So! You’ve had a play around with the Sample spread and tried out the various features of the system, now it’s time to get started 🙂
Whether you are inviting your yeargroup to log in and add content, or if you are adding everything on their behalf, it’s a good idea to set a few things up first. Once you have added these, you will be ready to create profile pages.
- Adding profile questions: Think about how to best represent the fun your yeargroup has had. Ask many individual individual questions (e.g. In Year 7 I was…) or a general question (About me, or Message to the year).
- Adding profile groups: Add individual form/house groups or one group for the entire year. Add separate profile groups for teachers/staff members.
- Adding photo labels: Organise your photos with labels. Members can apply the labels to photos they upload, and editors can use labels to filter search results when adding photos to pages.
- Adding awards: Add award categories and choose from having all members as nominees, or adding a custom list. Members can vote online.
You can add/edit all of the above information from the set up tab or you can click the ? icon for additional help and resources 🙂 When you first start to use the system, you’ll see yellow prompts to help guide you as you get used to the system!
