As an admin, you are able to set advanced options for students, that will enable them to self schedule, or to send a school-wide password to all students.
Logged in as an admin, click 'Settings' in the navigation. From here, select the button that says 'Advanced' at the top right of the page.
Manage Student Self Schedule
One box you will see is the 'Manage Student Self Schedule' box. By checking the 'Can Self Schedule' check box, you will enable students to self schedule. In the drop-down, you can choose whether this will be all students, or students in a specific graduation year.
If you select 'By graduation year', you can then select which graduation year to set that students may self schedule. Click 'Save', and these changes will be made.
Set Passwords for All Students
The 'Set Passwords for All Students' box, allows you to set one password for all students school-wide. This is helpful for the beginning of the year, to make it easy for all students to login with one password. However, for security reasons it is strongly recommended that you encourage students to create their own password once they are able to login. Click 'Save' to make these changes.
Email Unscheduled Students
To quickly email any students who are unscheduled for one or more flex period, use the features in this box. Select a date range, and the period or period(s) you want to email students for. This will alert them that their schedules are open, and they need to be scheduled for appointments.
Limit Number of Days Students Can Self Schedule
Some schools may not want to allow students to self schedule at any time. These limits can be set in this box. Set a sliding window of time where students can self schedule. For example, as is shown in the box, you could set this window so that students wouldn't be able to schedule themselves for the current day, but could for the next two weeks. To learn about how this feature works in detail, see this document.
