How to use tags in DreamClass

In DreamClass you can use tags to group entities that share the same characteristics and organize information much more efficiently. Tags are very powerful as they are highly customizable, can be used for any classification and work in combination with other parameters at your school.

You can create multiple groups of tags for the following list of entities:
  1. Class
  2. Student
  3. Teacher
  4. File
For example, you may create Teacher tags that group Teachers based on their contract agreement (Part time vs Full time) and manage their payments faster.
