Queue for rooms with a restricted number of passes#80

We are only allowing two people in a restroom at a time, but when there is an open pass, multiple students can request for that pass. Because of this, multiple teachers could accept the pass, which results in more than two students in the restroom. Once the maximum occupancy is reached, I would love to see either an alert show up for the teacher or a queue that is created in the order in which student passes were accepted. Once their spot in the queue comes up, the app can notify them.

Hi all, here’s an early preview of our pass queue system! Please discuss any suggestions below my comments on this wishlist item.

Couple of questions we have right off the bat:

  • Is 30 seconds enough time for the student to start their pass when they are next in line?
  • Any wording suggestions instead of “Queue”? Will younger students understand what a “Queue” is?

Another question:

  • For Kiosk Mode, would having students wait in front of the kiosk be acceptable? Would you want the students to return to their desk and wait for an sound? There would be a time estimate for when they can go.

Insted of “Join Que”, I think something along the lines of “Get in Line” would be more understandable for students.

Per the 30 second wait time, I think that is enough time, but I think the change from waiting to “start pass” should be even more obvious. Maybe have the color of the pass faded or grey, and then light up to the original color when it is ready to go active. (hope that makes sense) It’s been my experience that there needs to be a very obvious difference or teenagers won’t notice.

On Kiosk, I would not want kids waiting at the front of the room. Pending on how the teacher had the device positioned, the color change of the pass mentioned above may help with that.

30 seconds should be enough time, but once a student hops on the Queue, can they continue in another app with their work? How will they be notified then of their 30 seconds to start the pass?

Also, the emergency feature is good, but we do not like the idea that a teacher can move a student up in line.

Brian, those are fantastic recommendations. Once again, thank you for your input. Dan Bontempo

Love this! I think using “Wait in line.” instead of Queue would be helpful. I also think that if there is going to be a sound associated with the notification that 30 seconds should be enough. I also like how the teacher can move the student to the front of the line.

I agree with the other folks on here, I think “Wait in line” would be a clearler phrase to use, 30 seconds is enough time, the teacher “send now” option is great.
