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, select Admin in the navigation in the 'Manage Staff and Students', and choose Manage Students. From here, select the button that says 'Advanced' at the top right of the page.
Manage Can Self Schedule
One box you will see is the 'Manage Can Self Schedule' box. This box will allow to you set which students you want to to enable to self schedule. It will also show you how many students currently have permission to self-schedule at your school, and how many cannot.
There are two options for you to set. In the first drop-down, you can choose whether you want to activate or de-activate self scheduling for students.
In the next dropdown, you can choose whether want this to apply to all students, or only students in a specific gradation year.
If you select 'By Graduation Year', you can then select the specific graduation year. 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.
