Different colours on homepage timeline?
Does anyone know how the colours work on the homepage timeline? Here we only get two colours, blue which is the timetabled lesson and a sort of grey for diary events. I noticed that on the green abbey test enviroment that there are several other colours. I am guessing that yellow is cover but i noticed green for on rota and also red for SLT
Anybody know/explain how this works?

You should specify with MIS you mean. I know its SIMS but others may not.

Ok fiza, good point.
It is Sims I am referring to.

@Kyle, I think these colours are hard coded on the timeline. Yellow is cover. Diary entries also appear. From autumn, when someone is covering your class it will show who did it and also indicate room changes.

Do you have any idea on the red and green. I've seen this in the Green Abbey demo site. Have a look at Adrian Black homepage.

@Kyle hot from the product manager!
Ivory - calendar
Pale blue - timetabled class
Aqua blue - non class code e.g. PPA time
Green - cover rota
Yellow - classes you are covering
Red - supervising a detention
Bright red - timetable clash
Light fawn - your classes that have been covered
Pale orange - your reason for absence

Absence reasons will be visible to staff? I thought those notes were for Personnel's eyes only? Especially if Personnel decide to record sensitive information or notes in there.

Your reason can only be seen by you.

So pale orange won't appear at all? I'm not sure I get why reason for absence appears on the timeline if only the admin teams can see.

The reason for absence is the description recorded in the cover diary and it only shows on that person’s timeline, so therefore there are no worries that unauthorised staff can see personal or moral sapping information (Head going for interview etc.)

Thanks for the update Phil.
Off to investigate!
