Working with the dashboard

As a School Administrator after logging in, the dashboard is the first page at which you arrive. The dashboard has a number of Alerts about events behind schedule or about to happen. Here we can see that there is one housing item that has not been booked and 10 transfers

If we click on the Alert item then full details of the Alert will appear. In some cases there will also be a blue link symbol in the right hand corner to take you to where this data is held in SchoolManager

The timing of appearance of these items on the dashboard is controlled from Menu – School Admin – Settings. You can find out more about Settings here.

Here is a short video showing how to switch alert items on and off and how to go from the dashboard to menu items and back.
