If you want to, you can have Loops automatically start and end the loop for you. You do that by choosing dates in the pop-up window once you have clicked Start loop. This feature is mainly here for those of you who work with distance education and plan a series of several loops during, for example, a year. As a leader you can then prepare the loops with dates and invite your participants. They will then gain access to the correct loop on the date that has been decided. If you work in a classroom where you meet your students face to face, you will probably not use this feature to the same extent.
