A Community is a set of Classes (within Ascend and Elevate) or Groups (within Catalyze) that can be managed together and reported on together.
☝ What should I name my Community? The name you select for a Community should be descriptive of the Classes/Groups and individuals in the Community. Try names like: "Springfield School" or "Springfield Math Department" rather than names like "PERTS Survey" or "The Go Getters."
To set up a Community, it must include Members, Classes/Groups, and a survey schedule. The program provides prompts and guidance to support setup.
Defaults can be used to apply special rules to every Class/Group created in a Community, making setup even easier.
Communities can be pinned so they appear at the top of the list on the program homepage for individuals who belong to several Communities.
The name of the Community will be seen on the program homepage, in reports, and in email invitations to Community members. It’s important that the name is descriptive and clear, particularly for individuals who may belong to several Communities.
- There are three roles in a Community, each with unique permissions and report access. You can read about each in the roles and permissions article.
Every Class/Group and its corresponding Leads must belong to at least one Community and can belong to several. For example, the Class “Ms. Fenton – US History, P7” (and Ms. Fenton herself) might belong to the Communities “Tubman High School” and “Tubman Social Studies Classes,” like in the example below.
