The 'Enable Home Access' on your Roster tab allows teachers to invite parents to use the home version of Epic with a free 30-day trial (this button does not give the family access to your educator account at home).
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.
Note: The 1st month is 100% free and parents can cancel anytime (to start the 30-day free trial, a credit card will be required).
*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.
