What internet browser does Edval Daily prefer?
Edval recommends that Edval Daily is best accessed via the Chrome browser.
I am a customer who is interested in the Edval Daily web version. I am currently using the desktop version which I understand will no longer be supported in the near future. Can you please advise me who I should contact?
What details do you need from me to start discussing the implementation of Edval Daily?
Name of Daily Organiser
Daily Organiser’s teacher code (as is stated in your .etz file)
Daily Organiser's Email address
I would like to start using the SMS Casual Requests feature. What should I do?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our sales team members will contact you to make the necessary arrangements. Alternatively you can use the 'Contact Us' link on the Information page under the Casual Requests tab on the Daily home page.
You can add admin and casual staff in Edval Daily and include their email address by going to Admin > Users.
How can we bulk edit the teacher email address in Edval Daily?
Email addresses for permanent teachers must be edited in the etz file and synchronised to Edval Daily. Email addresses can be updated in the etz file via an import (File > Import Data > Teacher data). Email addresses for casual teachers must be edited in Edval Daily.
In the right hand Actions panel click on "Create role" to define the role as per your requirements.
For more information on roles and permissions see this article in our Knowledge Base:
Why am I unable to delete a casual teacher in Edval Daily?
You cannot delete a casual teacher with historical data however you can make them inactive. Once the data in Edval Daily is rolled over to a new academic year, historical data will no longer exist and casual teachers will be able to be deleted.
How do I update a permanent teacher to make them unavailable to take covers in Edval Daily?
There are two ways to do this.
How do I update a teacher to make them inactive?
Note that only Casual teachers and Admin & Support Staff can be made inactive in Edval Daily. Permanent Staff are unable to be made inactive, however, they will become inactive if removed from the etz file prior to a sync. In Edval Daily > Admin > Users, find the user who is to be made inactive and select the edit button at the end of the row. Select the Inactive radio button then the Save button.
A teacher who was in the etz file temporarily for term one is now inactive in Edval Daily after we synced the new timetable. How do I convert that user to be a casual teacher with the same code?
From term 2 another teacher will be doing the daily organisation.
I was wondering how they can have access to Edval Daily so they can do the day to day organisation.
Go to Admin > Users and select the edit icon for the required teacher
In the update users window select "Daily Organiser" from the ‘Roles’ dropdown.
In our file we have staff on LSL, long term sick leave etc who are returning throughout the year.
I have left them in the .etz file but that means they come up as available for relief as they don’t have teaching periods and appear free all the time.
How can we tell Edval Daily that even though they are in the file they are not really available to be given an internal relief?
In your etz file make sure you set these teachers to a 0 load, which you can adjust when they return. You can either mark these teachers as 'unavailable' in the etz, or in Edval Daily go to Admin>Users, select required teacher and click on the edit button, untick the ‘Eligible to cover classes’ checkbox and save. When viewing the list of users you will see ‘No covers’ in the Years column when “Show Daily Data” is selected. This is often used for Principals so they do not come up as cover options at all.
When I seem to to publish covers it seems to generate a daily bulletin. Why is this happening?
Pressing the Publish button on its own should not generate a bulletin (in the form of a downloaded version)
No you can not edit the event type list as these are set types and have very important business rules applied in the back end. There is currently no facility for adding your own event types either but the ones that exist should cover all of your needs.
Can we create groups in Edval Daily for when we create an event? Is it possible to add a group of people in the event directly?
No you can not create groups of teachers. They must be added individually or by faculty.
I would like to set up an event to include students across the school year groups. Can you please advise if there is a way to select individual students?
You can select individual students across year levels. In the Event set up screen, tick the box for Registered Event. You are then able to filter and select individuals. For more information on selecting students for events see this document: Edval Daily Selecting Students for Events
When cancelling/merging classes, we are unable to delete/remove a class that has been added. For example, tomorrow (18/4/18) we merged 1 too many classes (7MAT), but now we cannot remove them from the Covers list, which will confuse teachers.
I would like to enter events for next year. How can I do this?
I have created an Event for grades 5/6 - all students and both teachers.
Why does it require cover for 1 teacher and not the other?
And why does it require a cover at all, when all the students will be with the teacher at the event?
When selecting students for an event there are 2 main ways this can be done;
1. Selecting students by YEAR LEVEL
2. Selecting students by CLASS
When entering an event for all year 11 students and cancelling year 11 classes for the day, Edval Daily is also cancelling some year 10 classes. Year 10 students access year 11 classes and it seems Edval Daily is cancelling all classes with those year 10's in them as well as the year 11 classes. Is there a way to cancel only year 11 classes?
You can select
- the Year 11 students only. This will add all Year 11 students to the event and cancel all classes with only Year 11 students in them. Classes that have students from Year 10 in them will not be cancelled.
- the Year 11 classes. This will add all the students from all the selected classes to the event and cancel all those classes. Therefore, if any of the classes contain students from Year 10, those students will be included on the event and all the Year 11 classes will be cancelled, regardless of what Year Level the students in those classes are in.
- Edit the event
- Expand the tree in the students panel
- Untick the top level '11' box
- Tick '11 (whole year group)'
Any Yr 11 classes which have yr 10 students in them will now run, no Year 10 classes will be cancelled and no Year 10 students will be included on the event.
How do I set Events for fortnightly. - eg Hearing Support for students at a different time or day on an A week to a B week.
When I set up the schedule it offers daily, weekly or monthly. Or repeat every two weeks, but when I set every two weeks it still publishes it weekly. We run a fortnightly timetable.
As of the current behaviour :
If you select more than 1 day, it alternates between the days for each week i.e if you select fortnightly for Mon and Fri , then for the 1st week the event will occur on Monday and for the second week the event will occur on Friday..
In order to avoid this create 2 recurring events, one for each day.
This would be created as a supervision event. In Edval Daily go to Events > Create event.
Fill in the details as shown below, noting the Event Type = SUPERVISION, with one (or more) additional teacher and one (or more) additional room. This will create a ‘class’ for each period of the day to which a room and a teacher can be assigned. When it becomes known which students require supervision, they can be added by editing the event.
I noticed the ‘Pin’ option on the Covers page. What is it for and what are the benefits of using it?
This is used to pin a teacher to a cover, and if you subsequently hit 'Clear covers', it will not remove the pinned cover.
The classes for the current rotation are showing incorrectly in Edval Daily.
In the .etz file, check under File > Options > File > Current rotation (for E9) or Settings > File > Current rotation (for E10) to ensure that the correct rotation is displayed. Next, check in Edval Daily under Daily > Settings > Date Mapping that the rotation changeover date has been set.
How do I cover a Roll Call class with an internal teacher and not have it count towards that teacher’s extras tally?
I would like to merge two classes but the class I wish to merge with will not appear as an option? Is there a reason why this class is not visible?
Check the room sizes in your .etz file. Possibly there is not enough physical 'room' to accommodate the remaining students you wish to merge.
The Daily Bulletin from Edval Daily can be formatted as a pdf, xlsx, or docx and can emailed to staff directly from Edval Daily. See this document for more information: Edval Daily: Daily Bulletin and Day Sheet Generation
Is there some way of exporting an exam schedule to email or show other staff members
