The tutor can then select the activity he/she wants to mass students to by double clicking on it. The message on top of the ID Entry box will change to indicate the mass sign-in mode. The mass sign-in class and tutor’s name will appear in the message:

AccuSQLAccuTrack will sign the tutor in. Students can now sign in by simply entering their ID number. The class and tutor are automatically selected. To end class sign-in, click on the “End Class Sign in” button. <note>Only students who are already in the AccuSQLAccuTrack database can sign in while in class sign-in mode. New students are not allowed while in this mode.</note>


When the tutor who activated a class sign-in session signs out, AccuSQLAccuTrack will display this box: The tutor can keep the default session end-time, which defaults to one hour, or he/she can adjust it and click “Done”. AccuSQLAccuTrack will sign the tutor out and will also sign out all the students of the class sign-in session.

You can password protect the End Class Sign in Option in the Users » Setup » Student and Tutor Pad Options screen.


When you create Seminars in AccuSQLAccuTrack, there are settings for the date and time when the seminar starts and when it ends. Using those settings, a tutor can initiate the Seminar Sign in for the seminar. 30 minutes before the seminar is set to being, it will automatically be available in the Seminar Sign-in Pick list. To initiate the Seminar sign in, login as a tutor and then select the Seminar Sign In button from the Tutor Pad: Any seminars that will be starting within a 30 minute window will be available from the pick list. Select the seminar students will be signing into and click OK. You will be returned back to the Main Sign in Screen with that seminar selected. Students can then sign into the seminar by entering their IDs. If the student tries to sign in and is not registered for the seminar, they will get a message indicating they cannot sign in. <note tip>Since the AccuSQLAccuTrack station will be locked down while the seminar sign-in process is active, if you need to register a student for the seminar “on the fly” so they have the capacity to sign-in, you can open a second AccuSQL or AccuTrack, login as an admin and then go to Seminars » Seminar Status to register the student.</note>
