What is an Action?
Actions can be used as reminders or to inform staff of tasks that should be completed to improve on areas of development or self-improvement. These can trigger email alerts (if enabled), and allow staff to post updates to show progress on completing their actions. For example, actions could be created to arrange peer observation, uploading relevant resources, improving a lesson plan based on feedback, etc.
Further information on setting up email alerts is available in the following article: Enabling Email Alerts.
Enabling / Disabling Actions and Preferences
To enable or disable actions and other preferences, click Admin > Settings > Preferences > Account tab. You can switch actions on or off by clicking the respective Hide/Show toggle. Disabling other preferences such as Class Context and Filters hides them from both the Records and Reports areas (for Filters, this would also include any Year Groups / Course Levels and Focus Groups).
|You can also enable/disable Class Contexts or Filters for specific Template Types instead, for more bespoke setup (via Admin > Templates > Template Types)
Enabling actions will add an ‘Actions’ area in the top of Observe for you and your users. For more information on adding actions, feel free to take a look at the following article: How do I add a new 'Action'?
