Mobile app Home screen best practices


It’s a good idea to only display the calendars on your Home screen that will be of most interest to the largest number of app users. Pick one or two calendars to display that are relevant to the vast majority of users, such as vacation calendars, all-school or district-wide event calendars. You may also want to display calendars with critical dates for applications or deadlines.


Only the top five posts from the selected board or collection will be displayed on the Home screen Posts slider. To ensure the Posts content is always fresh, make use of publish, expire, and feature dates to effectively control which content is displayed.

For school districts, it’s a good idea to select only the main district news and announcement boards to ensure everyone is aware of important communications. Individual school boards are better pulled into the Posts tab, where they can be filtered.

For independent, charter, and parochial schools, select the board(s) your school uses to communicate the most important news or announcement content on your site. These may be the boards you are pulling into your homepage to display news or your parent portal to display announcements.
