Draft Watermark

Support > Online Guides > Administrative Guide > Draft Watermark

A "Draft" watermark appears on documents when printed until each document is marked complete (with few exceptions for ongoing documents such as progress reports, as well as forms that require majority parent input).

Displaying a "Draft" watermark on documents until they are marked complete helps districts better communicate to parents and other team members when a given document contains all required information and signatures, especially when meetings are held remotely.

It also helps districts enforce document life cycle best practices:

If a district wishes to disable "Draft" watermarks, an administrative user must visit Settings > District Information > Details, and check the "Disable" checkbox under "Draft Watermark".
