5. DPA Enhancements

We highlighted this last month, but it’s pretty cool so we’re doing it again:

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

  • 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.
