NB, the Add Users feature this release has been rolled back. A bug in the RM unify api prevented the selection of pupils via year group. We will reinstate the change when the bug is fixed.
There will be a new release on the Glow Blogs Service on Monday 09th January 2017 between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
We expect that the service will be unavailable for only a few minutes but should be considered at risk for the whole period.
The main focus of the release is a change to the data that is available on the Add Users screen. Blog administrators will now be able to bulk add users to a blog by selecting and adding year groups and registration groups in addition to the existing teaching groups, if they have been setup in SEEMiS.
This will be particularly useful in primary schools as they generally do not have teaching groups in Glow.
Manual addition of users to blogs will continue to be available as now. Help will be added for this change in the Glow Blogs Help blog once the functionality is live.
We will update the Adding Users, Setting Roles page here on the help blog as soon as possible after the release.
