Universal Capture 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.
To enable/disable Universal Capture features
- Log in as an administrator.
- Click the Settings icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.
- From the Settings menu, select Institution Settings.
The Institution appears at the top of the list and is selected by default.
- On the right side of the Institution Settings page, click Features.
- Scroll down to the Universal Capture sections of the page. There are three main toggles, as described below.
- Enable or disable each toggle as needed.
- Click OK on the confirmation message that appears.
Universal Capture Toggles
Administrators can also enable or disable downloads of Universal Capture: Personal for Students. This option resides in the Institution Settings > Features toggle list, as a sub-toggle to the Student Library option. Because Students uploading UC: Personal captures to Echo360 requires them to have access to their Library/Content Home, the ability for students to download the installers also requires the Student Library option to be turned on. For more information, see Enable or Disable the Student Content Library Page.
|Simplified Sign In||Enables users to log in to Universal Capture within the desktop application itself (rather than an external browser) to simplify the login process.
OFF by default
Simplified Sign In is not the recommended setting (especially if using SSO), it merely provides a simpler login workflow for users.
|Universal Capture: Online||
Enables access to the Online interface, allowing for remote monitoring and control of managed UC devices from the room card for administrators and, if provided by an admin, from a URL for instructors.
If the Ad Hoc Capture Button for Instructors is also enabled, the confirmation message when generating an ad hoc capture will also include a Check Capture button that will launch the UC: Online UI.
|Instructor Cancel Button||Provides a Cancel button, allowing the instructor to cancel a scheduled capture, but ONLY if they are the identified instructor for the capture schedule.
OFF by default
