K Teacher ID

Enter text, numbers, or special characters that can be used for identifying the user. This field is useful for filtering, sorting, and searching in many lists and reports.

 Note

For those schools using SSO integration with Clever, this field can contain the user's Clever teacher_number (for teachers) or a Clever staff_id (for admins) which gets populated upon Clever sync. If your school has Clever integration, you may want to check with your school Admin before changing the value in this field.

L Campus IDs Campus IDs associated to a profile can be used to identify virtual or physical sites for your school where the user is involved. This field is useful for filtering, sorting, and searching in many lists and reports.

 Note

For teachers with the Super Teacher role, if this field is left blank, the "Restrict to Campus" permission is disabled. If this field has associated values, the "Restrict to Campus" permission can be enabled.

M Associations

Indicates the number of associations for the user. Associations are connections to outside sources that are used in the system to help manage data flow between the system and the outside source, such as a Student Information System (SIS). Associations are managed by the Admin on the School Settings > User Associations tab.

 

When creating a teacher or admin profile, the number is 0. When editing a profile, the number is 0 if the user has not been associated to any outside sources. If the user has  associations, the field changes to display the number of associations.
