Email clients integration in Accudemia

Today we released a new version of Accudemia including better integration with Outlook and email clients.  Before this release, the appointment confirmations & cancelations were displayed as plain-text in the email client.
Starting today you will receive the notifications with an option to add the event to the calendar.
For example, if you using Gmail, you will see this:

Microsoft Outlook users will see it like this:

OK. The data isn’t real, but both the student and the tutor will receive the notifications like this.  It’s also supported by the latest version of Mozilla Thunderbird and iPhones.
Appointment updates and cancelations are emailed the same way. Because it's compatible with most email clients, there's no option to enable/disable Outlook integration.  It’s already enabled for everyone using Accudemia.
Enjoy!

Share student information with the professors

Did you know that you can ask the student if they want to share their visit with the professor?It’s very simple, just go to the Control Panel > General and you will see an option that says  “Ask student whether to report visit to professor”.  It’s unchecked by default, but if you enable it, students will be asked like this:Then, in the Administration site you can filter the logs to show only those who selected “Yes”. It can be done in either the Session Comments report or in the Session Logs screen, you decide.Tip: if you use the Session Comments report to get the comments, you can even share the results with one click!  Easy to use and share! Enjoy!

Add notes to students waiting in the line

We have been publishing some small changes in Accudemia to make it more easy to use and friendly.If you use the Waiting Lines, you probably have noticed that you can add Session Log Comments for the students waiting in the line. Just double click on the student waiting and you will the option to save comments:Then, when you sign-in the student, those comments will be saved in the Session Log that is created.  If the student is removed from the line, for example, the comments are discarded and not saved.You can always view those comments in the Comments reports available in Accudemia, or go to the Session Logs screen to view and/or change the past comments.Hope you like it!

Accudemia Updates on July 3rd

These are the things you need to know after the update that we did today:All Users:You don’t have to do anything special. We have increased the security of the information stored in our servers.Some users might receive a message saying that your password has expired. If that’s your case, then you need to go to the Accudemia login screen and click on the  “Forgot your password?”  link.Once there, type your ID and email address to reset your password.  Follow the instructions in the email received to complete the password reset. If you are not able to reset your password that way, it might be because we don’t have your email address on file, which means that we cannot verify your identity and you need to contact your center’s administrator so they can reset it for you.IT Administrators:As we announced a couple weeks ago, you will need to update the import utility (ADX) for it to work. You will also need to update your Accudemia’s password.To update your password, access Accudemia, and c…
