  3. In the far right of the Settings, click on “Pair with Observer” to create the code.
  4. The “Pair with Observer” window opens providing a 6-digit code of capital and lowercase letters.   Note: Take note of the code. If you are unclear about letters, specifically the letters i or l, you can click “OK” to repeat step 4 until you get a different code.

This code is only good for seven (7) days and for a one-time use. If both parents and/or guardians want to pair with a student, the student will need to create another code.
