Via the mobile app, this section is mostly an information-based area, however, the action of registering attendance can be done. The Events section below details the functionality of this feature.
You will only see and be able to manage students that you are a parent or guardian to.

Reach Events was created to provide an efficient management tool to organise, share, and manage recreation activities, excursions, or events being held by your school.
If your school has not added the Events extension module to your Reach portal OR the module is turned off, the configuration or viewing options will be disabled.
Via the mobile app, this section is mostly an information-based area, however, the actions of registering/managing attendance can be done here. It is designed to show the Events relevant to your associated students.
How to Navigate Events
Once you open the mobile app and log into your account, the home screen will present different ‘cards’ for you to access functions quickly.
If you can not see an Events card on your home screen, please contact your school.
Once Events is open, you will be presented with tabs across the top.
In this example, we are presented with; Discover, Calendar, and Events.
The Parent in this example has management access for four students, as can be seen by their names at the top, currently the discover section is showing the events available for the student highlighted red
Simply tap on another student to view their events
The first card that can be seen is showing a blue dot at the title, indicating it is an open event and the student ‘Can Register’
The current event shows the Reach logo by default as the event image
When an event is created by the school staff, an image can be added
Video files can also be loaded and viewable in the information section
If you scroll down, more event detail can be seen on the current card
If you tap on the event card it will open to reveal all available information as can be seen in the example image
To return, tap the return arrow in the top left
In the minimised or extended card view, the red buttons Decline & Register can be seen, simply tap as required
To tap either button will instantly activate that action, showing a pop-up to confirm
This area displays the currently registered events, which can be viewed and updated if required.
