Customize & Edit Terminology

Updated on May 13, 2022
Table of contents

This section describes one of the unique functions of the Classter Portal which is Customizing Terminology. This is a very important section because it allows you to modify the terminology to meet the needs of your educational institution. In various educational systems there are terms that have different names but mean the same thing or many different things e.g., Grade, Year, Class etc.

Configuration > Main Settings > Customize Terminology

Figure 9

On this page you will see the following (Figure 9):

  • View terminology in either Card or Grid view by clicking on the View button and choosing either option.
  • From the search field you may locate the term you wish to change.
  • You can switch between tabs e.g., General, Custom Student, Custom Teachers, Custom Other Contacts and Custom Admissions. The default tab is the General tab.
  • By clicking on the terminology card, you can edit it.
  • Click on the refresh button to refresh page.

Note: If a terminology is left empty the system will apply the Global Culture Term.

Edit Terminology

Once you have clicked on the term you want to edit you will be transferred to the edit page (Figure 10).

On the edit page you must fill out the following fields (Figure 10):

  1. Culture: here you can select the language you wish to change the terminology in. Most likely the language you use in the portal e.g., English (UK). The terminology change will apply only to the specific language in which you make the change. The Global Culture option however will apply when a default language is not selected.
  2. Main Terminology: Instead of Grade you can enter Year.
  3. Plural Terminology: Here you must write the plural form of the term e.g., Years.
  4. Info: Here you may add a description of the terminology used or synonyms.

Once you are done click on the ‘Save and Close’ button to save changes and close this page. You will return to the main customize terminology page.

Note: You will be able to view changes by logging out and in again. Examples of how this change in terminology will appear in the portal (Figure 11).
