Scheduled Import now Available

We just released a new version of the Accudemia Data Exchange (a.k.a. ADX) app, you can now take a look to the new features it has to offer.

The possibility to schedule jobs to run periodically lets you keep all your information in sync. For example, someone from your IT team can export all the updated students information every a couple hours, and then set up ADX to move all that information to Accudemia.

To do so, you just have to view the details of a job and hit Enable schedule:

You will be prompted to enter a Windows account and password, they will be used to execute the job under that account. So you must enter an user with enough access rights to access the source file.

All the options supported by Windows to customize the scheduled job are available. You can also edit the job options in the Windows Control Panel –> Task Scheduler. Either way, you will see this screen to set it up:

Hit “OK” and done!

Enable Email Notifications

One more thing you might want to configure is email notifications. ADX can email you whenever a job runs, so you are aware of whether the information is synchronized or not. Go to Tools > Options, and enter your email address:

And again: Hit “OK” and done!

When is your job going to run the next time?

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
