Accudemia Webinar - Getting Started!

This webinar focused on new users setting up their college Accudemia website. Hopefully it will help you get familiar with the system and have an idea of how to get things started with Accudemia. We covered the following topics:

  1. Setting up Accudemia for your Center
  2. Control Panel Settings
  3. Setting up your Sign-In Computers
  4. Importing College Data
  5. Generating Reports

I also wanted to include a link to the PowerPoint that some people requested.

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.

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 page displays a filter with the next options: Use From/To filters to view only availability in that period of time. The center can…

Several Pre-RequisitesYou will need access to place hyperlinks into your webpages and create webpages/add files to your school's portal.  Usually this can be done via the Web Development Specialists at your school who can modify the files directly on your web server.  Others will need their privileges to be elevated on the school's portal or website so they can create/modify webpages on your school's website via a web-based WYSIWYG (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get) editor.You will need to obta…
