Next steps #

  • All Presto Assistant organizations must belong to a District. If your organization doesn’t belong to a district yet, then click on the link on your Presto Assistant Dashboard to invite your District Administrator. If your district doesn’t have a District Administrator for Fine Arts, then contact us at support@presto-assistant.com, and we can help!
  • Head to the Directors page to invite any Assistant Directors that work with your program.
  • Import Student, Inventory, Library, and Uniform data in those areas of the Presto Assistant app using our handy templates. In the Presto Assistant system, students should have separate email addresses from their parents. If your district has an email system set up, that would be a good email to use for students in Presto Assistant!
  • If you use Google Calendar, you can sync up with Presto Assistant and choose which calendars are visible to parents and students.
  • When you have your student and parent data ready to go, head to Organization Settings and send the “Welcome Email” to all members to start setting up their Presto Assistant user profiles. Reminder: students should have separate emails from parents.
  • Get in touch with support@presto-assistant.com with any questions you might have!
