Teachers can create temporary passwords for students to help them log in.
You can help your students log in quickly by giving them a temporary password. This will only work if the student is enrolled in a Stile Subject which you control. If the student is not yet in your Subject, then they can request a password reset email via the login page.
Note: If your students normally log in through a school portal, that means your school's Stile account is set up with Single Sign-On (SSO). The student will use the same email and password that they use to access their email inbox. Contact your school's IT staff to reset the password.

Create a password for an individual student
Within your Subject, click the Students button in the header to go to the Students page. Find your student's name in the class list. Make sure they are typing their email address exactly as it appears in your list.
Shortcut: Use your browser's Find tool to quickly search for the student's name. Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F for Windows or Cmnd + F for Mac to open the Find tool and enter the student's name or email address.
Once you've found the student, click the Reset password button to the right of their email address to reveal the temporary recovery password. The password is valid for 4 days and will expire as soon as it is used. The student will be asked to create a new password as soon as they log in, and they will receive an email alerting them that their account was accessed using the temporary password.
Note: If the student mistypes their email address, then the recovery password still won't work. Make sure they are typing their email address exactly as it appears in your Class list.
What to do if the student isn't enrolled in your Class yet
You can enrol your student via email If they already have an account in another Subject at your Stile school. This will send them an invitation email and also auto-enrol them in the Class, so they don't need to use the email. You will then have access to the Reset password button mentioned above.
Contact the Stile Support team if your student has an account tied to another school. They can help you enrol the student and reset their password. Be sure to include the student's email address, your Subject's name, and which Class to add them to.
Print passwords for the whole class
The Print all passwords option creates temporary passwords for everyone in the Class. These passwords are unique to each student and will only last 4 days. Print them out the day of your class time to ensure they are fresh. They do not override your students' chosen passwords.
Protip: Students are more likely to forget their login details at the start of term or before a big exam. Print this page to be prepared, and then destroy it at the end of the day!
Select which Class you need and then click the Print all passwords button above the list of students.
This will open your browser's print window. The document preview will show your students' accounts and their unique temporary passwords.
Click Print to print the document. Cut out the student login details before class time and give each student their card as they sit down. Your students will be prompted to make new passwords before continuing to the Lesson.
