The long awaited update!

Many of you have been asking for new features, sending suggestions, complaints (not too many luckily) and any kind of change requests for Accudemia. I’m glad to announce that finally, after 3 long months, we have updated the site with a bunch of changes on it.

The list of changes is long, but here are the things I like more:

Site Speed:

The performance of the site was greatly improved, some parts of the site were redone from scratch with performance in mind. Also the iAccu performance was improved, the sync is now so much faster, for real.

Data Export:

You can find a new option in the left menu to export your data. By doing so, you get the raw information, so you can analyze it by using Excel or any other tool you like.

Fixed Walk-Ins:

Tired of selecting the same information every time? Well, now you can “fix” the data that won’t change between different walk-ins, so students only have to select the information that is important for them.

More options directly from the Intake System screen:

You can now double-click over a student that is signed-in, and a screen will pop up where you can edit the session comments, or sign him out. That way you don’t have to be switching from page to page.

Profile Pictures!

We also have added support for uploading profile pics. Don’t remember who that student is? Take a look at the picture to remember.

We will be extending this to other parts of the system, so you can always have a picture next to the name. Just start uploading your profile pictures!

What else? You will find a bunch of new settings for customizing account restrictions, appointments, 14 new traffic analysis reports, lots of bug fixes and enhancements, among other things.

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.

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
