How to create a Permission Set and assign it to a class?

Follow

Permission Sets are a critical part of Classroom by Securly that helps the teacher control what her students access on their devices during a particular period of time. A Permission Set is a time-based filtering policy that is customized by the teacher for her classes.

You can create a variety of Permission Sets as per your requirements and assign it to the relevant classes.

Note that only one Permission Set can be assigned to a particular class at a given point. Also, if a student moves from one class to another, the first Permission Set will end and the most recent Permission Set will become applicable to him.

  1. Log into your Classroom by Securly.
  2. Navigate to the ‘Permissions’ tab.
  3. Click ‘Create Permission Set’ button.
  4. Input a name in the ‘Permission Set Name’ field.
  5. Select the ‘Mode’ for the Permission Set
    1. The Lock Down mode will block all sites for the duration of the Permission Set. You can add exceptions in the ‘Add exceptions’ field to all some sites.
