COVID-19 Screening

This template can be used for screening students in anticipation of returning to face-to-face learning. This could be something sent prior to semester start dates, events or in general to minimise the risk of spread.

Setup guide

To apply this template in Pendula, simply select a scheduled flow and depending on how often you'd like this to be sent, set this to run on either a recurring frequency or as a once-off. We generally recommend sometime between 9am-12pm. This means that when it is triggered to run, it will send to all student records based on the criteria specified below:

  • Student Status <selector>equals</selector> 'current' or 'active'
  • Campus <selector>equals</selector> <name> (if you would like to segment in/out students from certain campuses)
  • You'll need to ensure you have placeholder field for capturing responses

What's the difference?
