An Activity is like a tag or file label for anything you would like to track that may not be set up on a calendar with registration or on a checklist. Some examples of actions that you might record as activities in your SchoolAdmin site are fees paid by check, phone calls with parents, packets mailed, etc. You can add, edit, and delete Activity Items within Settings – General – Activities. Activities can be seen on individual contact records as shown below.
