New SharePoint 2010 features for education. SharePoint School Calender part 2- editing
Yesterday I showed our SharePoint 2010 School Calendar which helps simplify communication of all key school dates within a large educational institution. Today I wanted to show how easy it is to edit the calendar using the out of the box SharePoint functionality. On the Learning Gateway the calendar can be seen by any administrator with a series of tabs (see below). These allow the user to enter assemblies, activities, assessment schedules, meetings and planned staff absence from school.
By selecting one of the tabs the administrator will be faced with a very simple editing box which appears in browser and can be seen below.
Details can be quickly inputted into the form and appear immediately in the calendar within the correct category. Although this is a very simple SharePoint solution its impact on a large school is enormous. This ability to access constantly changing information is also enhanced with additions to the calendar showing in red when added after the 1st September.
