If you have an existing new SmartMusic account and have renewed it for another year, best practice is to archive your classes from the previous year and create new classes. This preserves your classes' Gradebook information from the previous year, and allows you to start again with new classes and Gradebook information.
Step 1: archive classes from the previous year.
Archive any classes from last year by logging into https://admin.smartmusic.com > selecting Classes > and clicking the Archive button for each class. For detailed steps with screenshots of this process (including how to find class information that has been archived), see our Archiving a class article.
Step 2: create new classes.
Create new classes from the Classes page on the Admin portal by selecting the Create Class button. For detailed steps of this process, see our Creating a class article.
Step 3: enroll previous students and add new students.
Enroll previous students to your new classes by following the steps in our Enrolling previous students article. Add new students to your classes by following the steps in our Adding students to your class article.
Step 4: create a Grading Calendar for each new class.
Setup your Grading Calendar for each new class by following the steps in our Creating a Grading Calendar article.
Step 5 (Optional): create a Grading Scale for each new class.
Setup your Grading Scale for each new class by following the steps in our Creating a Grading Scale article.
