  • New Calender Settings

    Posted 15-08-2012, by MaxClass

    We received some feedback from international schools that there were problems with date settings.

    These have been fixed!

     

    MaxClass offers a calendar, a calendar summary on the start-page and reminders. Each calendar represents only one time zone. So if the school is in San Francisco and you enter 14:00, it will still be 14:00 if you see it in Amsterdam, assuming you understand that the school is in New York. Week-overviews are sent on Saturday 14:00 GMT and daily reminders are sent at 14:00 GMT too.

    Each user can change the frequency in the user preferences (My info / Preferences / “Select which messages will be sent by e-mail”)
