As an admin user, you can create Community events using the Community tab on the admin side of the site.
These events are similar to the events on the parent side but have a couple of extra features:
- You can invite the whole school to these events, as well as selecting individual years or classes.
- New joiners who join Classlist after the event has been created will automatically see the event on their events page.
- Non-members who have not yet signed up for Classlist but have been invited will also receive notification of the event.
This means that as soon as you have invited your class to join Classlist you can set up an event such as a Welcome Coffee, and it will be emailed to your non-members. Other new joiners to your class will see the event on their events page.
Events created on the 'Parent' part of Classlist are automatically private. That means only the people you invite will ever see it. So if you invite your class when only one person has joined, other people won't see it later.
Have a look at our quick guided tour to see how to go about setting up a new event.
You can also now collect payment for events via Classlist. See our articles on paid events:
