[LON-CAPA-users] instructor-assigned slots

I have a related 	question. In my use of slots, I left the 'time that
students can no longer reserve blank'. However, I found that if the slot
'start time' passes, students can no longer access the slot to sign up, and
they also are blocked from the resource. Thus, in order to enable them to
access the resource, I had to delete the association of the resource and
wait for that to propogate so that they could use the resource. Fortunately,
this was for a computer location for an in-class assignment so it was not an

Would this be solved by setting the 'time that students can no longer
reserve' to the same as the 'slot end time'?

To assign an instructor-assignable slot to a specific student for an exam
you need to set the "Slots of availability [Part: 0] (available)"  
parameter at an Enclosing Map level for a particular student.

However, if there are more than a handful of students you might want to
create a group, and make those students who will be assigned to the specific
slot members of that group. Then you would set the "Slots of availability
[Part: 0] (available)" parameter at an Enclosing Map level for the group to
which they belong.
