This article applies to:  Echo360 Instructors

The Echo360 Mobile App is fairly intuitive, but this article is provided as a quick reference for how to find certain features in the App. It includes links to other articles with more details about the linked feature.

After logging in, you get a list of sections in the current term. Tap on a section to see the class list. The class list is separated into dated and undated classes. If the section does not have any classes without dates, you get a single list of classes.

To reorder the class list by date, tap the Reorder icon in the top right corner above the class list. This changes the order of classes to ascending or descending by date.
For Undated classes, this reorders the list alphabetically.
