Notes are a great way to attach commentary to your students and keep track of any information about that student. Notes are currently the only method of attaching a file to a student's profile. Most commonly you can file a note from your Home tab or via the Search tab. 

To add a Note:

  1. Check the box next to a student’s name, click the Actions button and then click Note.
  2. Enter the text for your note.
  3. Enter a Note Reason (optional). Note Reasons are used to categorize notes for easy reference. These reasons are created and set by your GradesFirst Administrator. 
  4. Attach a file and/or Note URL (both optional).
  5. Select the proper visibility settings.
  6. Click Save Note.
