While a student can always visit app.enrichingstudents.com to view the most current schedule, some schools find it helpful to "push" a schedule to their students at the beginning of the day, or when a significant or even "last minute" schedule change has occurred. If the students have a valid email address that will accept emails from an external source, an electronic calendar entry can assist.
Under Admin > Manager Students, the option exists to send students their schedule for a specific period, for the current day:
All available periods will be listed in the dropdown box, but appointment files are created only for one period at a time.
An appointment created on the Schedule page will be recreated in the recipient's calendar:
Schedule Page Entry
An ics file will be generated and sent to all students with appointments.
Google Calendar entry
The attached .ics file will create an entry in their electronic calendar.
How is the time of the appointment set?
As can be seen in the example, the calendar entry is related to a specific time slot. This is done, not at the appointment level, but as a property of the period in which the appointment was made.
When creating an appointment on the Schedule page, a key step in the process is the selection of the period. If there is only one period, there is no selection required as all appointments are created in this default period.
To set the "time" of the period, you visit Admin > Manage School Periods.
The time settings that you establish will become the calendar entry times for the appointments that are created in each period.
In the following example, there are start and end times established for 3 active periods, so any appointments created for these periods will have calendar entries that correspond to these times.
