrator dashboard must be activated by the PlayPosit team. Once activated, launch your PlayPosit account from your LMS or login directly on and navigate to the ADMIN tab.

    Setting up the administrator dashboard

    By default, the name of your institution will appear on the left and all instructors will be added under one tab. Email the PlayPosit team if you would like to add multiple tabs and organize instructors into sub-groups (school site, grade level, department, etc.).

    Uploading instructors

    To affiliate instructors with your institution, click Manage Licenses and complete the table. 

    • All instructor accounts entered here will be upgraded to premium
    • You can copy/paste formatted roster (< 100 instructors at a time) into the uploader
    • If instructors will access PlayPosit from a LMS, enter a placeholder password
    • Creating a password here will not override existing instructor credentials
