Under events you can view an event or create a new event.
When you view an event you will see a calendar with all the events you have created. By clicking on an event you can see the details of the event as well as any students who have been invited and whether or not they are attending. You also have the option to add other students to the event.
On this page you can also add "Notices" for students to see. Simply click "New Notice" to add your message.
To create an event fill in the details shown below.
You will need to select a start date/time & end date and time when filling out the date & time box. You can use the rich text editor in the event description & location box. This is useful to say create a link to an event, or to make text bold.
A public event is one that appears on All Students events pages, and each student can click ‘Accept’ or ‘Decline’.
A private event will only appear in the student's events tab when you invite them. You will usually be creating private events.
If you tick “show on Media Manager” the event will be advertised on the media screens you have. If you don’t have Media Manager as part of your Career Central package please contact support for more information.
Once you save the event you will see the screen below. You can now select either a single student or a group you have previously created (e.g. all students interested in Otago University or all students interested in Hairdressing) and invite them to your event.
When you click "Add a group to the event" you will see the list of groups which have been created in Career Central. You can create groups in the group/search section.
Once you have clicked "Add Group to Event" you will see this page:
You should edit the message (email) and text message to describe your event. If you don't want to send a text simply untick their cellphone numbers.
Your students will get an email and text invite. They can click a link in the email to get more information and are able to accept or decline your invite straight from there.
Alternatively students will need to login to Career Central to accept or decline in their events tab. Once they respond you will see their responses when you look at the event on your calendar.
You can create a group from the event, by selecting the statuses of students you wish to include in the group, and then pressing create group. This feature is useful for sending a message to students. The group will then appear in your group/search area.
ATTEND: Students that are marked as Going to Attend within the system.
ATTENDED: Students that are marked as having been to the event within the system. (If they are listed as Attend and the date of the event passes)
DECLINED: Students that are marked as Not going to the event within the system.
INVITED: Students that have been Invited within the system but have not responded to the invite.
Again there is more information about inviting groups to events under the Groups/Search tab.
