In order to upload documents to the File Zone, a folder must be created to save the file in.

There may be circumstances where documents need to be uploaded to view in the Parent Message Centre for particular school pupil groups, e.g. GCSE information for Year 11 pupils. Assigning particular year groups to a document folder will ensure it only displays to parents of the chosen pupil group.

2. Click the ‘Document Manager’ panel list item in the File Zone on the Dashboard.


3. Click ‘Folders’ in the left-hand menu.
