How Can I Give My Staff View-Only Access?


Keep your faculty in the loop on absences covered by Swing Education substitute teachers by equipping them with view-only access to the Swing platform.

View-only access is designed for staff who would benefit from knowing which Swing Subs will be on your campus and where those individuals should go. 

This feature is best for:

  • Front office personnel 
  • Teachers
  • School leaders whose needs are posted by a sub desk coordinator/HR

What can view-only access users do?

  • Report substitute teacher issues (e.g., late arrivals) 
  • Leave feedback on substitute teachers directly from their account
  • See substitute teacher profiles and request details

Your current Swing users will continue to have the same account permissions and functionality (unless you prefer otherwise); we recommend view-only access for any school personal who will not need to post your substitute needs. 

Why View-Only Access

Save Time and Improve Your Swing Experience

View-only access will help your school staff better support the Swing Subs who visit your campus. For example, a secretary with view-only access would be able to confirm who the substitute is and direct that educator to the right classroom. 

How does this help you?

  • Your staff can resolve substitute teacher issues (e.g., late arrivals) 
  • Your staff will have more helpful information on the substitute and the request
  • Your staff works directly with the sub, so they can leave first-hand feedback about their experience
