Logbook is best used as:
- A diary to record events at your service.
- Record information about administrative duties.
- To plan or schedule of upcoming events.
This feature will not automatically be turned on for centres as many centres will use Planning or Forms to record information previously recorded in the logbook. If you do require Logbook to be turned on, contact Educa Support.
The logbook is visible to all educators and staff members, although it is not seen by parents.
Setting Up the Logbook
You'll need to start by selecting your Logbook Template. Open the Logbook in the Tools menu and select Edit Logbook Template.
On this page you'll be able to add, edit and delete fields from your logbook. You'll also be able to change the question format to suit your needs.
Logbook supports only one template at a time. If you change a template field, data related to the replaced field will be lost. If you change the template, data related to the prior template will be lost.
Entries are kept in order decided by the left hand column - alphabetical for text fields, latest date on top for date fields. Therefore if you want your Logbook organised by date, place the date field on the far left side.
Adding Entries to the Logbook
Start by click Add Entry on your Logbook.
Complete all the required fields using the formatting options provided. Then click Save.
Once your entry is published, you can view the full entry by clicking Details.
