Impero Classroom can automatically identify the student logged into the device if automatic login identifiers have been configured. These identifiers can be set to Staff names or email accounts used to login to devices.

The following identifiers are supported on the listed OS platforms.

  • Windows- Local account Staffname or email address.
  • ChromeOS- Staff account email address.
  • iOS- Not supported.
  • Android - Email address of Google account.

The identifiers require to match the case type (upper/lower case) at both ends. So the Staffname/email address added to Classroom must match that used to login to the system.

Examples

Invalid match

Added to class:room - A.Staff@schoolemail.com

Login on device - a.Staff@schoolemail.com

Valid match

Added to class:room - a.member@schoolemail.com

Login on device - a.member@schoolemail.com

TIP: If you run the “whoami” command in Windows, it doesn’t give you the Staff name correctly; use “echo %Staffname%” instead to get the case specific version.

Further information around the windows environment as a lot of our customers have a different user profile configuration for their devices, here’s another way of how to identify the identifiers.

Navigate to C:\Users our software looks at the name of these profile folders to pick up the naming convention.

For example, in some windows environments users may log in as First initial second name, but the folder be configured differently in the C:\Users folder directory such as Display name this needs to match the identifier in Backdrop.


For bulk uploads of automatic login identifiers, we can populate a CSV file on mass to import into your Backdrop 

environment if they are not automatically brought across.
