Currently when a user is to be added to Emerge the school administrator (or hosted administrator) must open the Emerge Management Console and create a new user manually. The same applies for forgotten passwords; the administrator must open the Emerge Management Console and reset it.
With Active Directory integration the creation of users in Emerge Management Console is automatic and invisible. The school administrator works with Groupcall to set a configuration to help Emerge work out whether a user trying to log in is staff or a student – the latter can’t come in – and whether that staff is SLT or Teaching, which then controls which profile they see.
Teachers then don’t need to remember an extra username and password for their Emerge app and can use the same username and password as any other school device, via the Active Directory.
