HCA uses the rSchoolToday Activity Scheduler to manage our complete school calendar—including our academic and athletics calendars and everything in between. Filter by category, view by month or week, subscribe to text notifications, sync calendars of choice with your own personal calendar (Google, iCal, Outlook, etc.), or get the mobile app (iOS, Android). There are many ways to make it work for you!
If you’re intimidated by the breath of information on the calendar, don’t panic! With a few clicks you can filter out what you don’t need at the moment. And with a small investment of time, you’ll have a wonderful system that will simplify your life for months and years to come! Just follow the steps below to get rolling.
The calendar defaults to Week view. To see the whole month at-a-glance, click the Month button at the top-right.
Then click the event for more detail.
Want to limit the number of events appearing on your calendar? Use Categories to narrow them down.
Hint: Academics is probably the go-to category for you if you’re hunting for general school dates (like what is printed on the annual academic calendar at-a-glance). For fun/social events, select the Community category.
If you’re looking for a particular event and want to jump to it quickly, or to create a customized calendar to sync with your own (Google/Apple/Outlook/etc.), click the View Schedules tab, select the Activity/Activities for which you want to see all scheduled events, and click “View.” This will bring up a pop-up modal with a list of all events for the activities you selected.
To subscribe to (i.e., sync) this set of schedules, click the Subscribe link at the top-right of the pop-up window.
You can also easily setup text and/or email notifications for any and all activities you choose. To set these up:
NOTE: One fabulously useful feature is the Scheduling Change Notification option. That way anytime there is a scheduling change you will be automatically notified!
