Important Update for iAccu Available

iphone4-release101-wreflex

As of today, you can grab a new and improved version of iAccu from the Apple App Store. Actually, you will find that the version that you have currently installed on your iPhone or iPod Touch will no longer work; this is due to a major update that was released for iAccu and Accudemia at the same time.

If you didn’t downloaded the Update from the App Store, this is a good time for doing so.

What’s New?

The major change you will notice is in terms of responsiveness; the performance was greatly improved to allow users to handle much more data than before. While you’re syncing with Accudemia, you will have a good visual feedback about what’s going on in the background too (see pic). Also, you can now view the session log, or just who’s signed in, and sign them out right from the application!

Another thing is that as of today, you can configure auto sign-out options as you do in Accudemia. Let’s say you don’t want students to be in for more than 45 minutes, OK, then just go to settings and enter 45’ as the max amount of time they can be in; after that time has elapsed, the student will be automatically signed-out. You can do the same if you don’t want students to have to sign-out manually; enter the time they will be in, and forget about signing-out the students!.

1-click sign-in for staff members now available

Productivity is essential when a center is busy and there's a long line of students waiting. Hopefully that's not your case, but in any case if we can save tutors, advisors or counselors a few seconds of their time, we have made their job easier and more valuable.Starting today, we're rolling out an update that lets staff members sign-in and sign-out with only one click (OK, maybe two).On the top-right part of the screen, staff members will see a button indicating whether they are signed-in or not. Clicking there will show a small popup to let them sign-in or sign-out, without having to leave the screen they are currently on.When signed-out:
When signed-in:If you are an administrator and don't think this is useful or want to disable it for any reason, you can do so in the Control Panel. Click on "User Accounts" and uncheck the option "Tutors can sign them in and out from any screen".Leave your comments below if you find this feature useful!

How-to: Scheduling Appointments

Accudemia has always offered different ways to create an appointment. Each method is intended for users trying to find appointments using different criterias. For example, if you want to list all tutors available for a certain course you might want to use the New Appointment method. The Wizard lets you find the perfect appointment for you in a simple 5 step procedure instead, where you are prompted to select the dates, services, the course and tutor you want. The 3rd way is using the Manual method, which is enabled only to administrators and it allows them to select exactly what they want and bypass several validations the system might enforce using the Wizard or the New Appointment methods.Here’s a quick description on how to use each one of these features.New AppointmentYou can find it under Center Attendance > Appointments > New Appointment. The page displays a filter with the next options: Use From/To filters to view only availability in that period of time. The center can…

Advisor? Counselor? Tutor? Pick what suits you best.

As part of our Accudemia upgrade plan, we are introducing new changes we believe you will enjoy. Accudemia is designed to work in multiple centers and each center has its own preferences and its own way to work. That has been possible since the very beginning, with the exception of choosing what terminology it should use.Starting today, each center can pick what terminology to use for its staff members. Running a Tutoring Center? An Advising Center? Now it's possible to decide exactly what word it should use depending on the context.Accudemia supports changing the terminology for Tutor (and its derivates Tutors and Tutoring) at a global level and also per center. The global term is used when a center context is not available, such as when listing all users under User Accounts. All these new configurations can be found in the Control Panel, under the Terminology section.Recommendation: Our recommendation is to set the global term to be Staff Member and then use Tutor, Advisor, Coun…
