New import tool has been published!

We have been working hard in the past months in order to make many improvements to the import process. As a result, there have been many changes in the way you import your files.

First, you need to download and install a new tool called Accudemia Data Exchange. It’s currently available only for Windows XP or newer, Linux and Mac OS versions are still under development.

Once you download and run the installer, just follow the few steps described there; it will download and install all the required files. You might be prompted to install some missing Windows components you don’t have installed, you have to accept and install those components too. It’s just a couple clicks to accept the installation of all the required components.

After it completes, the application will start and ask you to login:

The User ID and the Password are the same you use to access Accudemia. The Domain can be the address you use to access Accudemia, or just the first part of it (both will work). For instance, you can enter somecollege.accudemia.net, or just somecollege.

Now, you are logged in the Accudemia Data Exchange control panel.

Click on “Create New Import Task” to select which file has to be imported, and how it will be done. Follow the steps described there, they might vary depending on what you are going to import to Accudemia.

For instance, if you are going to import students enrollment, you might have something like this:

Complete the remaining steps to save the changes. To run the job and import the file to Accudemia, you have to click on View Details (under the job’s name), and then on Run Import Now:

Referrals and Early Alert System Quick Start

I decided to write a quick step-by-step guide to start using the Referral and Early Alert System (AREAS). I hope it will help you get started with the software in just a couple minutes. In this post everything is done by hand, that means that you are going to have to type all student names, subject areas and all the information you might need. Once you have the whole thing up and running you probably will import all the other information; so I suggest you to start creating one or 2 students, one or 2 instructors, and so on. If it’s the first time you access Accudemia, maybe you went through the initial Configuration Wizard which let’s you setup the basic stuff. In this guide we will verify all the required information is there, and create it if it is not. 1. Create the Staff Accounts: It’s always a good point to start; once you have created the administrator accounts in Accudemia they can help you to setup all the other things. You can do it from the User Accounts menu. Just make su

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.
