Reserve a Time Slot During Registration Process

When a parent selects a time slot, MyConferenceTime immediately holds that time slot so that nobody else can claim the time slot while the parent completes registration.

With improvements that we introduced in January, 2020, a time slot is held for a defined amount of time when the parent selects it. The parent can complete registration without worrying that the time slot will be taken from them. This process can be compared to a shopping cart system: the item (in this case, the selected time slot) is in the shopping cart and is held for the customer (i.e., the parent) until checkout (registration) is complete.

In the past, time slots were given to the person who completed student registration most quickly. Now, a time slot is held only by one parent as soon as the time slot is selected (much earlier than completing registration) so that registration information can be entered and nobody else can take the time slot.

If the parent does not complete registration, the time slot is released so that others have the opportunity to select the time slot.

We are pleased to make this feature available to improve conference registrations.

Three Minor Features Added

MyConferenceTime has three new features focused on helping administrators:

  • Find locked dates in the conference readiness checker (Summaries -> Are You Ready for Conferences?). Additionally, if a schedule has a locked date, a banner will appear above the schedule informing staff. Don't worry, the banner is not visible to parents.
  • View students who have conferences with multiple teachers during the same time slot. Using the Date Summary, admins can view a list of students who have conferences scheduled at the same time. (Don't forget that you can use the conference registration limits to prevent a student having multiple conferences at the same time.)
  • Find upcoming conferences for a student faster. When searching for a student, the initial report will show only upcoming conferences since this is primarily what schools want when searching. Past conferences can be viewed by clicking on "show past."
