Editing Created Events and Roster Management
- Click on Event Management under My Instructor Tools.
After clicking on Event Management, a list of all previously entered events will be visible. You may sort by Event Date, Course, or Instructor.
Your event page will show the following categories:
- Your Event will be listed with the following view.
Under Published, you will see a Yes or a No. If you wish to change the designation, simply click on the word. It will change for you.
Under View, there is an Icon of a File. If you click on the File Icon, you will see all the details of your event, and if the event is in the future, you can even Edit the Event.
In the Delete column, you will see a small red X. If there are not any users on the roster, you can delete the event.
In the Roster Column, you will see an icon of a small green person.
- Click on the Roster Icon. On this screen, you can change status of an enrolled user from Enrolled to Attended or No Show (but not until the day of the event), Email Registrants, Print Roster, Print a Sign In Sheet, Add Non-Enrolled Attendee to Roster and view any Special Accommodation Requests.
- To change Status of an enrollee, simply click on the Status.
Change Status and click on Update Status. (Attended and No Show will not be an option until the day of the event.)
If you need to manually add a Registry User to the Roster, you can do this if you know their 9 digit Registry ID. Click on Add Non-Enrolled Attendee to Roster.
Add in the 9 digit Registry ID, and click on Look Up Participant.
If the correct Participant is returned, click on Add to Roster. If prior to the event, the user will be added to the roster with the status of Enrolled. If after the event, the user will be added to the roster with the status of Attended.
You now understand how to add an event and use the roster management function.
