New Features

  • Schedule Classes: All class types (manual and automatic sync) can be scheduled. When scheduling a class, the teacher can set the start time and days of week for the class in addition to the class options normally available when starting a class manually.  When enabled by the administrator, the class schedule function can be configured on the Class details tab.

    The administrator can enable or disable the ability to schedule classes in System Settings.  The setting can be disabled during holidays or other days when school is closed to prevent scheduled classes from starting automatically.
