Mass-assigning parent portal access

1. Get your selection of students. To find kids who don't yet have Access ID/key assigned, search for 


REMEMBER that you want to include preenrolled students; that's why we're doing a compound search -- for "who does not have parent web access enabled, AND whose enroll_status is either -1 (preregistered) or 0 (active)."

2. From the functions popup, choose "ID/Password Assignment."

3. MAKE SURE that the "Don't overwrite existing" box is checked (it should be by default.) Make sure that the RIGHT-hand side "assign" and "enable" are checked, but the LEFT-hand side ones are UNchecked (we do NOT assign student portal credentials this way, ONLY parent access ids and keys!)
