Only group owners and Admins at the school or district can add users to a group.

This does not apply to the mobile app. You must be on a mobile web browser or computer to perform the tasks outlined in this guide.

  1. If you are on a web browser, click 'Groups' in the left sidebar under Participate, find the group you want to add to. If you are on the ParentSquare app, use the "More" tab at the bottom of the app, then select groups. Use your mouse or finger to hover the group title to see the 'Manage' gear icon.
  2. From the Edit Group page, add members by using any combination of the 4 main add options.

    Add Members by Selecting Students - Search by student name or grade level. Enter the grade or student name in the Search box and click the box next to the student you want to select. Selecting students will add all associated parents to the group.

    Add Members by Name or Role - Search for parent or staff names. Click the box next to the parent or staff name to select them for the group. Click 'Show selected rows only' to see all those selected. Once you have everyone selected for the group, click 'Save.' If you would like to add a student and their parent, add the student using the "Add Members by Selecting Students" box above to ensure both both the student and the parent are added to the group.

    Add External Members - Invite External Users (add members as External Users if they are not already ParentSquare users and are not parents/staff at the school). Enter the new user's full name, email address and/or phone number. NOTE: External users are only able to see posts to groups they are a part of, they will not be able to see other posts from the school.

    Add Members by uploading CSV - Create a CSV file with a single column of student SIS IDs or staff IDs. Click 'Upload Student CSV file'. Choose the CSV file with the single column of student SIS IDs and upload the file. You can also upload multiple External Users with a CSV file of users' names and emails.

    Note: If someone is already a member of the group, clicking on their name in either of the first two selection screens will remove them from this group.

  3. Click on the 'Save' button at the bottom of the page to save all the selections and new additions made.
