This needs to be much shorter.

Apart from getting all students to use the tiny URL can this not be changed??

It would make it more parent letter friendly

The idea of the secret view is "security by obscurity", ie. it allows a way to provide access to a view without people having to log in, but while still not comprimising the privacy of a student's work. That is why it is called a 'secret' url. The problem with making it short/easier, would be that it would also be easier for somebody to guess urls and access views they are not supposed to.

I guess a better 'parent friendly' approach is for the parents to have logins and the students can then share the views with them - but that also comes with its own set of problems wink
