Updated over a week ago

Note: Schedules are currently in Early Access. If your school is not part of this yet, don't worry, it is coming soon!

The student schedules feature unlocks tons of capabilities, including teachers having their current class roster on their home screen, faster pass creation since students and teachers won’t have to select an “origin” anymore, and teachers can look up where any student is currently located.

If you are an Admin, head over here to get started adding classes to your school.

Accepting Synced Classes

Step 1: Begin by heading over to the Classes dashboard. Here you will see all of your classes to set up.

Step 2: You will need to indicate what room the class is held in and click Accept to get started.

Step 3: You will be asked to enter the date(s) and time(s) for the class. Hit Save when you are finished. If you are unsure of the date/time details you can find this in the prior step by hovering your cursor over "more details".

Step 4: You are all done! Now this class will show up on your home screen. At this point, you can set up your remaining classes.

Benefits of Adding Schedules

After classes are set up, you will see the current period and class on their homepage. You can quickly create passes for students in your class, see students that are coming and more.

If you want to look up where a student currently is, you can just search for a student and SmartPass will tell you their currently scheduled room.

On the student side, they’ll see the current day and when they create passes, they won’t have to select their current location.

Adding a Class Manually

If your school is manually creating classes, or the sync does not include every class in your building, no worries, building a class is easy! Head over to this article to learn more!


SmartPass will not let me accept classes, what do I do?

This means your admin has not given permission for you to do so, please reach out to your admin team for guidance.

What happens if some classes are not set up and some are? Will my school still be able to use SmartPass?

Yes, no worries! For those students without a class set up for the current period, pass creation will still function, just students and staff will not have access to the information containing the current class the student is in, meaning they will have to select it manually. Staff will see a message prompting them to correct this issue.
