To initiate a request name in Vision, open the Vision dashboard, select any students you wish to request the names from and then click the request name button at the top of the screen (in the administration tab on Vision 7 or higher).
The selected students will receive a prompt for them to enter their names for 30 seconds. To change the duration or the prompt, check the Vision preferences in the tools menu or the file menu on Vision 7 or higher or Vision Pro.
The request name feature is intended to be used on a session basis only. You will lose this list of requested names when you restart the computer, change classrooms etc.
