How to add lessons, menus or events to the calendar

Modified on Tue, 14 Jun 2022 at 03:19 AM

Calendar items inform parents about upcoming events, food menus, or lessons. 

Creating a lesson allows you to indicate and describe the different classes you teach to children on specific dates. 

Creating a menu allows you to specify the different meal types (solid food) and what time they are served to children. Creating an activity enables the addition of various activities to the calendar.

Follow the steps below to create a lesson using the Daily Connect app on an iPad:

  1. Navigate to Menu Calendar, then select the plus icon. 


  1. Select the plus icon then select Create lesson.

  1. Enter the dates on which the lesson will be taught in the From and To fields. 

  1. Enter the lesson title, then add notes.

  1. Select Add Document to upload supporting documentation.


  1. Select whether you want parents to be notified of this event then customize the notification message.

  1. Select Save

You can also choose to add a lesson from an existing course and lesson plan. A lesson plan consists of courses, each having lessons that can be placed on the calendar. For this, you first need to create a lesson plan using the Daily Connect web application.

Follow the steps below to create a menu using the Daily Connect app on an iPad:

  1. Navigate to Menu Calendar >  plus icon Create menu.


  1.  Select Multiple menu entries to make several menu entries for the whole week. 


Select Individual menu entry to create one individual menu entry for a specific date and time.

Or select Copy from last week to copy the menu entries saved for the previous week.

  1. a. If you selected Multiple Menu Entries, select the menus to create, then choose the days and times they will be served. Select Next.

Then, create the menu by entering a description of the food served for each menu type and for every day. Select Next.

b. If you selected Individual menu entry, enter the following information:

  • The date on which menu will be served

  • Menu title

  • Types of solid food that will be served

  • Notes

  • Notification permission and message (how the event will appear on the calendar)


Then, attach accompanying documentation, indicate whether parents should be notified of the new event, and select Save.

Follow the steps below to create an event using the Daily Connect app on an iPad:

  1. Navigate to Menu Calendar plus icon Create event.


  1. Enter the duration of the event in the From and To fields and indicate whether it will be an all-day event. 

  1. Enter the event’s title and event color. This is the color in which the event will be highlighted on the calendar.

  1. Select Add Document to upload supporting documentation.


  1. Choose whether parents should receive a notification for the event and, if necessary, edit the notification message. 

  1. Select Save
