Set Up Your Account
As a school administrator, your account will likely be created by an organization administrator in your organization. Once they have created your account, you will receive a welcome email from Hatch inviting you to log in with a temporary password that you will find in the email. After copying the temporary password, click the green button in the email to go to the Hatch Insights™ login page.
Hatch Insights is the site used to roster your school and view classes' progress as children play IgniteTable.
On the login screen, enter the email address (where the welcome email was sent) and the temporary password that you copied from the email.
Next, you'll be prompted to create a new password. Your password must be more than six characters. After setting up your account, you can get started.
Set Up Your School
As a school administrator, you can add teachers, classes, children, and family members to your school(s). We recommend you start by adding teachers.
All setup steps will need to be completed in Hatch Insights.
Here is the recommended setup order:

Organization administrators can roster all parts of the organization, so you may want to ensure that the steps above have not been completed for you. As a school administrator, you also have the option to delegate class, child, and family member rostering to teachers.
Add Teachers and Classes - Option 1: Bulk Import
If you need to add a lot of teachers and classes, we recommend using our Roster CSV feature to create all your teachers at once. Hover over ROSTER in the top menu of Insights, and under Imports, and click Roster CSV.
On this page, you’ll find the options available to you to help you roster your school(s), but for now, we’ll focus on the import for teachers and classes. You'll need a spreadsheet with columns for school name, teacher first name, teacher last name, email address, class name, and class icon (optional). When the teacher's information is added to a row with a class name, then they will become a teacher for that class.
We recommend downloading our template spreadsheet to start and then editing the file to include your school administrator information. Make sure you remove the template example before uploading. After you've entered all your teacher and class information in the file, save and upload the file at the bottom of the page.
The upload may take some time depending on the size of the file. You can leave the site. When the upload is complete, you'll receive an email with a summary of the changes made to your organization. From here, you can go to the View & Edit Educators page by clicking View All below Teachers or go to the View & Edit Classes page by clicking View All below Classes.
Add Teachers and Classes - Option 2: Single Add
If your school only has a few teachers and you'd like to get started quickly, you can use the Add New Educator option found under ROSTER.
Here, you'll find a short form to add an educator. To add a teacher, first select Teacher under the User Role drop-down menu. Next, you'll need to select a school to add the new teacher to. You'll need the teacher's name and email address to continue.
After entering the teacher's information, you can select an existing class to add the teacher to or create a new class. To create a new class, click the checkbox next to Create a class. Then, you can select the school and add the class name. After adding this information, click the Add User button to create your new teacher and class.
After adding the information, you'll see the user's information. You can choose to Add Another User, or if you click Done Adding Users, you'll be taken to the View All Users page.
Add Children and Family Members - Option 1: Bulk Import
If you need to add a lot of children and/or family members, we recommend using our Roster CSV feature to create all your children/family members at once. Hover over ROSTER in the top menu of Insights, and under Imports, click Roster CSV.
Note: You need to add your schools, teachers, and classes before you can add children and/or family members.
On this page, you'll see options to import all important organization setup information, but right now, we'll look at the requirements for importing all your children and family members. You'll need a spreadsheet with columns for the following: child's teacher's email address, child's class name, child's first name, child's last name, child's birth date, child grade (optional), game language, gender (optional), race (optional), ethnicity (optional), family member first name (optional), family member last name (optional), family member email address (required when family member first name and last name are entered), family member cell phone (optional), and Educational Journey (optional).
Note: If you do not include an Educational Journey, this field will populate all your license types (e.g., Ignite and IgniteTable for those with both).
To learn more about editing children's Educational Journeys please see the following articles:

We recommend downloading our template spreadsheet to start and then editing the file to include your child and family member information. Make sure that you remove the template example before uploading. After you've entered all your child and family member information in the file, save and upload the file at the bottom of the page.
The upload may take some time depending on the size of the fil. You can leave the site. When the upload is complete, you'll receive an email with a summary of the changes made to your organization. From here, you can go to the View & Edit Children page by clicking View All below Children or go to the View & Edit Family Members page by clicking View All below Parents.
Add Children and Family Members - Option 2: Single Add
If your school only has a few children and/or family members and you'd like to get started quickly, you can use the Add New Child option found under ROSTER.
Here, you'll find a short form to add a child. First, select the school and class you'd like the child to belong to, then add their first and last name and birth date. Next, you can select their Educational Journey; your options will be based on which licenses your organization has purchased. If you have an Ignite license, you'll need to include a selection for game language.
On this page, you can also add a child photo. Photos are required for children to log in to play IgniteTable.
After clicking Continue, you can add optional fields like demographic information and family information.
After filling out the child's information, you can choose to Save and Add Another or Save and View Child.
