How to use the on call system
Members of staff just need to click the on call button in the menu bar to call for assistance. When you click the on call button a pop up with a pre-written message stating who they are, which class you have and their location will appear. If the teacher does nothing, the message gets automatically sent in five seconds OR the teacher can alter the message (which cancels the countdown) and then send it manually.
