Solution Fluency Activity Planner Updates: Simplicity Itself

by | Nov 30, 2016

When it comes to the tools used by busy teachers, simple is best. The GDCF’s own Solution Fluency Activity Planner is no exception. So in this round of Activity Planner updates we’re happy to announce that we’re continuing to take that philosophy to heart. Simple works, and we want it to work for you.

The New Dashboard

The complicated Dashboard is now gone. All navigation has been updated to make getting around more convenient. Everything you need is all on this page. sfap-new-profile-page

Newest Activity Planner Updates

Let’s start with a look at the top navigation bar in white.

  • Search—This is the new name for what was previously the Discover page.
  • Premium—This tab takes you to the premium lesson plans written by the GDCF Ninjas (more on that below).
  • Help—Our Help section full of articles on how to use the Activity Planner.
  • Home—Your Home tab that returns you to the main Profile page.
  • Notification Bell—This is the bell icon that turns red when you are notified of a like or a comment from another user.
  • Your Picture icon—This offers a drop-down menu with secondary access to all the features the Planner has to offer.
