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.

Tired of that default login page?

UPDATE:This is no longer necessary. Go to the Control Panel > Appearance and Themes to update the login instructions. Also, the screenshot shown below does not reflect the actual default page. See updated post.

Most users never notice that the standard page shown to access Accudemia is just an example. You can always change the way it looks simply by sending us the new page.

Also, it’s possible to stop using that page and have a better integration in your own site. You can put the login frame into your page; let’s see how to do that. You might want to contact the administrator of your website in order to do this, it will be a bit complex if you have never dealt with HTML code.
Now, the only thing you have to do is include the following code in your page’s source:
<iframe frameborder="0" height="85px" width="190px" scrolling="no" src="https://collegename.accudemia.net/LoginForm.aspx?bgColor=%23FFFFFF&Layout=Vertical&Referer=http…

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!

Make a subject area available to all students and/or in all centers without importing files!

If you go to edit a Subject Area you’ll see that you have now two new options: “Available to all Students” and “Available in All centers”.

The first option is very handy in the situation where you are using enrollment but you have a subject area that should be available to all students. Before this option, you would have to upload an import file with all the students and the corresponding subject area, but now you just check this option in and that’s it!

The second option will help you associate a subject area to all the centers in your system. Again, before this option an import file was needed in order to save this relationship.

You can also set this options via ADX when you import courses!

You can see these options in the image below…
