MyConferenceTime can automatically close conference sign ups on the day of conferences. This will prevent last-minute registrations that could negatively affect a staff member's planning.
Staff members can log in to MyConferenceTime using Google Single Sign On! Instead of having a separate email address/password combination to log in to MyConferenceTime, use the "Sign in with Google" button on the log in page to quickly and securely log in to MyConferenceTime.
We are excited to offer the option to log in using Google so that using MyConferenceTime is now even easier.
MyConferenceTime is pleased to announce that ClassLink now integrates with MyConferenceTime.
With this new feature, schools that use ClassLink can
Schools using MyConferenceTime with ClassLink will not utilize a MyConferenceTime password. Staff members log in using ClassLink Single Sign-On (SSO) which automatically logs the staff member in to MyConferenceTime. No separate MyConferenceTime password!
And when a school syncs MyConferenceTime and ClassLink, the school no longer needs to import a separate list of teacher names using spreadsheets. Instead, MyConferenceTime gets the list of teachers directly from ClassLink's rostering service. After the sync, the school's MyConferenceTime administrator simply approves those staff members who are permitted to log in to MyConferenceTime.
MyConferenceTime added a quick way of viewing/printing a report of students who are signed up for conferences. Using the Schedule Summary, MyConferenceTime admins can view/download/print a list of the students who are signed up for conferences on one schedule, a few schedules, or all schedules.
School principals and counselors often need a way to view all students who are signed up for conferences. It's still possible to search directly on the site or download a spreadsheet of all conference information, but this new option provides a fast method to view student names, conference times, and parent names in a printer-friendly format.
MyConferenceTime now supports schedule-specific read/write privileges for staff members.
Scenario 1: If a staff member should not be able to see the names of students on a specific schedule, the staff member's rights for that schedule can be set to "hide student names." Yet the same staff member can have "read/write/delete" permissions for other schedules.
Scenario 2: If a department chair needs editing permission for schedules belonging to 3 teachers in her department, the department chair can be assigned editing permissions for the 3 schedules (similar to having admin rights for these 3 schedules) but have standard permissions for the other schedules at the school.
Permissions for specific schedules override the account-wide read-only, staff-level or mid-level privileges that each staff member has by default. Admins are not affected by schedule-specific permissions.
MyConferenceTime now has the ability to prevent specific email addresses from signing up for conferences. If you need to "blacklist" an email address so that it cannot be used to register for a conference, please submit the request to MyConferenceTime using a support ticket.
