Embed your TryBooking events directly into Schoolbox's calendar and create an event page, listing all your current events that make it easy for your parents and community to book.
To get started you will first need to add the below URL to the Safe iframe list in Schoolbox, located under Administration > Settings > Security.
URL to be added to Safe iframe list: www.trybooking.com
After completing this step, you can add TryBooking links in several places to Schoolbox.
- Embed a TryBooking event URL into your Schoolbox calendar event
- Create a news item or page within Schoolbox to feature your TryBooking events as a list or just add a specific TryBooking event
Whichever option you choose, the technique is the same and with both options, parents will be able to book within Schoolbox.
Adding your events to Schoolbox
When creating an event in the calendar, or going back to edit it - you will need to use the WYSIWYG editors embed tool as indicated below
Copy and paste your TryBooking URL into the tool, click OK and save the event.
Set the height as 1000 and select full width for maximum exposure.
This is how it will look in a calendar event. If you click “book now” you can complete the entire booking process within this pop-up.
This same technique can be applied to a Schoolbox news item where you can use either a direct booking URL or your school’s TryBooking Event Listing URL.
Event listing URL:
Direct Booking URL:
Consider creating a more permanent location for all your current TryBooking events, by creating an icon in your Schoolbox header to link to your TryBooking Event Listing Page following the steps below.
- In Schoolbox, select administration, select the option Top Menu.
- Create a new menu item.
- Copy and paste your school's TryBooking Event Listing URL into the Destination URL and save.
You will now see the events icon you selected in the header which will direct your community direct to your events.
