Events in ClarionCall are assigned to Calendar Categories, which both identify the type of event and set its publication rules. A Calendar Category can be set to allow events to be automatically approved, or require manual approval for publication, and be set to display for parents or staff only in the public or private environment.

Calendar Sections and Tags allow events to be filtered when viewing the Calendar, allowing users to filter their view to only display relevant events.

How to set up Categories

1. Ensure you are logged in to the Staff Message Centre.

2. Click ‘Dashboard’ at the top of your screen

3. In the ‘Calendar Zone’ panel list item, click the ‘Setup’ tab.
