Enable Calendar Screen

The first aspect to enable is Enable Calendar Screen for. Here, you need to select the user groups that you would like to have access to the calendar screen (icon) in Edulink One’s user interface. The user groups that you can select from are All Employees, Teaching Staff, Learners and Parents. Moreover, the information for each of these groups changes based on MIS data, which means that when SIMS information updates for these user groups, this data will be available in Edulink One.

Additionally, you have the option to use fixed user groups within Edulink One to limit the scope of the users that have access to Calendar, such as SLT.

Selecting Calendar Categories

After enabling the Calendar screen for your user groups, you must select the types of SIMS Categories (calendar events) for learners and parents and employees. Using the arrows to open the dropdown menu, tick all of the boxes next to the categories you would like to include in the relevant calendars for the different user groups.

The categories correspond with dates in SIMS, for instance, Bank Holidays, Exams and Assessments, Staff Training Day, etc…

Disable Adding Events to Calendar

Moreover, you can choose to Disable adding events for specific user groups, e.g. parents. This prevents them from manually adding their own events to the Calendar.
