Planning Tool: USER TIPS
Hidden Goals & Strategies
If a district goal or strategy is not showing up in a school plan, check the box in the upper left corner of the screen. It may be that the goal or strategy is hidden. To unhide, simply uncheck the NA box.

Action Step Calendar
Some users are having an issue with the calendar when entering Action Steps. We have identified that is often a result of how the browser is viewing in larger resolutions. If you have this issue, you can (a) click CONTROL - (MINUS) which will make the view smaller or (b) try using Firefox. We are working on a more permanent solution.
