Parents Teams Assignment User Guide
a) When you launch the Teams app for the first time, it will ask you to sign in with an email address. Type in the email address that you have on record with the school. If you already have a personal Microsoft account attached to this email address, it will prompt you for your password and will let you sign in. You can move onto Step 2: Enable School Connection within The Teams App. If you don’t have a personal Microsoft account attached to the email address the school has on file for you, you will be prompted to create a free new account. Select Create a new account.
Note: You can only use a personal Microsoft account to use School Connection (the functionality of Teams that allows you to look at student homework). You can not use a Microsoft work or organisation email address. If we only have a work or organisation email address on account for you – please contact the school to add a personal email address to your school record.
b) Click Next when it prompts you to create an account
c) Enter your First name and Surname where prompted. These should match the names the school has on file for you. Click Next.
