Quick guide

When you open the application for the first time, you see a red screen with a quote about education and its author. This feature is optional; if you wish, in Settings you can choose if you want to keep this or if you want the Today view to appear when you open the app, as in the web version.

When we open the application, in the upper left side of the screen there is a button with three horizontal lines, which corresponds to the app’s main menu.

When you access the drop-down menu you find many options, such as these:

- In Today you can see the day’s courses sorted by time. Next to each group-class you see the three-people icon that identifies groups and that works as a shortcut to each of them.

At the bottom of the window you see the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow buttons, which allow you to check the previous or next day’s timetable.

- In Groups you can create and view all the groups you are going to assess (warnings, marks, etc.). These must be created for each level, group and subject.

In the main menu you only see the first four in the list; if there are more, you have to click on the Groups button of the menu.

When you access a group, you see the following options:

  • Students list: this option is located in the left side of the screen, under the name of the group. The students’ data can be imported manually from an existing group or massively with the import with Excel/spreadsheet or with the corresponding available option only in the web version.

When you click on the name of a student you can check their personal details and complete the following data: personal information, the groups they belong to, their notes, resources, events calendar (which allow you to see the events related to each student, such as a meeting) and the Actions.

This last section from the student’s individual menu allows you to:

  • Tabs to access assessment and other features: The upper tabs from the right side margin are those you use to enter the columns to evaluate your student. You can create as many as you need. We recommend you to create a tab per term, so that you can hide the tabs or the columns of the terms you have already finished or those you don’t need to view.

Below there are other fixed tabs that give you access to:

      •  Attendance: it allows you to create a column with a date and assign an icon to each student (attendance -a green circle-, absence-a red circle-, tardiness, justified absence, justified tardiness and expulsion) to keep track of their records. It is possible to modify the icons and their values according to your needs. You can do it in Mark types configurator, which you can access through Settings.
      • Lesson planner: You can write down everything you do in each subject, according to the program.
      • ere is a tab with a pencil icon that gives you access to Notes, where you can create notes related only to each group and its students.
      •  The next tab allows you to access the Calendar and events, an alternative way to create your program.
      •  Finally, users that have the multi-device version can access a fifth tab, which allows you to add Resources related to the group.

- In the upper right corner of the application you will find the three vertical dots menu. It allows you to make the following actions with the group:

  • Edit group: It allows you to check and edit the group data you defined initially when you created it, as well as to configure the class timetable and other options related to it.      
  • Sort items: It allows you to sort the tabs, the students, the columns and the attendance.
  • Import students: You can reuse the students’ list from other groups you have included in the application.
  • Copy tabs and columns: You can copy the same tabs and columns structure in other groups.
  • Export data (only in the app version): It allows you to export to CSV the following information of the group:
      • Students list with their personal information
      • Group marks (evaluations) list
      • Group attendance list
      • Group attendance list (only anomalies)
      • Class diary

In the web version you can also use this action, but in this case you’ll be able to export the data of all the groups at the same time. In order to do so, you have to use the Export Data option that is available in Settings.  

  • Contact with… allows you to send an email to a student or to his legal responsible.
  • Show hidden columns: allows you to view the columns that have been hidden because they were no longer necessary. 
  • Show hidden tabs: allows you to show the tabs on the right side that have been hidden because they were no longer necessary. For example, when an evaluation is over.
  • Show help explains how to use the app.

Right next to the menu there are two icons: a magic wand and a person sitting on a chair. The first one lets you choose a student randomly and with the second one you can arrange your students in the classroom with the seating plan.

- Timetable: Here you can check the complete weekly timetable of your groups and create individual events. The timetable is automatically configured when you create the groups and define their name, start and finish date, class timetable... 

When you press on any event you will be able to: edit it, create a note, add a resource or view the group directly; when it’s not a teaching hour you only have access to editing that hour or creating a note.

 - Calendar: It offers a weekly or monthly view, including in both cases all the schedule events and those that have been created manually in both sections.

 - Notes: All the notes created in the groups and assigned to students are shown in chronological order, but you can also create and check other general and independent notes.

- Resources: This feature is only available for the users with the multi-device licence, that is, the annual payment version. You can add any files in the application anytime to then link it wherever you wish.

Reports (option only available in the web version): It allows you to create very visual and customisable statistics and reports.

 - Help: You can check tutorials, videos and information about how to use the app.
