Accudemia: How do I set a time limit on virtual sign-in links to stop student walk-ins in the evenings and weekends?

Introduction

Accudemia gives administrators the ability to set a time expiration for walk-in links. These are set upon the virtual sign-in link's creation and can be customized to end in hours, days, weeks, or months. This stops students from gaining access to walk-ins at certain times of the day, or specific days of the week like weekends. This article will explain how to set a link expiration on a new virtual sign-in link.

Step-By-Step

1. Navigate to Center Attendance > Virtual Sign-In.



2. Click the + New Virtual Sign In Link button.



3. Select a Classroom or a Center.



4. Scroll down to #3, "Joining the Virtual Session," then beside "Link Expiration" choose when the link will expire.


NOTE: If walk-ins are only allowed from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM, select "Hours" from the time drop-down menu, then choose "5" for the Link Expiration drop-down. Alternatively, if walk-ins are allowed any time from Monday to Friday, then select "Days" from the time drop-down menu, then select "5" for the Link Expiration drop-down.
