Using the student filters
Often parent conferences and events are set up for a particular year, or class of students. Your system also allows you to create a more focused conference for certain students, or to create an event only available to be booked by specific students' parents. There are two ways to set up such a custom conference/event.
Setting up a conference/event for a list of students using Meet The Teacher
When setting up a conference as normal, after setting Basic Details click Next.
- On the Students section, click Add Filters.
- Select Students at the top of the add filter pop-up. Then choose those students you wish to have at the conference. You can use this filter in conjunction with the other filters if you wish.
For example: all Year 3 students, plus selected students from another year. Or all students in Registration Group 2B, plus a Custom Group of students, plus a single student that was unable to make it to an earlier conference.
- When you've selected all the students you would like at the conference, click the Close button at the bottom to add the list of students.
- Click Next then proceed with the rest of the setup as desired.
The process for setting up an event is the same, with a slight difference in the order of the steps.
