Stile admins have access to the Manage Staff page, which grants them additional oversight in their school Stile accounts.
Each school on Stile can have one or more admins - usually the Head of Science, a teacher in a similar role, or someone from IT.
The Manage Staff page allows the admin to do the following:
- Invite teachers to join the school account;
- Manage co-teachers in all active subjects (New! August 2020);
- Remove teachers from the school;
- Manage teachers' ability to create subjects;
- Bulk upload student and teacher credentials;
- Integrate Stile with Canvas learning management system (New! August 2020).
Click the white Manage staff button on the home page to access these tools.
Invite teachers to join the school account
Click the blue Invite teachers via email button to add teachers to your school's account.
Type the teachers' email addresses into the text field that appears and then click Send invitation email.
Note: Vic DET and NSW DoE teachers do not require an invitation. Log in at stileapp.com using Department credentials and Stile will automatically place the teacher account in the correct Stile school.
Manage co-teachers in all active subjects (New! August 2020)
School admins now have the ability to add and remove co-teachers in any active subject at the school. This is especially helpful when managing casual relief teachers, stepping in for teachers who have gone on leave, or quickly grabbing a class code for a new student when the teacher is unavailable.
Subjects are listed per teacher, so find the teacher in your Staff list who is currently enrolled in the subject and click the View subjects button to the right of their name.
The next page will list all of that teacher's active subjects. Click on the Manage co-teachers button to the right of the subject you want to manage.
This view of the subject will show you all of the current co-teachers in the subject. To add a new co-teacher (or yourself) click the blue Invite via email button.
A window with a large text box will pop up. Enter the new co-teacher's email address and then click the blue Send invitation email.
The new co-teacher will be added to the subject so they can access it straight away. They will also receive an invitation email with a link directly to the subject.
Remove teachers from the school account
Click the rubbish bin to the right of a teacher's name to remove them from the school.
Note: This will remove the teacher from any active and archived subjects in which they are enrolled; it will not delete their account. They can still be enrolled in other Stile schools.
Manage subject creation rights
Subject creation rights allow a teacher to create new subjects and add resources from the Stile Science library.
- Rights are enabled by default when a teacher is invited to join the school via the Manage staff page.
- Rights are disabled by default if the teacher is invited to co-teach a subject, without first being added to the Manage staff page.
Click the cog button to the right of a teacher's name to enable or disable subject creation rights. Select your preference for that teacher and then click the blue Confirm button.
Bulk upload students and teachers
Admins have the ability to set up classes in bulk using the CSV Importer tool. Read this detailed tutorial to learn more.

Stile now offers integration with Canvas LMS for any participating school. This integration allows teachers to link Stile lessons in Canvas and copy marks over to the Canvas Gradebook. To set up the integration, follow the step-by-step guide here.
