A child's various activities can be added to Dayshare. These can be added singularly, to a selection of, or against all children!
You can view activities which have been added so far to child/ren in Dayshare by selecting the room/s you wish to view, and even filter further by all or a particular activity.

Within here you can create your activity template/s to use when adding activities to children.
1. Enter an activity template name e.g. Outdoor Play.
2. Enter the activity template description e.g. Playing in the garden.
3. Click the plus icon to save.
Editing an Activity template

2. The details will appear in the activity template title and description to be amended.
3. Click save.
Click the cross icon under the save to cancel this action.
Deleting and reactivating an activity template
To delete or reactivate an activity template, this can be completed by clicking on the More icon, then Settings.
To delete an activity, simply select the trash can next to the activity you wish to delete. This will move the activity template into the Deleted Activities section.

Assigning activities to children
When you first go into the activities screen, you will be guided to click the plus icon next to the showing activity drop box. This is how you first choose the activity you wish to assign!
1. Select an activity template from the Template drop field. The name and description previously saved will be displayed.

3. Update the start and end time and click save!
This is now ready to be assigned against the child/ren.
With the activity displayed, click on the plus icon against each child you wish to add to the activity from the "Children Not Included" list. Click the plus icon in the Children not included header to assign the activity against all children.
You can change any start or end time for each child's activity by simply clicking on it, and a photo, or even add an individual note to the activity!
Adding images to activities
If you wish to add a photo to share the moment you can click the camera next to the individual child, or for a group photo, you can allocate to all by uploading the photo in the header against the activity. Any child with this activity assigned will then also be assigned this photo. The photo will then be sent as an attachment to the Dayshare email!
