Require Student E-mail

In this article, you will learn how to turn on the setting for Require Student Email.

If you want to add extra validation when students login for the first time, you have the option to force students to have an email address.

You can either upload an email address that you might have on file or you can let students add their own email address (system will prompt them at their first login).

On first login, if an email already exists in the file, students will view the same and will also be required to verify with an automated message from the system. If they are providing their own email address, same verification process will take place.

Settings - Require Student Email

  • If the Require Student Email says No here then click on the Edit button to update it. 

To access, click on the System Settings and select the tab for Voting.

You can select the radio-button to 'Yes' and click on the OK button to save the changes.


Note: When this setting is turned to 'Yes', the setting for Require Change Passwords is automatically updated as Yes as well,

Add Student Email

  • On this textbox, write the email address for the student and click on the OK button to save the changes.

    For students that do not have an email address, you can put a generic email address to bypass this setting.

Select the option for Edit Student against the student whom you wish to add or update Email address.

Import Students

On the upload student page you can upload Email addresses (optional by default) for your students. Just select the matching column on your file and decide if you want to overwrite the student email address if one already exists.
