Image Max Height

This will determine the height of your pictures when you upload them.

Image Max Width

This will determine the width of your pictures when you upload them.

Image Size

This will manage how large of files you can upload into the software. By default we only accept 1 MegaByte, but that can be over written. This setting is in Bytes so 1,000,000 = 1 Megabyte. Internet based files should actually be much smaller and increasing the file size will also increase the time it takes to load a page. The quality of images will not be any better by increasing the size as the internet can only display 72 dpi (dots per inch)

Login Notes

This is the message that will be shown to students when they login just below the user id and password fields. It is a good opportunity to assist you students with their login credentials. If you uploaded birthdays as their passwords and selected that option in the upload file, we recommend that you use the Use default date password text. This is a message we created to assist you students with entering in their password.

This is most useful when starting a new election and finding out that all your students can not login because the instructions might not match the user names or passwords that were uploaded.

Require Reset Message

If you are requiring students to change their password and using student E-mails this message will instruct students where to go to fix any issues with their E-mail validation
