Dual ID Support Added

Hey Folks, we have another new feature here in Accudemia!  In case you haven’t read it, yesterday we have published new features for appointments.  It is possible to schedule recurring appointments for example, or assign a random tutor to each appointment.  Check the details here if you haven’t yet.

Today, we also have added the possibility to have 2 IDs per student.  That way, if a student has ID 123-45-6789, but her card has another number, such as ==SMITHJ123456789/= or whatever, you can let students either swipe their card or type in their student ID number.

To do so, you must first enable the “Alternate ID support” in the Control Panel.  You can find that option under the User Accounts section. Once you have done that, go edit a user and you will see a new field under the User ID that was already there.

This will also disable the ID mask in the sign-in station.  However, if you type an ID without the masking chars (eg., 123456789), it will still find the user with ID 123-45-6789.

For the IT people, we have also added support for this field in ADX (out import tool).  Just update to the latest version and you will see the option to map the fields “Student’s Alternate ID Number” and “Tutor’s Alternate ID Number”.

Hope you find this useful!

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.
