"How to..." online sessions

What online sessions are available?

Ever wondered if you are making the most of your subscription?  Looking for tips on how to generate stories, respond with impact or use the clever reporting tools at your disposal?  

We run a series of really short "how to..." sessions designed to help. You'll find session descriptions below which we run for staff from subscribing organisations.

They are suitable whether you’re brand new to Care Opinion, or have been using the site for a while. In fact we recommend that you join in every few months as we're constantly innovating and adding new features to the site so we will most likely have new things to share with you.  

Have a read of each session description, and check the available dates for one that suits you. You can book on as many as you think will help you make the most of your subscription.

We currently run all our sessions via WebEx. We recommend that you have a chat with your IT Department so they know you're going to be using this platform as they might need to alter some of your permissions.

How to book your session:

Decide which session you'd like to attend.

Then simply click "register here" on the date that suits you best, Which will take you to our WebEx page for that session, fill out the short form and then "register now". Then, we'll accept your registration and WebEx will send you a link to add the meeting to your calendar and a password to join the webinar. If you have any problems just give us a call!

We'll also send you an email to remind you 50 minutes before the session.

Click on the link in your email/calendar 10 minutes before the session starts and follow the instructions.

If you need any help or advice, call or email your usual subscriber support contact, or:

  • phone: 0114 281 6256 (Sheffield Office) or 01786 235984 (Stirling Office)
