2. Use the big green “Add Class” and “Add Assignment” buttons to create folders.

NOTE: See separate procedure to reset TII’s default settings to NOT upload the file to TII’s permanent repository. If a file is saved to TII's repository, subsequent drafts will match the saved version.

9. Press “Go to assignment inbox” to await the result, or select “Submit another file.” TII’s analysis can take from 5–20 minutes, as a rule. Back in the assignment folder, if the “Similarity” field for the document lacks a percentage, TII is still analyzing. Update the number by either refreshing the page, or by clicking the column heads, which re-sorts the list of documents.
