Adding A New Public User Account

Managing Existing Public Users
Once you search for and edit a user account, you can manage different parts of the account (i.e. Notifications, Subscriptions and see Login History).
The Notifications tab allows you to manage from which Notification Groups the user will receive communications. Notification Groups are created and managed in the Communication Management Tool. If you update the Notifications tab please remember to Save Changes.
On the Subscriptions tab, you can manage a Public User's subscriptions to School Closings and Online Dashboard Weekly Updates. These are items that a Public User signs up for when they create an account. This is useful if a public user call in and requests you remove them from receiving certain types of communications / subscriptions.
If a School Closing/Alert message is sent from the Closing and Alerts tool, subscribed users will receive this message.
Public Users may also subscribe to various forms of content with the Online Dashboard Weekly Updates. They can choose from a variety of information sources such as News, Events, Blogs and Administrator Messages. When subscribed to these updates the User receives a weekly email every Monday that contains the most recent information that is pertinent to they subscriptions.
Once you are finished managing the user's Subscriptions, click Save Changes to keep the updates.
Where do Public Users Sign Up for e-News and Notifications?

Users that already have Public User accounts may sign in here to manage their subscriptions. New users may create an account as well by clicking Create A New Account. Users can subscribe or unsubscribe from communications as well as update their contact information.
