Class Attendance Tracking

Many users had been asking for a way to track the student’s attendance to classes. The first thing they tried is to create a shared schedule for many professors or complex things like that. The fact is that it’s really easy to have scheduled classes in Accudemia and track students attendance.

To do so, the first thing you need is a Classroom, instead of a Center. Go to the Centers & Classrooms screen and create a new Classroom, as shown in the image below:

Did you know? You can create groups from filtered reports

On reports: when you create and filter a report it "automatically" creates a User Group. After creating a report that you need, where you have filtered all of the students with " MATH "(Subject Areas), selected only the " Freshman "(Student Demographic) who have visited the center for " Tutoring "(Service Type) more than 3 times on a Visitor History report you decide you want to save that group and call them " Freshman needing Math Help ." You can do this after you run that report by visiting the User Accounts > Groups section on the left-side navigation panel. Once there simply click on the Report Generated Groups tab, then click on the report you just ran, and click edit .  At this point you can name the group and hit save changes and the group will now be available for you to use as a group filter in future reports.

Tech Tip: Calculate Tutor Payroll

Today a customer came with a good question.  He was trying to calculate tutor payments from a student visit report.  However, if you export the report in Excel format, you will get the Period in HH:MM format: To calculate the total hours and the total payment amount, you will need to use the TIMEVALUE Excel formula . For example, the following will return the total hours worked: =TIMEVALUE([Cell])*24 Then you can, round that number to have only 2 decimals: =ROUND(TIMEVALUE([Cell]) * 24, 2) For example, if the tutor has worked for 1 hour and 30 minutes (that would be displayed as 1:30), you will get 1.50 hours using the formula above. Or you can multiply the total hours worked (not rounded) by the hourly pay rate and then round the final amount.  If it were $20, then the final formula would be: =ROUND(TIMEVALUE([Cell]) * 24 * 20, 2) Being [Cell] the reference to the cell where the period is (eg, 01:30), and 20 is the hourly pay rate.
