Google Calendar + Accudemia

Did you know you can link your college Google calendar to Accudemia by pasting the Google code into Accudemia?  There are two ways to do this.
You can also watch a webinar that explains the process at http://www.attendance-tracking.com/docs/doku.php/webinar-signup (Power User Features)
First go to Google and select Google calendar, click on the little gear in up right corner,  settings,  calendar(s),  and then click on the link that is the name of your calendar. Then copy the calendar ID for the calendar. (Usually this is an email) Go sign into Accudemia and go to control panel.  Click on announcements and select the top default option (college level).  Past your Google calendar ID into little box labeled Shared Google calendar ID.  Save. Now go to your home page and click at the top on add content and select shared Google calendar. You should now see your calendar on the home page.
Now my calendar shows under web content.

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:

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…
