Track Appointment Reschedules

Starting today, Accudemia is tracking appointment reschedules. Every time the date or time of an appointment is modified, Accudemia saves the information of the person who made the change and when they did it. Changes in other fields are not considered as a re-schedule. If an administrator decides to update the comments or re-assign it to a different tutor, for example, it will not be considered a reschedule. Reschedule Tracking When an appointment is rescheduled, it will have an icon like this one: Clicking on the name of the student will open the window in the right with the details of the reschedule: If the appointment was re-scheduled more than once, the information of each time it was re-scheduled will be shown in multiple lines. Filters In addition to that information above, we have added filters to show only appointments that have been rescheduled in the "View All Appointments" screen and the "Appointment - No Shows" report. In the View All

Easier bulk actions

Time is valuable. That's one of the key considerations when working on a new feature. A software platform needs to allow users to perform tasks quickly and intuitively. While that's harder than it sounds, today we are doing just that. We are releasing a new option to select multiple items with a single click. Some users have requested this for multiple sections and now we have added this option. Specific sections, including User Accounts  and Session Logs  now display a checkbox on the bottom of the screen, like this: Use this checkbox to quickly select all or none of the visible items. Also, you will see something similar in another section, the + New Log tool formaerly named the Bulk Sign-In . When signing-in a whole class, it's now possible to Check All or Check None of the students in that class. This will be a big time saver for many. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Recurring Appointments Now Available

With Accudemia v7.0 we have incredibly simplified the process of making appointments. First, we have changed the flow from an open-search approach to a step by step wizard. Second, we have simplified the number of options displayed at the same time to reduce the complexity of the screen. Now, we are launching one of the features that was missing for this process and that's the ability to schedule recurring appointments. In order to create a new appointment, now you need to click on "Setup Recurrence" in the last step. Then select the recurrence pattern and end date. Two common recurrence patterns are offered: weekly on the same day of your appointment or Monday through Friday. Also, you have the option to select Custom and specify which days of the week it should repeat or every how many months. At the bottom, you can select until when it will repeat. Either specifying the number of occurrences or the end date.  Look at the 3-month calendar on the right to pre

Per-Service Options for Waiting Line and Appointments

As requested by our users, we have added new per-service options in Accudemia. The first of the options allows you to keep a waiting line in the center only for certain services. For example, if you offer tutoring but also let students study by themselves, you might want to have a waiting line for those who require a tutor to be available. However those who are going to study without help can sign-in without delay. The second addition is the option to hide a service from the suggestions when creating a new appointment. Some services might not be available for appointments and now you can simplify the new appointment screen by hiding them. To edit those options, go to your center details under Centers & Classrooms and click on the Services tab: Then, when you add or edit a service, you'll see both options available: If you haven't migrated to Accudemia 7.0 yet, you won't see the "Hide suggestions from new appointment screen" option, since that

Sign-In and Appointment Restrictions

We are excited to announce that we are introducing 2 new features today. When the students sign-in or create an appointment, now you can limit what courses and staff members to display. There are 2 types of restrictions available that you can use: The first one is the Student-Staff Member Association . This lets you assign specific staff member to specific students, so you can decide who works with who. The second one is the Service-Subject Area Association . That means that only certain courses will be displayed when a service is selected. For example, certain services like Tutoring might require all the student courses to be displayed, while a Self Study service might require the students to select a different kind of activity only for tracking purposes. The restrictions can be found under Administration > Restrictions in Accudemia 7.0. Once there, select the restriction type you want to edit. Then, 1) Select the Center you want to apply the restriction to. 2) Cli
