'My Forms' EdSmart login for new parents of schools

This new login feature means that new parents can access the EdSmart Portal to create Parent Initiated Forms (PIF) – such as Enrolment Forms – even though they are not officially registered as Users of the EdSmart platform. 

Parents can choose from three options:

  • 'School Sign-In' – redirecting them to the School’s SSO login page

  • 'Create New Account” – enabling parents to create a new EdSmart My Forms account

  • 'EdSmart Sign-In' – enabling parents with existing EdSmart accounts to sign in to EdSmart’s 'My Forms' page and submit any forms.

This is only relevant for schools with SAML SSO.
