Configuring Active Hours

Configuring Active Hours


Active hours establish the times and days during which a teacher can start and run a class. Although teachers and site admins can login outside of the designated active hours, they cannot start a class or interact with students.

Site Admins can set Active Hours for the entire organization in the Setting menu.

  2. Click on the menu at the top left and go to Settings.

  3. Select General.

  4. Under Active Hours, select Add Setting to create a new set of Active Hours and select Save at the bottom right. 
    To modify an existing set of Active Hours select the 3 dot menu and select Edit.

    2. Select your Time Zone.
    3. Select the stop and start date i.e. the start and end of the school year.
    4. Select which days Active Hours should be active. If there are day(s) of the week that school hours end at different times unselect the day(s) and select the plus sign next to Days Active to select and add a different time for the day(s). 
    5. Select the stop and start time i.e. when the school days start and end.
    6. Add excluded days such as holidays when class cannot be started at all.

    Only one Active Hours setting can be active at a time.

  10. To delete Active Hours click on the 3 dot menu next to the Active Hours and select Delete
