  2. Click New at the top of the screen.  The Student Flag Detail window will open.  (See below)

  3. Select the flag name from the drop-down menu.

  4. Enter the current date in the Start Date field.
  5. Click Save.  The flag will display next to the student’s name after refreshing the page.


Useful Tips

  • Text that is entered in the User Warning box will display when hovering the cursor over the flag (see example below).  In addition to information you want users to see, you can also enter your username and date so that others know who created the flag and when.
  • If it is known when the flag should end, for example, an Order of Protection expires on a certain date, enter the End Date when entering the Start Date.
