To get started, a calendar needs to be set up by the Admin Level User in the school; and assigned at least one Event Type with "Teacher" access.
Setting up your School Calendar
The School Calendar included in Momentum ESR is an easy way to keep track of school events such as sports days, staff meetings, and playground rosters. You can create your own event types to suit your school's needs, and you can create more than one calendar to further organise the events.

- Select the Admin tab, and then >General >Calendar Administration page
- Select the 'New' button to create a new Calendar. Enter a name for your new calendar, and a description for the calendar.
