From the Admin Console, click into the 'Houses' section.

Adding a House

Select the 'Create New House' button at the top right of the page.

A pop-up will appear - enter the name of the house/dormitory and add the members of staff and click save.


Note: It is important that the House names that you add exactly match the House names in the student database.

Editing or Deleting a House

In the 'Houses' section, click the pencil icon to the right of the House name to edit or the trash can icon in order to permanently delete. To delete a House, the Orah system will require that you type the House name into a pop-up to confirm the deletion.

House Visibility

Once a new house is created, you may need to adjust existing Staff user permissions to give them visibility into that House from the Homeboard.
If you have any questions after reading through, click the blue chat icon at the bottom right-hand corner of this page. This will start a conversation with one of Orah's Team.
