Happy New Semester: Copying tutor assignments

Happy New Semester

Most of you will need to copy semester information to start the new year.

Here's a quick guide on how to copy Tutor Assignments from one semester to another:

There are 2 ways to do that:

1) To copy only a couple of tutors:
   - Go to User Accounts -> Tutors
   - Select the user you want (or click on "MultiSelect" to select more than one tutor)
   - Click on Assignments
   - Click on "Copy assignments from another term"
   - Select source and destination terms and click Accept.

2) To copy several tutors at once:
   - Go to Advanced -> Export
   - Click on "Tutor Assignments" to export all the tutor assignments.
   - Delete the columns "Tutor Name" and "Subject Area Code"
   - Sort the data by "Semester" and remove the records from old semesters (only keep the data from the semester you want to copy from)
   - Change the semester column to the new semester. For example, rename all Fall 2013 with Winter 2014.
   - Re-import that data using ADX.  You will need to map the fields "Semester's Name", "Tutor ID" and "Subject Area's Name"

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.

and Appointment Restrictions

We are excited to announce that we are introducing 2 new features today. When the students sign-in or create an appointment, now you can limit what courses and staff members to display. There are 2 types of restrictions available that you can use: The first one is the Student-Staff Member Association . This lets you assign specific staff member to specific students, so you can decide who works with who. The second one is the Service-Subject Area Association . That means that only certain courses will be displayed when a service is selected. For example, certain services like Tutoring might require all the student courses to be displayed, while a Self Study service might require the students to select a different kind of activity only for tracking purposes. The restrictions can be found under Administration > Restrictions in Accudemia 7.0. Once there, select the restriction type you want to edit. Then, 1) Select the Center you want to apply the restriction to. 2) Cli
