 +==== Reset Number ====
 +The **Reset Number** feature is available on the //​Desktop//,​ //Keypad//, and //Matrix// views. On the //Matrix// view it is titled **Reset Pick Up IDs**.
 +
 +When this check box option is set, the next number entered will be designated as not having been called on the current day. Presumably this is used when a number is entered in error to change the status from having been called for dismissal to no longer having been called. Applying a reset to a pick up ID number that has not been entered on the current day logs the transaction but has no other effect as the number as the students were already in a state of not being called for pick up.
 +
 +This use of this feature should be minimized whenever possible due to the asynchronous operation of the entry function as compared to the display screens. For example, if a pick up ID number is entered incorrectly the screen in the classroom may display that incorrect information almost immediately depending upon the timing of the entry as compared to the time that the classroom screen refreshes. In these instances if the number is reset only a second or two later the display in the classroom may continue to show the student call for nearly 20 seconds until the next classroom screen refresh. During that time the teacher may release that student from the classroom only to see on the next screen refresh that the student name no longer appears for dismissal (because it was reset). Meanwhile the student has been walking the hallway toward dismissal only to discover that other displays show that he or she has NOT been called for dismissal.
 +
 +Teachers and students will begin to distrust the validity of the information if this condition occurs frequently, in particular if the administration does not properly remedy the root cause which is errant entry by dismissal staff.
