Enable or Disable Features for the Institution
Last Updated: Aug 16, 2019 04:59PM EDT

This article applies to:  Echo360 Admins

Some Echo360 features can be turned on or off at the Institution level. When disabled, the features that users would normally see and which are described in the Online Help, are not available.

Institution-level feature toggles are accessed by clicking the Settings icon - it looks like a gear and is located to the right of your name at the top of the Echo360 page. Then select Institution Settings. The Institution is located at the top of the list on the left and is selected by default.

The Feature Toggle switches are segregated into two tabs:

  • The Features tab list all the settings, categorized by type, that affect the entire institution.

  • The Section Features tab lists the settings that affect things like downloads and Q&A at multiple levels, down to the Section level (configurable by an Instructor) if "Allow overrides" is checked.

  • MOST of the Section Feature toggles are also configurable at the Organization or Department level. Select the Org or Dept from the list on the left to configure features for that level of the hierarchy.

IMPORTANT:   All features described in the topics linked below are available to enable or disable at the institution level. Some are also available at lower hierarchical levels, including, organization, department, and section. Understand that enabling or disabling a feature at a higher level also sets the default for that feature at the lower levels; use the Allow override checkbox to determine if the setting can be changed at a lower level.
