1. How do I add a discipline / activity?

First go to the"Activities" module and click on "Main Activities".

Now click on the green button "Add activity".

Attention! When you add an activity, it will be visible in the list of activities for all groups (it will not be scheduled in the calendar, it will only be displayed in the list on the left side of the calendar). To change this, you must edit the activity and change what groups have access to the activity (to find out how to edit an activity, see below - "How do I edit an activity?").


If an activity is used in several groups / classes, for example if there is an activity called "Mathematics" and it is used in grades V - VIII, it is NOT necessary to create a new activity from the "Main Activities" page for each group / class and thus have 4 duplicate activities with the name "Mathematics", it is enough to add it only once and make it available for the groups / classes that need to use it.


Name the activity, choose a "color", choose an "icon" and select "Attendance" to be active if you want the attendance for that activity to be counted (* attendance for the activity is not related to the daily attendance, that is done from "Check-in" in the mobile application or from "Presence and Daily Report" in the WEB platform). Choose a rating type - "badges", "smiley faces" or "grades", finally click "Save".


2. How do I edit a discipline / activity?

Access the "Activities" module and click on "Main Activities".

Now you just need to find the activity that you wish to modify and click on the grey button "Edit" situated on the same row with that activity's name.

After clicking on the "Edit" button, a window will open where you can change which groups will have access to the activity, name, color, if it is an activity visible only for teachers ("Staff only"), if it is an individual activity, type of evaluation (badges, smiley faces or grades from 1 to 10), if attendance is necessary and if it has a price. Also here you can find the delete button to remove it from the list of activities.

To find out how to modify a scheduled activity in the calendar so that it becomes a public activity (meaning there is no teacher assigned to it) CLICK HERE.


3. How do I schedule an activity in the calendar?
