If a Detention notification has not been set up in the notifications table, you will need to scroll to the bottom and press the + Create New Notification Rule button. However, if the notification for a detention exists, you can edit the message by clicking the pen icon in the Actions column.
Select the Event Type from the dropdown list, in this instance, Detention (learner added). Once selected, the page expands to reveal different fields for the detention notification. You can select from House Detentions, Lunchtime Isolation, SLT Detention, Lunchtime Detention, Heads of Year (detention), P3 Lunchtime (detention), as well as Unscheduled Detention.
Start Time After: This field sets the time for sending detention notifications if the detention begins after this this time. If the detention is set prior to the time set here, a notification will not be sent.
Firstly, select the message type. You can choose between Push, SMS (text), Email or Push | SMS.
The Template Body for your message can be customised for your school and you can select a limited range of variables when composing your message.
For a list of more variables, please see our article on the List of Edulink One Variables.
If you decide to make the message type an Email, you can customise the Template Subject in the field below the body message.
Next, select the recipients for the notification. You can choose the relevant staff from the dropdown list, and you can turn ON the notifications for parents, learners, Heads of Year and Form Tutors.
Lastly, in order to save your notification, you need to click the Save Rule button at the bottom of the screen.
You will return to the main notifications table where you need to scroll to the bottom and press Save before exiting.
