We encourage teachers that best practice with foreseen absence is to generate their extras at least by the evening prior to their absence. The reasons for this are as follows:
- it alerts the Daily Org when they import their bulletin if they have missed covering a teacher
- it allows the Daily Org to print off extras before school starts as required e.g. say for CRT’s
- it ensures that the PDF’s generated become part of the nightly daily backup that occurs at 12.30am. This backup is emailed out to MyExtras Administrators and is useful if the school loses its internet connection or the MyExtras website becomes unavailable.
- it is just best practise to be organised and avoid doing things at the last minute when you can easily make mistakes.
