3. How to Flip Off for class

When you get to class, open Flipd and tap Class on the home screen. You can't begin your Flipd session until 5 minutes before class begins. If you try to begin too early, you'll get the error message like the third image below.

When class is about to begin in five minutes or less, or if it has already started, tap the FLIP OFF button and confirm by tapping Flip Off again. The Flipd lock screen will appear and begin counting down the class session.

Taking Attendance 

If your professor is using Flipd Attendance, Flip Off first and then tap Check In to be counted as present. You'll need the correct attendance code of the day to successfully confirm your attendance. You can check in at any point during the class to be marked as present.

4. How to stay Flipd Off

Staying Flipd Off for the lecture means that you remain in the Flipd lock screen until the timer runs outYou can still lock your phone and set it aside, but if you open your phone and attempt to leave Flipd to check something you will get a notification to remind you that you have 10 seconds to return. 

Tip: If you don't come back to Flipd within 10 seconds, the timer will expire. You can always start it again, but every minute you spend outside of Flipd will be measured in your progress.  

Pro Tip

To stay Flipd Off for class, simply Flip Off your phone, lock your screen, and set your phone aside until class is over. Each time you open your screen, check your notifications, or leave Flipd during the countdown, you run the risk of ending the Flipd session.

The point is to help you develop more intentional phone-use behavior, and this skill will help you in other important activities — like studying, writing, working, and even spending time with friends. Find out how you can also use Flipd outside of class to stay focused while you study!
