Staff members sometimes are unable to view the names of students on his/her conference schedule after logging in. This is often a result of the staff member having multiple MyConferenceTime accounts.
Admins now have the ability merge staff accounts so that a teacher's multiple accounts are merged into one, creating a smoother log in process and eliminating the issue where a teacher logs in yet can't see his/her own conference schedule.
Previously only MyConferenceTime Support were able to merge staff accounts, but now any account admin can merge accounts for his/her staff.
Schools that use MyConferenceTime like to customize the look of their conference schedules by editing the colors and uploading a school logo.
MyConferenceTime had (and still has) the option to upload a logo that will have a MyConferenceTime watermark on the logo. As of today, account admins can choose to upload a logo that does not have the MyConferenceTime watermark.
Of course we'd like for you to include "MyConferenceTime" text, but we're no longer requiring it.
MyConferenceTime allows account admins to download a spreadsheet (CSV format) of participants. We have improved the download ability so that admins can select specific schedules to be downloaded.
To download the student information, log in as the admin, then go to Summaries -> Schedule Summary.
Previously, admins had to download all student information and then filter it in a spreadsheet application if they wanted information for specific schedules. Also, the download had been available from the Summaries menu; it is now accessible from the Schedule Summary.
MyConferenceTime sends email confirmations (and frequently sends email reminders) to participants who register for appointments.
When a participant unsubscribes from MyConferenceTime email, MyConferenceTime will not send any confirmation emails. If you accidentally unsubscribed, you can use this webpage to resubscribe: MyConferenceTime Email Resubscribe
Starting today, school staff have the option to restrict parental access to a conference schedule based on email address. Only parents with a pre-approved email address are permitted to view the dates/times on the schedule and then sign up for a time slot on the schedule. (We still offer the additional option of preventing access based on a password.)
For schedules that have this restriction in place, parents must first verify their email address before they can view the available dates/times and sign up for a conference. Once the email is verified, the parent can sign up for a conference. Entering an approved, verified email address does not permit the parent to view student names on the schedule; as always, the ability to see student information is only for school staff.
We previously announced that virtual conference fields are available for schedules and individual time slots. We are happy to announce today that a virtual conference field is now available for staff. This means that a staff member (or admin) can enter a URL for a virtual conference in MyConferenceTime, and that URL will automatically be associated with all of that staff member's schedules & conferences.
Staff can add their own virtual conference information on the "Your Account Info" page:
Admins can add virtual conference information for staff on the "Staff Summary" page:
