Community Management - Bulk Add Users

The Community Management panel is a control panel that will appear on the Zaption account of the administrator(s) of each site license.

On the Community Management panel, there are two different ways to bring instructors and students into your community. The first way is to utilize the auto-join links. For more information this method, please click here.
