Updating your Landing Page Preferences
Once you have logged in successfully, you will be taken to your landing page. We offer two layouts; the Dashboard, and the Home.
The first is our classic view, the Dashboard; showing a summary of what's taking place in your account, including upcoming events and deadlines and visibility of class content. It features a key left-hand menu, that can be expanded and collapsed, and the browser will smart-adapt to fit the screen size of the device you're using.
The second option is our newly designed Home menu. It has a cleaner, minimalist look & feel that closely aligns with our new Mobile (Phone + Tablet) design.
It also comes with greater customisation options, allowing you to personalise your view, while preserving fast, one-click access to all key pages.
Key tabs can be pinned to the Home menu to sort tiles in priority order for ease of access.
The new Home Menu is fully customisable, so you can optionally toggle on/off sections, and pin your most important menu tiles and classes for fast access.
Users are able to select a default landing page so that they are automatically directed to a specific page in ManageBac upon logging in. This can be set within your profile settings or by clicking on your Profile Photo > Personalisation > selecting desired landing page .
Editing Personal Information
Via Your Profile icon > Manage Your Profile
Once you have logged in successfully, you can update your personal information, including student photo, e-mail address and password by clicking on your photo in the upper right corner of your ManageBac account. Here you can click on Manage Your Profile and Edit Profile to edit your personal information.
Note: You will not be able to edit your personal information if student profiles have been locked by your ManageBac administrator. If this is the case, we recommend you get in touch with an administrator/advisor from your Key Contacts list, found on the right-hand side of your dashboard.
Updating your E-mail
Update your e-mail address in the E-mail field. An email will be sent to the updated e-mail address for confirmation. Please check your inbox to validate your e-mail.
Changing your Password
From your Profile settings click Change password to update your password. This is the password you use to access your ManageBac account.
Students can also reset their password from the login page. By clicking on Forgot your password?, the user will be prompted to enter the e-mail address associated with their ManageBac account. An email will be sent with instructions on how to reset the password.
