To do this for a learner, go to the Learner Details section in a Learner Summary and scroll to the BKSB Username field. If an account has been created for the learner, their username will be displayed here. If not, select Create bksb account for learner.
This will first check whether the learner has an Email Address recorded and does not already have a bksb account. If either of these checks fails you will be shown a window explaining the issue.
If the learner passes both checks, the window shown below will open instead. This displays the Name and Email that will be linked to the learner’s bksb account.
To finish, select Create In bksb. This will send an email to the learner inviting them to create a bksb account along with their Username and Password. The password sent will depend on what you have set as the Default Password in the bskb Summary.
If your learner already has a bksb account in PICSWeb, you can link this existing account to the PICSWeb record rather than creating a new one. To do this, go to the Learner Summary and select Actions > EditLearner Details.
In this window, enter the bksb Username to match the username for the existing bksb account and select Save. Any functional skills data will then be downloaded to this learner record from the bksb account.
