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 sure y…

Recurring Appointments Now Available

With Accudemia v7.0 we have incredibly simplified the process of making appointments. First, we have changed the flow from an open-search approach to a step by step wizard. Second, we have simplified the number of options displayed at the same time to reduce the complexity of the screen.

Now, we are launching one of the features that was missing for this process and that's the ability to schedule recurring appointments.



In order to create a new appointment, now you need to click on "Setup Recurrence" in the last step. Then select the recurrence pattern and end date.

Two common recurrence patterns are offered: weekly on the same day of your appointment or Monday through Friday. Also, you have the option to select Custom and specify which days of the week it should repeat or every how many months.

At the bottom, you can select until when it will repeat. Either specifying the number of occurrences or the end date.  Look at the 3-month calendar on the right to preview the se…

How-to: Scheduling Appointments

Accudemia has always offered different ways to create an appointment. Each method is intended for users trying to find appointments using different criterias. 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 3rd way is using the Manual method, which is enabled only to administrators and it allows them to select exactly what they want and bypass several validations the system might enforce using the Wizard or the New Appointment methods.Here’s a quick description on how to use each one of these features.New AppointmentYou can find it under Center Attendance > Appointments > New Appointment. 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…
