This article covers the functions available under the Tools tab of the user Site Center. These functions vary in School Loop versions and also depend on the user's role accessing it.
Start by following these steps to go to the Site Center:
- Log into your SL account with the webmaster rights.
- Navigate to the Toolbox > Site Center. If you do not see this option under the Toolbox, it is likely that you do not have the webmaster rights. Learn more about the rights issue that may prevent your access to the Site Center.
- Go to the Tools tab to access the Site Center tools.
- Refer to the following sections to learn about the options available on this tab.
Note: The tools and options on this page vary in School Loop versions and for users depending on their role. Advanced options are only available to District Admins or users with Senior District Webmaster rights.
Use this option to change the template on the site. Please be aware that changing the template on the website also removes its content, and this option is only available if the site is unpublished.
Undelete Pages and Minisites
Restore archived items, learn more about the steps for restoring pages or minisites.
This button toggles between Publish and Unpublish. Users with webmaster rights may publish and unpublish the sites they have rights to, as needed. District Admins can use this option to publish or unpublish the entire site. This is usually used when websites are undergoing significant changes or upgrades.
Manage Editors and Contributors
Assign editors and contributors to assist you with the maintenance of your user sites. If you are not a District Admin, you may not be able to revoke rights for roles assigned by the District Admin. Learn more about managing rights and permissions for the site users.
Used to assign SLS2 Webmaster rights to users.
Site Health Reports
School Loop can spot a number of accessibility issues. These errors are flagged on the pages, and the entire summary by page is displayed here. Learn more about viewing site health reports.
Integrate with Google Calendar
This option lets you add the Google Calendar as a calendar source for your Calendar Modules. Username and password for the Google Account is required for this integration.
Most of the issues regarding users not being able to add a Google Calendar are because the users do not have editing rights on the calendar they want to add.
Although users should know whether they have editing rights or not on a Google Calendar, sometimes they do not. The easiest way to find this is to check their Google Calendar interface on the Google Calendar interface. Users have rights to all calendars under 'My calendar', whereas for everything under 'Other calendars', the users generally only have the viewing rights.
These Other Calendars cannot be synced with School Loop.
Login to User Sites
This option shows the list of the User sites created by Teachers and Staff members. Some other options may show up if the SLS2 (School Loop System- Version 2) site has not been published yet.
Revert to SLS1
Although we strongly encourage all users to upgrade to SLS2, you may revert to the older interface if desired. Please note that this option will be removed in the near future.
This option is used to re-convert pages or rerun the conversion on recently modified SLS1 pages.
