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 won’t be posting substitute teacher requests or handling billing, but would still benefit from knowing which Swing Subs will be on your campus and where those individuals should go.
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 school secretaries, principals, and even teachers.
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.) Additionally, staff with view-only access can leave feedback on the substitute teachers at their school directly from their account.
How does this help you?
- Your staff can resolve substitute teacher issues (e.g., late arrivals) more quickly
- Your Swing sub pool better reflects a broader set of your faculty’s experiences
- Your staff will have more helpful information on the substitute and the request
