1. DPA Enhancements

Streamlined Interface. Easier to use. New Features!

We have made it easier for students to access their DPA Log and Add Multiple, Repeating Activities!

  1. The Student DPA page has been redesigned.
    • First Time DPA Students will find setting up their Account and creating their DPA Log quicker and easier.
    • Returning Students will also be able to more quickly access their existing DPA Log.
  2. New Feature: Repeating activities!
    • Students can now select the days of the week and a date range for a repeating activity (similar to booking a recurring meeting in Outlook).
    • Students that participate in the same activity on certain days of the week  (e.g., Wednesday morning hockey practice) can now log the activity with just a few mouse clicks.
