School Cover Booking - Can I use the calendar to book cover for absence?

Copper Contributor

I work in a school and am part of the team that timetables teaching cover, for both planned and unplanned absence. We use a shared Microsoft 365 calendar for events and meetings but I was wondering if it, or another Microsoft system, could also be used to log, assign and notify of cover?


An ideal system that helped to organise cover would:

- have the option for anyone to log the cover they required

- notify senior leadership of the cover required

- have the ability to assign the cover to another staff member and notify them of this

- also notify the staff member's team of the assigned cover


Is there any way I can use a Microsoft system to do this?

Thanks in advance!
