Register Students via Manual Creation

Last updated by Rachel Cohen on August 23, 2018 16:25

Registering students is a paid feature.

This method should only be used your students do not have school email addresses.

Navigate to the My Students tab at the top of the page. In the left panel, select groups. Select the option 'Add Users' next to the group you'd like to add students to. Learn about creating new groups here.

There are three options on this page, Group invitation (invitation code), Import from Excel and Manual creation. The manual method is on the right.

Enter the names of your students or their email addresses. If you enter names, we will generate login emails for them, if you enter emails, those will act as their logins.

All names must be unique so you may need to use last initials or some other identifier if some students have the same name. Alternatively, you can also use student ID numbers or some other unique identifiers. After entering the names, click CREATE ACCOUNTS.

Next, an automatic download will start on your browser. A file with the name 'userlist.csv' will be saved on your PC. Keep this file as it will have all the information about the accounts you just created for the students.  

Your students will use the information in the login email and password columns to log in at www.thinglink.com/edu. They are automatically in your group and will inherit the same advanced features you have purchased.
