Creating Events

The Schoolzine System allows you to easily create and share events with your community.

You can share these events through the Schoolzine Calendar, Noticeboard, and DIY Newsletters.

Adding an Event

  1. Log in to your Control Centre and select the Events menu tab.
  2. Click the + New Event button.
  3. Fill in the Event Name.
  4. Apply a tag to your event. This will allow your community to easily filter events in the calendar or DIY newsletter. You can select multiple tags for an event.
    Note: If you would like the event to appear in the Noticeboard section of your newsletter, you will need to apply the noticeboard tag.
  5. Select the Calendar you wish the event to appear in.
    Note: Unless you have more than one calendar set up, the only option available will be School Calendar.
  6. If you wish to link the event to a DIY Newsletter or a Stream select the relevant option from Linked Newsletters or Linked Streams.
  7. Select a Start and End date for the event. You can also choose a time for the event or set up a recurring event.
    Note: After the event has expired it will no longer display.
  8. Fill in any other required information, including Event Content such as Images or Flyers, Event Location and Contact Person as applicable.
  9. Once you have saved the event, you will be able to view it on your calendar or in the Noticeboard section of your newsletter.
