The ‘Documents’ feature allows you to upload Word, Excel, PDF, or txt files to an easy to find area within the Tapestry ePortfolio system. It can be used to help educators and parents keep track of important information, without the need for endless pieces of paper which can get lost or become out of date quickly.
The documents you upload can be separated into folders of your choice and will be automatically scanned for viruses. You can edit each file, its name, and its description at any point. You can also choose, on a file by file basis, whether they are visible to parents or just fellow educators.
There are lots of ways you might choose to use this feature, but here are a few examples to make things easier:
- To share key policies and protocols
e.g. fire safety, child protection, data protection, safeguarding, and welfare
- For planning documents
- For resources parents might like to use at home
- For school dinner menus and other provided food information
- For sharing information about term dates and holidays
- For documents regarding events
How you use the Tapestry Documents feature is totally up to you though. We always build features to be flexible so you can use them in the way that works best for you and your organisation.
Managers can enable it through the ‘Features’ section in the control panel.
