1. First, join your Flipd class with the 5-digit class code provided by your instructor. Tap here if you don't know how to join your class.
2. Start using Flipd for your first class
Once you're joined in the right class, Flip Off by selecting the Class option on the home screen. You can only Flip Off within 5 minutes prior to when the class is starting or any time during. When class is active, you'll see the words: Join Now, then tap Begin to confirm.
For example, if your class is from 2-3 pm, you can Flip Off any time from 1:55 pm until 3 pm.
3. Check In for Attendance (optional)
Once you've successfully started your Flipd session, check-in with your attendance code if your professor is using Flipd attendance. Then, set your phone aside and avoid checking notifications in order to maintain your Flipd progress while the class is active.
No internet connection? No problem. You can still check in without an internet connection — just make sure that the attendance code you entered is correct. When your phone connects to the internet again, your attendance submission will successfully sync up Flipd.
4. How to stay Flipd Off
Staying Flipd Off for the lecture means that you remain in your active Flipd #Class screen until the class is finished and/or the timer runs out. You can still lock your phone and set it aside, but if you open your phone and attempt to leave Flipd to check something else you'll get a notification to remind you that you have 10 seconds to return. If you don't return, your Flipd progress for that session will end and you'll have to start over.
For example, If you don't come back to Flipd within 10 seconds, the timer will expire. You can always start the timer again, but every minute you spend outside of Flipd will be excluded from your progress.
5. If you're not in a Flipd Class yet
You can still Flip Off for class even if you're not part of a class yet. All of your time accumulated during the class period will be synced up once you've joined the class.
*Join a class as soon as possible, or send a message to Flipd Support if you have trouble.
6. Make the most of your experience
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 purpose is to develop more intentional phone-use habits — a skill that 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.
