How Do I Track Activities on ClassTag?

Updated on January 18th, 2017 by

Tracking Activities

When you create an activity, you need to be able to track the relevant information about that activity easily. ClassTag has you covered. One of the best things about the ClassTag platform is that you always in control and have complete visibility into everything that is going on. We deliver this information when and where you need it in an intuitive format on the Homepage, Activities page, and on the Stats page as well. 

 Home

Our platform collects and analyzes information across different sections in your class and draws your attention to the activities that are not fully and properly addressed by parents yet.  On your homepage you will see a section indicating upcoming activities, and any activities which require your attention:

  • You will see how many members of the class have RSVP'ed that they are attending an event, how many are attending your Parent-Teacher conference and whether everyone has seen your announcement.
  • You always know what is still needing to be done and what is already under control of your responsible and enthusiastic class parents.
  • Attract Parent's attention to a specific event right away. Take a step when you notice it needs to be taken. No time is wasted, and no idea is lost. Click 'Take Action' next to the corresponding activity and send a new message specifically about this one.

Please note! Only activities that don't have all slots filled, have low seen ratio or number of RSVPs will come up in the "Activities need your attention" widget on the home page. You can see at a glance everything that is coming up in the next seven days right underneath it. 

 Check Your Activities

The Activities page is where you can see all the details of each activity in one concise location.

  • To see which families have and have not seen the details of an event, click on the link in the lower left of the Activities item which says how many families have and have not seen the event. 
  • To see who has responded to item and volunteer requests for a specific event, click on "Show more" next to any related requests for that event.  
  • When viewing related requests, you can assign someone to a task by clicking on the plus in the circle for the available slot and selecting "Assign someone else", then selecting the available person from the list of those not signed up.
  • For events with an RSVP, click on the link in the lower left of the Activities item to see a list of who has RSVP'ed.  

Bonus: Activities are not limited to the ClassTag platform only. Everyone in the class can sync activities from ClassTag with your other calendars. Add important activities there by clicking 'Add to calendar' in the little wheel next to the activity itself and they will appear in your Google account, Apple iCal, or Microsoft Outlook.


 Review your stats

Stats page gives you a view at a glance at your parent engagement. Are parents reading what you have to say? How are they participating? This tab is automatically updated with each activity you and parents take and is good to take a look at regularly to ensure no families are falling behind. 

Got more volunteers than you need and want to select the ones who actually come?  Or want to ensure you invite parents who haven't had a chance yet to volunteer? Check the stats page and find out how many times each family has volunteered.  You can also see their RSVP history and should you need to do so, you may click 'Take Action' next to the family to email any parent or caregiver.
