Online School Training Support

These remote zoom sessions are provided to give our school customers access to relevant, regular and frequent online training sessions. They are free to attend* with, on average, a capacity of eight people per course.  You may "send" as many  staff to these sessions as you wish, and you may attend more than once on any particular session as a refresher for as long as these courses run. All sessions are recorded and will be accessible on our help website following the event. The URL of the help page is provided to you during the training event. All participants are encouraged to give feedback throughout the sessions and all attendees are provided with an attendance certificate for each course.

Note: If earlier events are full, you will probably find further sessions for the same course later in the month.

All registrations will be verified to ensure correct details and to ensure security.

*For schools with an ongoing support subscription

Managing Menus

This session, intended for intermediate users, will introduce to the concepts of website menu management. All sites have menus and these are at the heart of navigation for your website. Without menus, visitors will never find your pages! It is helpful therefore to understand how to create new menu items for new pages as you add them, as well as how to hide/remove menu items that are no longer needed and also how to move menu items around.

Using Publishing. Where and When!

Using Publishing. Where and When!

Note later start time!

One of the most useful, but often overlooked (and sometimes incorrectly used) features of your website is the  Publishing  system which it offers. Publishing allows us to decide the date and time when selected content will be published, or unpublished automatically in future. Publishing allows you to create time-sensitive content before you need it, and so, you can publish it while you're still in bed or on vacation.

This session  will show you where and how to set up publishing features  across your website.
