Creating flex activities and adding them to periods

Teachers who are enabled to add activities to periods can create their own activity templates and specify attendance restrictions.

Minga FlexTime streamlines your school's Flex period management with an intuitive, user-friendly platform. 

Conveniently create your own FlexTime activities and add them to the FlexTime periods set up by your school. 

It's a breeze to assign compulsory activities to students or allow them to choose. Plus, FlexTime activities can be adjusted to limit the number of seats available and to cater to specific user identifiers.
