This "Enable Home Access" feature allows teachers to invite parents to use the home version of Epic! for free for one month without entering credit card information (this button does not give the family access to your educator account at home).
The parent does not need to enter a payment method to activate the account, but at the end of the 30 days, if they want to continue using the home version of Epic!, then they would need to select a subscription option and enter payment details.
How it works:
- The teacher inputs the parent's email address next to his/her child's profile and the parent will be sent an invitation email from the teacher (this opens a new home account under that parent's email*, with a free 30 day trial)
- Once the parent receives the email invitation, tap on the 'Get Started' button
- Parents are directed to their Epic! account information page, tap on the "Start Now" button to start their Epic! account
The mobile app version of Epic! has the teacher dashboard formatted differently from the website, and it does not have the "Enable Home Access" button. However, it does have a field for the parents email in each student profile, and adding an email there on the mobile app will also send the email invitation to the parent
*Please note if there is already an account on the parent's email address or an email that was previously used to register for an Epic! subscription, then they will not receive the email invitation to create a new account on that email.
