The Scheduling tab on the Portal Options page controls parameters for how students and parents access the Course Requests Entry page in the Parent Portal. The Scheduling tab displays options and date windows (per grade level) during which Parents and Students can update course requests, as well as other scheduling options. The Portal Groups of Parents and Students require Update permissions to Course Requests to update course requests using the Parent or Student Portal. The Portal Groups page can be accessed by clicking on the Portal Groups link on the Scheduling tab.
If checked, the option Allow Parents/Students to edit Alternate Course Reqs will allow Parents and Students to add Alternate Courses.
On the Portal Options page's Scheduling tab, two more Scheduling Options can be set to define how parents and students use the portal for scheduling purposes.
Hide Scheduling Results from Parents and Students - This option prevents parents and students from seeing preliminary scheduling results online. Parents and students will only see the Course Requests if they have permissions to View Course Requests.
Hide Currently Scheduled Classes For Future Terms from Parents and Students – This option will prevent any scheduled classes for a future term from being seen in the parent and student portals.
