The Activity Page

Each time you login to the site, you’ll see the Activity Page. This is your starting point for accessing all of the features in the yearbook software.

The Activity Page of the site provides access to all major features. All of the functionality on the Activity Page is organized into sections, or ‘boxes.’ Here’s a description of the main sections on the Activity Page:

  • Status box

    • The Status box at the top of the page displays information about the current status of the book, and the next steps.
  • Progress box

    • The Page Progress and Cover Progress meters provide a real-time visual overview of book progress, with a set of color-coded progress meters.
      • The Not Started progress meter shows the percentage or number of pages that have not yet been started, in red.
      • The In Progress progress meter shows the percentage or number of pages that have been started and are in progress, in yellow.
      • The Completed progress meter shows the percentage or number of pages that have been marked complete by an editor, in blue.
      • The Approved progress meter shows the percentage or number of pages that have been approved by an adviser, in green.
    • In general as you glance at the progress meters, more red and less green means the book is in an early stage. As you progress though the design process, you will see more green and less red, to indicate that the book is nearing completion.
    • Candid and Portraits Status
      • The Candid and Portraits Status section shows the total number of Candid Photos and Portraits that have been uploaded to the software, and the number of each that has not yet been used in the book.
  • Activity Log

    • The Activity Log box shows a real-time log of all user activity in the book. Items are arranged chronologically with the most recent at the top of the list, and the user and book section are shown for each event. You can scroll through the Activity log to see a complete history of the book.
  • Due Date Box

    • The Due Date box displays the Due Date for your yearbook, along with today’s date, and a countdown of days remaining. Below the due date information you will also see the book specification, including Cover Type, Number of Pages, and Quantity ordered. These items are submitted by your studio.
  • Message Box

    • The Message box displays any important messages or announcements from your yearbook provider and from your yearbook adviser. Any user with Adviser privileges can add or update the adviser message by clicking the Edit icon, and then typing in a new message
