Hall Pass by Appazur


For high schools or middle schools with a BYOD policy, a 1:1 tablet or Chromebook program, or for any school where students are allowed to use their smartphones, Hall Pass by Appazur is a streamlined solution that's easy for teachers, eliminates paper notes, and includes powerful administration rules and reporting.

Hall Pass by Appazur is available as a stand-alone app in the App Store, and Google Play, or as an optional feature in a customized, school-branded mobile app (iOS/Android). The Hall Pass also works in a web browser and works well for Chromebooks (ChromeOS, Windows, and Mac are supported). If your school app does not have a Hall Pass icon next to the Account Settings icon, contact your account manager or Support to discuss adding this useful capability.

Using the App

Issuing Hall Passes

To maximize efficiency for the teacher, the Hall Pass is designed to be set up by the student. (Hall Passes can also be issued in advance via the Dashboard - see below.)

The student simply opens the app, taps the Hall Pass icon , and then chooses their destination and the length of time required. He or she then hands the device to the teacher for authorization.

The teacher enters her or his unique Hall Pass Key, either manually, or by scanning the QR Code as discussed below. Then tap Issue Hall Pass.

Both the student and the teacher will receive a push notification when the hall pass expires.

Authorization Key / QR Code

There are several ways to make the authorization keys available to teachers:

To make the process even more efficient for teachers who do not always have a mobile device at hand, we suggest printing your Hall Pass Key QR Code on a sheet of paper. In the Dashboard, find your Hall Pass Key as described above, and click on it. This will bring up a printable QR Code.

In the student's app, rather than typing in your Hall Pass Key, tap Scan and point the device camera at your QR Code. The app will detect the QR Code automatically and return to the Hall Pass screen with the Hall Pass Key field filled in. Tap Issue Hall Pass and return the device to the student.

Checking Hall Passes

Students can easily show their Hall Pass as required. They can keep the app open when they are in the hall and show the Hall Pass on demand, with the time remaining shown.

If the student does not keep the app open, they can simply tap the app icon, and a few seconds later a prompt will appear offering to show the current Hall Pass, if it is still valid. In this case, internet access is required.


Dashboard Access

Your school or school district will have its own App Dashboard for managing Hall Passes. (If you have a school app or digital signage, it's the same Dashboard.) The App Dashboard is a mobile-friendly web application that is also available from within your school/district mobile app, if applicable.

You can manually add staff to grant access, or staff accounts can be synced with with your Student Information System (SIS). Learn more.

Issue Hall Pass in Advance

A staff member can create a hall pass in the Dashboard, scheduled in advance. At the scheduled time, both the student and the teacher will receive a push notification.

Click Add (next to Hall Passes) in the Hall Pass block on the Dashboard home page, or on the Hall Passes page of the Dashboard.


Reports can be viewed, printed, or exported to an Excel or CSV file.


Administrators can generate a report for a specific date, student, teacher, destination, or any combination of those.


Generally, teachers will only see hall passes that they have issued themselves. However, to prevent Hall Pass abuse, teachers are able to see all of a particular student's hall passes, regardless of who issued them. To do so, a teacher should simply filter the Hall Passes page to view a single student.

Hall Monitor

Your staff can quickly look up a student's hall pass record and see if they have a currently-issued pass. From the Dashboard, click Hall Passes.

If the student has an active hall pass, it will be highlighted in green:

Admin Rules

With Hall Pass Administration Rules, you can set up an unlimited number of flexible rules to limit and manage the issuance of hall passes.

Each "rule" is made up of one or more "conditions" and one or more "actions".

For each condition (or combination of conditions) that you specify, specify an action(s). Typically, the action is Deny, but you can also choose Alert Admin. If you choose the Deny action, be sure to enter a helpful message that explains why the hall pass was denied:

Here are some examples of rule conditions you could specify:

Maximum Number of Hall Passes

Limit the number of total concurrent hall passes:


Deny (or alert) hall passes with a particular destination:

Destination Count

Limit the number of hall passes with the same destination:

Limit Restroom Duration

To limit the duration of passes for a particular destination (e.g e.g. five minutes for the restroom), select the action, "Override Duration" as shown below. Regardless of the duration that is requested, the student will receive a five minute hall pass.

Student Conflict

Prevent two specified students from getting a hall pass at the same time:

Student Destination

Prevent a specified student from getting a hall pass to a particular destination:

Limit Hall Passes per Classroom

Some schools want to help teachers ensure only one student is allowed out at time. Options:

  1. The teacher can use the Hall Pass Dashboard page, which highlights in green all the active hall passes issued by the teacher.
  2. If you have Personalized Class Schedules, the hall pass system will know which class a student is currently in.
  3. Otherwise, the easy way to do this is to just limit the number of current hall passes per instructor as shown below. (Be sure to tell students to End their hall pass when they return to class.)

Admin Rules Trial / Testing

Want to try an Admin Rule without rolling it out for everyone? Just add one or more teachers to the rule so that it only applies to hall passes issued by them, as in the example below. Add a "Sub-Condition", choose "Any", and list the instructors to whom the rule should apply:
