Overview

Calendar Event searches can be used to find contacts who are registered for an upcoming appointment on a calendar, or who were registered for an event in the past. Please note that this search criteria does not track if someone actually attended an event - only that they were registered for it. You would need an attendance sheet at the event, and then manually mark the associated calendar checklist item as complete in bulk from the saved registration search/report. Attendance can then be searched on by using the checklist item complete search criteria.



How to Create a Calendar Registration Search

To get started, click on the Search & Reports tab at the top of your SchoolAdmin site.

To search by a calendar event, you will set the following criteria:

  • Search criteria type: "Calendar Event".

  • Select specific calendar from the list.

  • Select "is scheduled" or "is not scheduled".

  • Select the desired date or range to search from the list of options provided.

Please note: "Week" date options are defined as Monday through Sunday.

Appointment & Schedule Fields

After you've set your calendar search criteria, you may want to display appointment details and/or schedule information. To do this, click on 'Change/Display Columns' in the upper right of your search results and then scroll to the 'Calendars' field grouping within the list. Next, click on the + sign to expand the calendar you'd like to report on. You'll see a list of available event fields that you can select and add to your report.

  • Appointment Contact Fields: These are used for all event registrations through forms, public calendar links, and checklist item registration.

  • Internal Note: This field only displays to Admins when booking a contact for an event through the Admin side of the checklist. Parents will not see any content entered in this field.

  • Schedule Appointment Text: This is an optional field that's available for each schedule so that you can set customized text or messaging for each schedule. It's also available as a merge field that can be added to your event emails.

  • Schedule Name: This field displays the name of the schedule.

  • Schedule Video Conferencing Link: This is an optional field that's available for each schedule so that you can set a custom video conferencing link for each schedule. It's also available as a merge field that can be added to your event emails.

  • {{calendar_name}} Date: This field displays the appointment day, month and date, and start/end time.
