Google ChromeScreenSnapz073

Events have related attributes like:

  • Subjects – which are customizable by name and color (both event bar color and text color)
  • Types – which can specify the type of event (i.e.: lecture, homework, exam, etc.)
  • Levels – Can be used for both fixed grades (for a grade school teacher) or we recommend child’s name for homeschoolers.

One important feature is the ability to repeat a particular course event.  For example repeat my lab every Thursday at 9AM to 11AM for the next 18 weeks.  Any changes to this repeating event can then be made globally across all events saving you time.
