When permitted, students and/or instructors can be allowed to extend their lab instance via the pencil icon next to the lab timer. When the icon is selected, they will be presented with a calendar to set the new expiration date for their lab. The maximum amount of time that the lab can be extended is configured on the Organization that owns the lab profile. Once a maximum extension time is set, a drop-down menu in the lab profile will have three options to select who can extend their lab. The options consist of:

  • Not Allowed
  • Allow only instructors to extend lab expiration
  • Allow users to extend lab expiration (includes instructors)
