To work with assignments select the Assignments menu item under the student's picture / name on the left hand menu. The assignments can be opened from any page in GuidedPath and the contents will be continually autosaved. Both the Appointments and the Assignments can be open at the same time as well.
Select the New Assignment button in the upper left hand corner to create a new event. Complete the details on the right hand side including any attachments. New assignments will stay in the Draft state until the Assign button in the bottom right is selected. Draft assignments have a yellow tag on the left hand summary view and are NOT placed on the students calendar.
Assignment Data Entry Fields
Besides title, subject, notes and details, there is also an assignment due date/
When you enter a date in the first date box, the 2nd date box will automatically take on that value. If you would like your assignment to have a "duration", you can change the date in the 2nd date box.
For example, if you want your student to visit colleges over Spring Break, enter the 1st date as the beginning of spring break, and the 2nd date as the end of spring break.
Or, you can add in a "ACT Study Prep" period, with a duration starting a month prior to the ACT test.
Schedule the assignment
Once the Schedule button is selected, a new popup is used to select who should get emails about the scheduled event. Note that this list of users will also get any updates to the appointment. Other options to Delete or Cancel an appointment rather than to Schedule it can be found by selecting the down arrow on the right side of the Schedule button. Deleted and Canceled appointments are not shown on the calendar. Scheduled events have a green tag on the left hand summary view and will be seen on the student's calendar.
Once an assignment is Assigned, the list of notified users is at the bottom of the details for the appointment. Future updates are autosaved, but this list of recipients is only notified of updates when the Notify button is selected or the Complete box is checked off. The Notify button will turn blue when there is an autosaved change that might need an updated Notify.
The color coded tags can be toggled on and off by clicking on the headers under the New Assignment button. This allows a view of all or only assignments in a particular state. In addition, completed assignments can be included or excluded using the checkbox with the label Show Completed in this same area.
To add an assignment to a group of students, double click on the calendar once in a group mode.
