How teachers can approve pass requests with a pin

Updated over a week ago

Hey Teachers! This guide will show you how to give the thumbs up to your students' pass requests using a special approval pin.

Wondering where to find your Approval Pin? Easy! Once you're logged in as a teacher, just look for the gear icon in the top right corner of your screen. Click on it, and you'll spot the Approval Pin option.

Click on Approval Pin to discover your unique pin. You can stick with the default one or switch it up to a new 4-digit pin that suits you better.

Now, let's talk about approving passes with your Teacher Pin. When a room has restrictions, students can request a pass to visit that room. However, you need to give the green light on your end for the passes to become active. You can do this easily from the students home screen in SmartPass or on the kiosk.

Select the pass you want to approve and then enter in your pin on the students device.

And then click "Enter Teacher Pin"

And then voila!

You can also approve the pass on your device by clicking on the pass and clicking Approve.

Quick tip: Keep that pin under wraps! Don't share it with students unless you want them approving passes to your room. But if that ever happens, don't stress. You can change your pin as often as you like. Easy peasy!
