Add requests on behalf of students

You can add a request for an Opportunity on a behalf of a student. This situation might occur if a counselor is meeting with a student and makes a request on behalf of the student in that moment. Or a group of students are eligible — or required to complete — an Opportunity so the request is made on behalf of all those students at once.

To make a request for an Opportunity on behalf of a student:

  1. From your educator account, click Features and select Work-based learning.
    Educator account in Xello, Opportunities selected from side menu
