Home Page

The Home page contains a quick view of the daily Schedule as well the Newsfeed for the user. The Schedule initially shows the most current entries for the day, but this can be expanded to show all entries for the day. Below this, the Newsfeed displays as the user would normally see on a computer. Newsfeed posts are visible on a mobile device however, it is not possible to create or edit a post and priority settings are not taken into account when displaying the Newsfeed posts on a mobile. Users will be able to view only their own Newsfeed on a mobile device.

The Schedule

The Schedule will display all entries relative to the user on the selected date, the same as it would on any other computer or device. For students, selecting a class entry will allow them to view any important information logged against that class such as Lesson plan, location, teacher, and so on. For staff members, accessing a class entry from the schedule will allow them to mark the roll as well as view Teacher or Lesson plans.
