Events allow your students another opportunity to use their points. Events can be schoolwide (School Events) or offered by an individual staff member (My Events). Events can be created to redeem (deduction), qualify (goal met with no deduction), or reward (earn points for attending).
Why is this important?
Staff members with Store/Events Admin permission will be able to create an event for the entire school or by grade level. Every user will be able to manage their own “My Events.”
How do I do this?
To create an Event, choose “Events” from the left-side Main Menu. Then, select the edit button for “Edit School Events” or “Edit My Events,” depending on the type of event you want to create.
Use the green “Create Event” button to add a new event.
Establish the event details and choose “Save” (make sure to select the “Show In List” checkbox if you want the event to be visible on the register screens).
There are three types of events that can be created:
- Redeem – Students will spend points to attend. This type of event will deduct points.
- Qualify – These events do not deduct points from the student totals. Students qualify by earning the required points in the grading period, or the year. The students do not need to have points available in their balance.
- Reward – Attendees will earn the specified number of points.
