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 click on  My Profile:

Then, click on the  (Set Password)  link, type your new password and click  Accept  to close the popup. Click  Save Changes  to finish.

Now, open ADX as you would normally do, but instead of logging in, click on  More Options  and then on  Version Information:

Click  Yes  to check for updates.  Since the update is mandatory, it will start to automatically download the new version of ADX.

Once you have reset your password and updated ADX, you’re all set!

Happy Independence Day!

The Accudemia Team

Tired of that default login page?

UPDATE:This is no longer necessary. Go to the Control Panel > Appearance and Themes to update the login instructions. Also, the screenshot shown below does not reflect the actual default page. See updated post.

Most users never notice that the standard page shown to access Accudemia is just an example. You can always change the way it looks simply by sending us the new page.

Also, it’s possible to stop using that page and have a better integration in your own site. You can put the login frame into your page; let’s see how to do that. You might want to contact the administrator of your website in order to do this, it will be a bit complex if you have never dealt with HTML code.
Now, the only thing you have to do is include the following code in your page’s source:

1-click sign-in for staff members now available

Productivity is essential when a center is busy and there's a long line of students waiting. Hopefully that's not your case, but in any case if we can save tutors, advisors or counselors a few seconds of their time, we have made their job easier and more valuable.Starting today, we're rolling out an update that lets staff members sign-in and sign-out with only one click (OK, maybe two).On the top-right part of the screen, staff members will see a button indicating whether they are signed-in or not. Clicking there will show a small popup to let them sign-in or sign-out, without having to leave the screen they are currently on.When signed-out:
When signed-in:If you are an administrator and don't think this is useful or want to disable it for any reason, you can do so in the Control Panel. Click on "User Accounts" and uncheck the option "Tutors can sign them in and out from any screen".Leave your comments below if you find this feature useful!

Make a subject area available to all students and/or in all centers without importing files!

If you go to edit a Subject Area you’ll see that you have now two new options: “Available to all Students” and “Available in All centers”.

The first option is very handy in the situation where you are using enrollment but you have a subject area that should be available to all students. Before this option, you would have to upload an import file with all the students and the corresponding subject area, but now you just check this option in and that’s it!

The second option will help you associate a subject area to all the centers in your system. Again, before this option an import file was needed in order to save this relationship.

You can also set this options via ADX when you import courses!

You can see these options in the image below…
