Allow Tutor to Record Session After the Fact

Many people don’t seem to be aware of one incredible feature that Accudemia has.  If you tutor in the cafeteria or somewhere else where there’s no a sign-in station available, you can add sign-in sessions manually later. 
Well, to be honest, the best way to do it would be with iAccu, using an iPhone you can create the session even with no Internet connection.  But let’s imagine your cell phone battery is dead or you just want to do it later.
First of all, an administrator must allow tutors to manually sign-in and sign-out students.  Those options can be found in the Control Panel, under the User Accounts section:
restrictions
Once that option is enabled, the tutor can login to her account, go to Sign-In/Sign-Out in the left menu and create the session(s) manually in a few clicks:

There you have to select the center, the start time and duration of the session, and optionally the course, instructor and services you helped with.  Then select the student names and click in the big blue button on the top toolbar.  That’s it.
Also, if the tutee is not in the system and you have Guest Sign-In enabled, you can search for the student called “Guest Student” with ID 000-00-0000  (those are defaults, can be different in your account), and sign him in!

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.
