What is Qlix?
Qlix was established in 2017 with the mission to empower teachers globally by providing a platform that enables them to plan, deliver and collaborate on their lessons, anywhere in the world. Currently, we offer an online planner which enables teachers to create and timetable their classes, create and share lesson plans, create tasks and reminders and take meeting notes.
Qlix is a digital version of a paper planner. This digitalisation of your planner brings multiple benefits such as:
- Your lesson plans are accessible and available whenever and wherever you are, plus they are automatically backed up
- You are easily able to reuse previous lesson plans and share lesson plans with others
- It is easy to change and rearrange lesson plans, tasks or reminders without your planner becoming messy and confusing

I’m unable to plan lesson for a future term as my class does not show on the diary page?

It is possible to view the currently added terms via the ‘school’ tab within settings, this also displays the name of the school ambassador.

The tablet and mobile apps can be used offline, it is not possible to use the web app offline. Updates on the tablet and mobile apps are saved locally and are sent back to our server once a connection has been re-established. However, as these updates are only stored locally, it is not possible to view these updates on another device or the web app until the original device has reconnected back onto the internet.
What happens if Qlix is down while I am in a lesson?
Our servers are located in multiple locations across the globe so if one server is down the app will automatically connect you to an alternative server. For there to be any app downtime, all our servers globally would need to be down at the same time. Of course, you can always print out a physical copy of your lesson plan beforehand.

Our database is backed up daily. This backup is also stored remotely from the data center, in case of any physical damage to the data center. We are able to restore our data from the backup within an hour. If you are concerned about data loss then we encourage you to create a personal copy of your data by exporting your data on a regular basis.
