Only Admin users can set a House Points Competition Start Date.

Start Date Controls the House Points Dashboard

The House Points Dashboard will only show Points earned after the Competition Start Date that is set.

For example, you can set the start date as the day before school starts to show Points earned for the whole year, or the day before the first day of a new quarter if you want to "restart" a competition and only show Points earned during the new quarter.

Setting the Start Date will reset the House Points Dashboard, but it does not clear Points earned by students or remove any transaction history.

  1. Go to "House Points"

  2. Click "Options"

  3. Choose a new date and your House Points Dashboard will update for the entire school‍

Do not click "Delete Houses" unless you'd like to unlink your current Rosters, but don't worry if you did! You can re-link your House Rosters to House Points using these steps.

A few other notes about the Competition Start Date:

  • Changing the Competition Start Date does not affect your student data, only what's shown on the House Points Dashboard. All students will retain all Points.

  • You can switch the Competition Start Date at any time, but it updates the Dashboard for everyone in the school.

  • The Competition Start Date also works if you set a past date.
