With a school account, there are several ways to onboard students:
- Creating accounts using a CSV file
- Sharing an invitation code that students will be asked to enter while they sign up
- Using Azure AD tenancy
- Using G Suite integration
- Using LTI integration with your LMS
From the My School link in the top navigation bar, select School settings. Scroll to the bottom, and click the blue Add Students to School button.
A dialogue box will open. Download the provided template and fill in your students' information. Passwords must be at least 8 characters with both numbers and letters, and the CSV is capped at 500 users. After uploading the filled in CSV, the accounts will be created and students can log in to their accounts.
Group Invitation Code
Another method is via group invitation codes. As your teachers set up their accounts, they will create groups for each of their classes or Courses. Each group has its own invitation code. Students can enter the code as they register themselves.
If your school uses Azure for rostering, you have the option to set up an Azure integration so that whenever someone uses their Microsoft 365 login, they will automatically join the organization.
Please see this article for detailed instructions.
G Suite integration
If your school or district uses G Suite, you can enable our G Suite integration that will automatically add all students and teachers from your domain to your School on ThingLink as long as they are signing in with their Google accounts.

LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability)
LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) is a standard that allows you to integrate ThingLink with your LTI-compatible LMS. With the LTI integration in use, your students and teachers can access ThingLink from your LMS without the need for registration or login. Learn more about LTI integration here.
