Oct 22, 2023 (6.15) - Teacher Approved Hall Passes, FlexTime Pre-Registrations & Workflow Improvements, Oct 22, 2023

In this release, we made some significant improvements to our Hall Pass and FlexTime modules focusing on usability and time-saving efforts. Read below for details!

Release date - October 22, 2023

1. Create hall passes that require teacher approval

We’ve added a new setting that allows you to require teacher approval for specific hall pass types. This workflow leaves the hall pass creation in the hands of the student but provides an extra checkpoint before the pass is considered valid.

Teachers will receive pop up approval notifications and can approve or deny passes from the Hall Pass Dashboard. 


2. Updated Hall Pass and FlexTime Dashboards

Our dashboards in the Hall Pass Manager and FlexTime Manager have a new re-designed look and added functionality.




3. Find what you need more easily in the FlexTime Manager

You can now search by teachers or students in the Activities Tab and search by teacher in the Activity Templates tab in the FlexTime Manager.

4. FlexTime Check in and Assign improvements

We’ve made some improvements to how you check in and register students for FlexTime activities including:

  • Allowing you to register students for activities rather than only assigning

  • Allowing teachers to assign and register students to other teachers' activities

  • Improved assigning and check in workflow

  • Allowing you to register students during the check in process if they aren’t already registered

5. FlexTime activity cloning flexibility

When cloning a FlexTime period, you can now choose whether or not you’d like to include student registrations and assignments. This gives the flexibility to save the registrations and assignments if they are staying the same or start fresh with the registration process.
