Counselors have the ability to add parents to any of their student records in SCOIR, or to import a parent file in bulk to SCOIR. This article reviews how to add a parent to a student record and invite that parent. Please see the help section for the bulk add.
When adding a parent to a student record, a few fields are required.
1. Parent first name
2. Parent last name
3. Parent email - this must be unique and not an email that is already taken/used by another parent in your high school.
There are two ways to add parents. Via the student record, or by navigating to the Student | Parent tab using the top ribbon tabs.
To add directly in the student record, search for the student.
Go to the Overview tab on the student profile.
Navigate to the Parents section.
Click Add Parent. If your parent is already in SCOIR, you can connect them to this student or you can Add a new Parent.
Complete the required information.
And Save or Save & Invite! Notice the student name appears in the bottom as the 'connected' student!
This same process can be performed by navigating to the Student Ribbon tab and clicking on the Parent tab.
Click Add Parent.
The only difference when adding a parent from the main parent tab is that the student must be entered at the bottom to connect with the parent.
