The substitute will sign into Minga using Single Sign on at app.minga.io

Second Option - Create Generic Sub Accounts

Create multiple sub accounts for the substitute(s) to sign in to for that day. 

Step by Step:

  1. Navigate to the Manage People tab in People Manager
  2. Click "Add Person"
  3. Input name (A generic name such as Substitute One)
  4. Input email (A generic email such as office+subone@minga.io) 
  5. Select "Staff" for the role so they are not archived by Minga if Automatic Rostering is set up for your school 
  6. Click Save 

The substitute will sign into Minga using "Login with username and password" at app.minga.io

Print Off Login Information 

Next - Print off that login information into laminated cards to hand to the sub.
