How do I assign supervisors to communicators using the 'room' feature?

Adjusting Room Users


Because staff within your organization may change from time to time, and communicators may be assigned to different rooms, SLPs, or managers CoughDrop has provided a tool to manage that change.  

To adjust your organization settings, click on the "organization management" tab from your CoughDrop dashboard.

Next, click on the "rooms" tab on the right to organize those assignments.

Once you are on the rooms page, you can tap the room name to see more detailed information about that room, its supervisors, and communicators.

Although this feature is called "rooms," it does not have to reflect a physical environment. Think of this as an area being used to assign a supervisor, teacher, therapist, support staff, etc over all the communicators they work with. It can be used for board management, segmented reporting, and addressing support and user settings. 

These assignments may be more temporary (the communicator might move age group, a staffing change, or the communicator moves from your institution).  

You can more permanently attach a supervisor to a communicator (like a family member) outside of the organizational tool as they will have stewardship of the communicator for a longer term. 

Instructions for how to do that can be found here: How do I connect my CoughDrop account to a supervisor?


Please note that a supervisor or a communicator can be assigned to multiple rooms. 


To create a room,  enter the room name you want into the field at the bottom of the "rooms" page and then hit "add room."




To add a supervisor or communicator to a room, click on the plus “+” icon and select the user you would like to add to that room.


Note: The user must accept your invitation to join the organization before he or she can be added to a room.  Learn more about accepting an org invitation in this support article.  

Supervisors can be added with either ‘edit’ permission (the ability to edit boards and user settings), or as a ‘view only’ partner (the ability to view the user and their reports & activities, or access and model & speak on their boards).


Reporting can then be viewed for each room by hitting the room name to open reports for that room.
