Log Your Activities

This page applies to Compact2Learn students.

You can use the Activities section to log your service and volunteer hours and experiences. The Activities section has two views: Calendar and List.

Calendar View

In the left section, any activities recorded for the date selected are listed, along with total hours for that day. On the right, you can select a monthly calendar view or a weekly agenda view, along with the total hours for that month or week. Click the arrow icons to toggle to additional months and weeks, or click Today to jump to the current date.

Recorded activities have designated icons to identify their status:

  • Solid circle with a checkmark: you have completed the activities for this day but the activities haven't been approved yet.
  • Circle outline with a checkmark: you have scheduled activities for this day but you haven't marked them as completed yet (typically for backlogged, recurring activities).
  • Arrows in a circle: you have scheduled activities for this day that haven't occurred yet (typically for recurring activities in future dates).

List View

You can use advanced filtering features in the List view, as well as perform bulk updates.

Add an Activity

  1. Click Activities.
  2. Click Add a New Activity.
  3. Select the date your activity occurred.
  4. Select your experience and supervisor. You can also create a new experience by clicking Add an Experience. If you have more than one supervisor at your experience, select the appropriate supervisor from the drop-down list.
  5. Select your activity type.
  6. Enter your hours. If you select Hours, enter your hours in decimal format (e.g., 15 minutes is 0.25, 30 minutes is 0.5, etc.) or analog format (e.g., 1:30 is one and a half hours). If you select Time, enter the start and end times, including AM and PM.
  7. Select or enter tags, if applicable.
  8. Under Notes/Reflections, enter additional information about your experience (e.g., observations, reflections, etc.) for your supervisors and faculty advisors.
  9. Under Schedule as Recurring, select how often this activity occurred or will occur. Enter an end date as well, if applicable.
  10. Click Add or Add & Enter Another to add additional activities.

Add a Recurring Activity

You can add recurring activities that occur on a regular schedule and have the same activity details. You only need to enter the activity once and Compact2Learn automatically adds the activities for future dates based on the schedule you set. To add a recurring activity, follow the steps above under Add an Activity. Be sure to select the first date your activity occurred. This is especially important if you are backlogging hours.

Depending on the date range of the activity, your recurring activities will be set as:

  • Scheduled: activities set for a future date.
  • Unconfirmed: actives set for the current or past dates. This typically appears for backlogged hours, where the scheduled date has already passed.

If you have unconfirmed activity hours, they will not be included in your hour or activity totals until they have been approved and marked as Confirmed.

Choose an Activity Type

When entering activities, you must select an activity type. Consider the duties you performed and choose the category that you think best fits the experience. You can also contact your institutional administrator and supervisor for guidance.

Edit an Activity

Once you create an activity, you can return to make edits. You can do this both individually and in a batch. These steps apply for both single-occurrence and recurring activities. Note that if your activities have already been approved, you must resubmit them for approval after any edits are made.
