Introduced with Release Marts 2019.
It is possible to give participants access to different tools which they can use during a FLOWlock or FLOWmulti. In the lockdown browser the appendix manager will open in a new pane with the accessible tools and the participants can use the appendix manager to create and manage their appendices.
As a manager you have the responsibility to set up the flow with the correct tools. You can add and remove tools under the setting All participation settings.
Scroll down to see the available tools.
Check the boxes for each tool you want to activate on the flow.
FLOWlock: The appendices are automatically added to the paper and the participant can view them in the right side. Furthermore, the participants can choose to insert them to the paper.
FLOWmulti: The appendices are automatically added to the section. The appendices are to be found in the top right corner where the appendix manager is located. When the participant go to the next section it is possible to add new appendices to that specific section. In FLOWmulti the appendix manager will only be available on following question types: Essay, Math essay, File upload, Chemistry essay, Audio recorder and Video recorder.

Explanation of the different tools
Allow participants access to their own PDF notes: This setting allows the participants to view their own PDF notes stored on their device. Please note that they might also be able to preview other files when browsing for their notes to view in the lockdown browser.
Drawing tool: The drawing tool enables the participants to create drawings that can be inserted into the paper. Please note that if file upload is enabled, the participants can import images from their device and add drawings to them using the drawing tool.
Webcam: The webcam tool allows the participants to take pictures using a webcam. The pictures can then be inserted directly in the paper (Only FLOWlock). The participants can use this tool to add pictures of handwritten notes and drawings during the test.
File upload: The file upload tool allows participants to upload files from their devices. File upload can be combined with external ressources to enable participants to download files from external sites and then upload them as appendix material. Please note that enabling this will most likely make it possible for the participants to preview all files on their devices, but it will not make it possible for them to use programs or apps outside the lockdown browser.
Formula editor: With the formular editor, the participants can write TeX to create advanced formulas to be added as appendices.
If you hover over the tools with the mouse you will get a description of the functionality for each tool.
Note: When a tool has been activated it will be accessable for all participants on the flow. It is not possible to limit the tools to single participants.
Collaboration between author and manager
When an author creates a FLOWmulti assignment and uses following question types Essay, Math essay, File upload, Chemistry essay, Audio recorder and Video recorder a clips icon will appear in the top right corner of the question. The author can click on the icon and get an explanation of the appendix manager.
The authors have to coordinate with the manager on the flow who will activate the tools on the flow so the participants can use these under lockdown.
