Key features of the current version:
- Filter events by category and activity type to create your own personalised calendar
- Handle standard and extra-curricular events
- Receive news feeds
How to Use the App
At the bottom of the screen there are four tabs:
This can be viewed in two ways; as Month To View or List View. You can switch between these views using the icons in navigation bar at the top of the page. On the centre left is a small calendar icon and on the right is a small list icon.
When using the Month To View and one of the dates is marked by a dot, this indicates that there is an event on that day. If you tap on that date, you will see the event appear below the calendar. Tap any event to see more detailed information and a map of the event location (if applicable).
In the List View, you can scroll through all events, in date order. Again, you can tap any event to see more detailed information and a map of the event location (if applicable).
You can even import an event into your personal calendar from your app, if you select the import icon. Please note that if an event is altered in this calendar it will not change the details in your personal calendar unless you re-import the data.
Shows all the latest stories from your school or organisation. If you tap on any news item you will be able to see more detail.
If you have a filters tab at the bottom, this gives you the opportunity to only see those calendar items that are relevant to you by selecting the Departments and Activities the app will display.
In this tab you can share this app with family, friends and colleagues via Facebook, Twitter and by Email.
