What is eActivities?
eActivities is an online system for facilitating the management of Clubs, Societies & Projects within the Union.
Who and what is eActivities for?
eActivities is accessible by any Officer of a Club, Society or Project within the Union.
Senior Officers, such as Chairs and Treasurers, can use eActivities to manage their group. For example, eActivities contains information on your groups membership numbers; how much money your group has and what that money has been spent on; who your groups members actually are; and much more.
Senior Officers edit this information so that the Union and your group itself
are aware of the details of their activities and so that there is a permanent record of their activities for future members reference.
What is this booklet for?
The eActivities booklet is a guide to navigating and using the system. It contains numerous screenshots of the various eActivities pages telling you what you can do in each section and how to do it. You will find this booklet most useful if you use it as a companion piece while using eActivities.
If you have any difficulties with eActivities, or there is a problem with the system you should contact the Student Activities Centre by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can call: 0207 594 8066, extension 48066.

If you are an Officer of more than one Club, Society or Project within the Union, you may want to view the eActivities area of each group. This is easy to do on the eActivities site as all the groups you are a member of are tied to your College username.
The first page you see when you log in to eActivities is pictured below. At the top of the screen is another red button labelled Change Role.
Clicking on the Change Role button will make a drop down list appear, where you can choose which Club, Society or Projects eActivities pages you wish to look at.

Club & Society Details
Union Clubs, Societies and Projects must complete a number of different documents so that the Union can keep a record of their activity, contacts and various other pieces of information. With eActivities, completing all the necessary forms and documents is easy because it can be done online, wherever you can get access to a computer. To view the information about your clubs documentation, first click on the Club & Society Details button on the submenu. Then, click the Documents tab.
Upcoming DocumentseActivities notifies you of exactly which forms your Club, Society or Project needs to fill out. These Upcoming Documents are shaded orange.
Outstanding DocumentsIn the event that you dont finish a document by the deadline, they will be highlighted in red in the Oustanding Documents section.

Outstanding Documents that still need to be completed
Training Quizzes and the titles of the Officers who need to complete them
Naughty OfficersIf any members of your Club, Society or Project group have registered for a position but not joined the club, they will be listed on the Document page as a Naughty Officer.
Incomplete Training QuizzesThe final heading highlights which Officers havent completed and passed a mandatory Training Quiz.
You can take these quizzes by first clicking on the Club & Society Admin link on the submenu, then clicking Training Quizzes. Next, enter your College Username and Password you will be taken to the website where you can complete the quizzes.
A list of messages will appear here
From time to time the Union may need to get in contact with your Club, Society or Project. One way of doing this will be to send messages to you through eActivities. You can view them by clicking on the Messages tab.
Under the Members tab, you can view how many members belong to your Club, Society or Project. Here, you can also see how many are Life or Associate members, beyond your regular student members.
The shaded bar on the Members page is particularly important as it tells you how close your Club, Society or Project is to reaching its membership quota for the year. The amount of money your Club, Society or Project receives from the Union each year depends on how many members your club has and whether or not you have reached your projected membership quota. If you dont reach this figure, the amount of funding your group receives may be cut. So, keep a close eye on this page!
