Enabling "Block Rules Only" Mode

This article is intended for IT Administrators.

"Block Rules Only" Mode is a Classwize configuration intended for schools using a filtering solution other than School Manager. Block Rules Only prevents teachers from creating “Allow” rules in Classwize by hiding the “Allowed” option from the Add new rule dialog, leaving “Blocked” as the only available option.

NOTE
When you enable Block Rules Only, the Bypass Code and Reward features will be unavailable. This is because Bypass Codes and Rewards will not work without Allow rules.

To enable the Block Rules Only mode:

  1. In School Manager, go to Configuration > Classwize.
  2. Scroll down to Advanced Configuration and select the Create Blocking Rules Only check box.
  3. Select Save.
