The "Guided Mode" can also be activated and deactivated with MDM via AbaClock Monitor. The variant mentioned in the article should only be used in exceptional cases, for example for offline solutions of AbaClock 3.
Activation in iOS Settings
In order for the AbaClock time clock to work around the clock and so that all other iPad applications are deactivated, 'Guided Access' can be activated in the iOS settings (up to iOS12.x) under "Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access".
Under iOS13, the setting can be made under "Settings" > "Accessibility" > "Guided access".
With Guided Access, only one app is enabled on the iPad at a time, and which features are available can be controlled.
The following settings, when "Guided Access" is activated, are relevant for working with AbaClock:
Guided Access is activated with this setting.
A six-digit code must be entered to deactivate Guided Access.

You must also set the "Auto Lock" under "Display & Brightness" to "Never" to prevent the iPad from going into Standby mode in Guided Access.
