If you find sub job assignments are being accepted without you doing anything, it may seem like SubAssistant is accepting them automatically, but neither SubAssistant nor EasyAccept™ will accept jobs automatically as neither system is even programmed with this capability. What can cause this to occur is another software or app on your device is accessing the job accept web link included in your notifications. 


This can occurs if you are using an email address provided to you by your employer to receive email notifications. Many email systems used by school districts have security software that will scan each email message received and access each web link included in the message to check for malicious content. SubAssistant can't tell the difference between a human accessing a web link and an automated program, so when that security software checks the web link, it triggers SubAssistant to accept the job. 


Another way this can occur is if you're using a text messaging app that shows a preview of the web link included in the message. We've noticed this happens with the Messages app installed by default on Samsung Galaxy smartphones and on the Android Messages app. We recommend disabling web previews in your text messaging app. 


Disable web preview in the Samsung Galaxy Messages app:

  1. Open the Messages app
  2. Tap the three-dot menu (top-right)
  3. Tap Settings
  4. Tap More Settings 
  5. Tap the toggle next to Show web previews to disable


Disable web preview in the Android Messages app:

  1. Open the Messages app
  2. Tap the three-dot menu (top-right)
  3. Tap Settings
  4. Tap Automatic previews
  5. Tap Show only web link previews so the toggle is disabled
