New Home Menu Video
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 by clicking on your Profile Photo > Personalisation > Landing Page > selecting desired landing page.
Home Menu Customisation
Using the recommended Home Menu as your landing page allows you to personalise your view, while preserving fast, one-click access to key pages. To customise your Home Menu:
- On the right-hand side click the Home Customisation icon
- Use the arrows to drag and drop to reorder the sections
- Toggle sections on or off
- Select a wallpaper background to be shown on the Home Page
- Optionally, reset to the school's default set by admin
Section Tiles Customisation
You can further personalise your ManageBac Home page by adding custom section tiles. Within the Home Customisation menu, click Edit on the Custom section. The tile options available have been tailored to suit the different user types: Admin, Teacher, Student or Parent.
To add a tile to your Home, just drag and drop to the available spaces. You can add a maximum of 2 section tiles to show alongside the default Calendar.
Home Menu Sections
Menu: The menu section will display navigational items that were previously listed on the left-hand menu in a tile format. You will have the ability to pin each tile to give you quick access to your most commonly accessed sections within ManageBac.
Calendar: Today’s events, tasks & deadlines are shown front and centre alongside the chosen custom tiles. For schools using our Attendance module, we have also added in Rotation Days below the calendar date.
Classes, Year Groups and Groups: This section will display a list of classes, year groups, and groups that you are assigned to for quick access. You will also have the ability to pin classes, year groups or groups to bring them to the top of the list. Please note, if you had classes or groups previously pinned on the left-hand menu, these will carry over to the new Home Menu.
Quick Links: This section will show configured Quick Links or Link folders depending on how the school has configured these.
Different user types can see different links and folders. The section can be reordered like any other sections, but the configuration of the links is only possible for admin level users on a school level in the Settings > School Settings > Quick Links page.
Unit Calendar: Admins and Teachers can enable the Unit Calendar widget via Home Customisation. The widget allows you to view the Unit Calendar for any of your classes from the Home page. You can select the different programmes and classes. Hovering over the info icon will reveal further Unit details. The Unit Calendar shows the first five units and you can click Show More to see the rest.
[COMING SOON] ManageBac Updates & Announcements: This section will feature important system updates as well as personalised Subject-specific resources, including exemplar units, newsfeed updates & more across the IB DP & MYP.
