App Folders are a hierarchical structure, meaning that each Folder can have child folders. A child folder is usually used for a sub-topic under a broader topic.

Example: A Year Groups folder may have child folders for Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and so on. And within each year group, they can have further child folders.

You can add a child folder while writing a Notice or from the Folders screen. Just select a parent folder when adding a new folder and your new folder will become child folder.

Creating Folders

  1. Mouse-over 'Notices' on the left side menu, and select App folders.
  2. In the Name field, type the name of your new folder.
  3. If you want to house this folder inside another you can select a parent folder using the Parent dropdown. If this is a top-level folder, skip this section.
  4. Click Add New Folder button.
  5. That's it! It's that easy.

Please note: After creating the folders you will want to populate the app with a notice, as only folders with content published to them will appear in the app.

A good place to start is to post a notice to each folder you want to be displayed. It can be a short brief description of each folder, this, in turn, will help you understand how School Stream works. Practice makes perfect.

Posting a few of your most recent newsletters or updates for the coming week/s and adding events, these can be anything from P&C meetings to sports matches and anything in between.

By adding a few pages of content to each of these areas you will soon be a pro at using School Stream.
