Why would I change a day type?

You might change a day type because your child is going to be absent from school for a particular reason (e.g. sick) and you want to give them their rest day routine instead of their school day routine.

Can I change multiple days in one go?

Yes, you can use the ADD REST DAYS function. 

TIP: Read our help guide to find out How to: add holidays to a calendar.

When I attempt to make changes I receive a warning about school time, why?

This is because your child is enrolled in and linked with a partner school, it should show which school at the top of their calendar.  Partner schools are able to set school time (start and end) and their calendar to make sure that they are able to provide duty of care during school hours.  The change you are attempting to make will take your child out of school managed school time and put the school’s ability to provide duty of care to students.  You can continue with the action, however the school will be made aware of it.
