  • MaxClass migrates to green servers

    Posted 14-05-2014, by MaxClass

    In the past week we have migrated all files on MaxClass to green servers run by GreenQloud in Iceland. Iceland is well known for its use of energy from renewable sources. All files like word, pdf but also images such as the pictures in albums have been migrated so the energy savings are considerable.

     

    For speed local caching servers are used to quickly serve the most used files.

  • New: Pinning classes and groups to the topbar.

    Posted 24-04-2014, by MaxClass

    As you know, MaxClass offers schools with one or more classes or groups. Most users don’t see much more than the one group they are a member of.

    If you’re a manager of several groups you might have noticed that you’re were getting more and more classes and groups stuck to your top bar.

     

    To help you organize the classes a bit we introduced pinning to the top bar. All you have to do, is click on a star to favorite a class and it will remain attached to the top bar. Click on it again, and it will be gone as soon as your leave that group.

     

    If you’re looking for any other group, just click on My Groups and you’ll see a new so called mega menu fold out and show all the starred and unstarred groups you are a member of.

     

     

     

  • New Licenses and features

    Posted 19-03-2014, by MaxClass

    Last night a new version of MaxClass was released and numerous things have improved.

    We have added is a really nice survey tool and added an RSVP function and numerous other improvements. We will be telling you about all the new features soon. If there are problems with existing features, please let us know via the feedback link at the bottom of the page.

     

    The licensing system has also been improved so that it is easier to know when a school has grown too much within a specific plan.

     

    As we announced last year, schools with a Max Free account will not be able to grow past three classes or groups. If there are more classes or groups, it is not necessary at this time to remove groups, but you will not be able to add any new ones. See the license page for more details.
