What is the Activity Feed?
The Activity Feed provides you with an overview of exactly what has been happening either in your individual house or your full school over a period of time. You will gain insight into what has been logged for student wellbeing (pastoral), attendance (rolls), late returners (passes), when it is a student's birthday, and any notes (such as duty logs) that the staff has shared.
An easy way to grasp the concept of this feature is to think of the Orah Activity Feed like Facebook's Newsfeed.
Accessing the Activity Feed
Note: Previously, the activity feed was a tab nestled under Unify. Since it was a widely used feature, we wanted you to have easier access to it. We have moved it out of Unify and placed it as a separate tab in your left navigation bar.
In the left-hand navigation, select Unify and then Activity.
At the top of the iOS app screen, click the three lines.
In the menu, click Unify.
At the bottom of the Unify screen, select Activity.
And you'll be at the Activity Feed:
Filtering the Activity Feed
Navigating your school's activity feed is easy with the filter options.
Click on any of the listed events to only see events of that type and to view detailed information.
You can also select the 'All School' button at the top of the Activity Feed to limit your view to events related to a specific house.
Finally, you can adjust the date range to see all events logged within a specific time period.
Adding a Post to the Activity Feed
Depending on how your school chooses to use the notes function of the Activity Feed, you may be required to leave notes such as Duty Logs on a daily or weekly basis.
To add a post, select 'New Post' at the top right of the Feed.
When creating a post, you can choose a template from the bottom if one has been created for the post type. (Continuing with the duty log example, an Admin may create a template with the specific information prompts.)
You can also adjust when you want a post to appear on the activity feed, giving you the option to retroactively or proactively add notes visible to other staff members.
Finally, you'll add a title and body for the post and click 'Share Post' to add it to the Activity Feed.
