Updating your Snapplify Engage platform settings

This article runs through the options you'll find on your Engage Settings page.

This article is for ADMINISTRATORS. 💾

We've made it easy to customise your institution's Engage settings. This is where you can:

✅ Update your school name and logo.

✅ Set your library loan duration and maximum checkout time.

✅ Choose whether the purchasing of library books is Librarian purchasing or Patron purchasing.

✅ Set your default curriculum.

Activate your library content setting; i.e. choose whether you want learners to see the full library (including unpurchased content), or whether they should only have access to books your institution already owns.

✅ Enable or disable retail requests.

✅ Enable or disable hardcopy book purchases for annual prescribed book orders.
