We're kicking off the school year by releasing some highly anticipated features!

Contact Tracing Students

If a student tests positive for COVID-19, it's critical to determine which of your students may have been exposed. Stay ahead of the spread to instantly trace back any students who had a pass to the same room at the same time. Interested? Book a demo →

Pass Search Facelift

When you land on the new Explore tab, it will instantly show the latest passes in your school. We’ve made filtering 10-times faster, as well as adding an Origin filter. In the next few months, we’ll be expanding the new Explore tab to give you deeper insights into your school’s pass activity.

Accounts Refresh

We’ve completely redesigned the account tab from the ground-up to make it easier and faster to find key information about students, teachers, admins, and assistants. You can hide and rearrange columns, change account roles (make a teacher also an admin), and quickly change account passwords. Interested? Book a demo →

Account statuses are now more robust with the ability to disable, suspend, and delete accounts directly from the accounts page.

Bulk-Uploading Accounts from a Spreadsheet

If you want to add a lot of Standard accounts quickly, you can now bulk-upload the accounts with a spreadsheet. This is especially useful for schools just starting out with SmartPass and smaller schools.

Love SmartPass? Share it with your friends at other schools!

SmartPass has always been dedicated to helping our schools. Thousands of schools are planning their return to campus, and many are looking for methods to handle students in the bathroom. Also, many schools don’t even know a digital hall pass system exists!

All you have to do is tell your colleagues or friends about SmartPass. When schools you refer sign up, we’ll send you some SmartPass T-shirts and stickers, as well as a digital badge in the SmartPass app. Learn more →

Last school year, we made SmartPass faster and more stable. This school year, we’re making it more powerful and bringing tons of new features. In the next few months, we’ll be releasing a new Android app, a smart way to hide passes on your dashboard, and a new integration with Clever. With tens of thousands of students using SmartPass every day, we’re working around the clock to make school reopening as easy as possible. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
