Add an Activity

One of the most basic features of KOLOLA is being able to build a record of your activities, quickly map out their evidence for potential impact, as well as serving as a long term repository for attachment documents.

How does it Work?

  1. Click on the 'Add Activity' button in the toolbar at the top of any page.
  2. Follow the instructions inputting as much information as you can (relax though, you can edit all of this information later if you don't have time right now!).
  3. Your completed activity will appear as an activity tile within the activity browser and will be visible to everybody else. Conversely, you can also view activities added by other users.
  4. Once the activity has been created, you can also add links and attachments.

What can I use this for?

  • You can build up a personal record of your own activities over time (which you can later transfer over to a personal portfolio in case you move institution).
  • KOLOLA gives you a centralised space to record all of your evidence of impact. This is also accessible by other staff, including colleagues, impact officers and marketing staff. This approach means that these people can access this data without having to hassle you for it first.
  • You can collaborate with colleagues to fill in data on activities (for example a workshop might have several colleagues in attendance), as well as join yourself to their activities. This approach reduces duplication of effort.
  • Most types of documents can be attached to specific activities to help supplement evidence of impact. These include e-mails, pdfs, text documents, spreadsheets, images, videos and more.
  • Your institution can enable the Kleio archive add-on to KOLOLA, which enables it to scrape data from websites in multiple formats to enable long term storage. This is particularly useful for preserving evidence from external websites which are liable to be taken down/changed over time.
