Make course passcode optional
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A passcode will only be a nuisance for short editathons. Let's provide a checkbox during course creation and in the details pane, disabling password protection. Longer-running groups might want to enable or disable this setting depending on stuff.

This has also been highlighted by Education Collab members. Thanks for filing this!

Also noticed: "Trying to change password makes field disappear. Unable to change/customize password." Cannot replicate this problem so I did not file this bug.

@awight: good first task tasks are self-contained, non-controversial issues with a clear approach and should be well-described with pointers to help the new contributor. Given the current short task description I'm removing the good first task tag. Please re-add the tag once the task description has been polished and provides sufficient information for a new contributor. Thanks!

Also this may not be easy at all if there is no obvious place for storing the "no passcode needed" flag (to quote from IRC).

This is done, and @Maudite put some final polish onto it recently. Blanking the passcode should work smoothly now for any program on P&E Dashboard (and it's now also possible to set 'no passcode' as the default for a Campaign).
