I'm still stuck!


  • In the current covid situation, we are desperately trying to show parents on their child's calendar if the lessons are live, remote or digital detox.  The only we have found so far is that teachers can change the room name to LIVE, REMOTE Or DD.  But this does not show up for the parents easily on the whole calendar but I think does on daily view (and possible the child's calendar?)   Having this show or a way to email their child's timetable easily to parents with this info on would be helpful, as our parents are trying to ensure they are prepared for what and when their child is learning on line.

    Need a bit more flexibility or a solution asap.

  • Hi Penny, thanks for your comment. I'm afraid we wouldn't advise running your digital/remote classes through Arbor, as all students who are not physically present on site due to the school being closed should be marked with the X code, regardless if they are attending online classes.

    As such, there wouldn't be an easy way to get this to show for guardians on their calendar. If you wanted to share printable timetables, you would need to download them (shown here:, then send them via a mail merge - a process similar to what's shown here:
