Create Student Groups while importing your Profile Info

As you may know profile responses do not have to be mapped in ADX (Accudemia Data eXchange) when you are importing them from a CSV file.  The reason is because ADX looks specifically for them by the headings used in the import file to associate them with a specific page and question number of the Student’s Profile.

So if we are already uploading information such as the student’s Classification (i.e. Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, Graduate, etc.) to a profile response then why not make this a Student Group that your System Admins in Accudemia can use for reporting later that semester.  The reason is that Profile Responses are not typically available on most reports but Student Groups are on just about all reports in Accudemia.

If you need some refreshing on how to either creating the Profile Questionnaire or How to format the headers of your CSV to import the Profile Responses please use these links:

Here is all you need to change in your already existing ADX import job to create these Student Groups:
  1. Open the ADX application from your shortcut (on the desktop typically).

  2. Login to Accudemia (if not storing your credentials).  This requires your domain, User ID, and password.
  3. Once in ADX select an import job to edit/modify that is currently uploading your Student Profile information.
  4. Now skip ahead in the Import Job Wizard to the “Mapping” options and choose a Profile Response you want to generate Student Groups from like shown below.

    Note: Only one Profile Response can be mapped to “User Group’s Name” per import job.
  5. You should see in the Summary the Student Groups that will be created as shown below.

  6. Before you complete the wizard make sure to check the box in the Import Behaviors section to “Remove non-imported users from Groups” so that the Student Groups being imported are kept up-to-date as shown below.

  7. Continue through the wizard until you click Finish.
Done!  Now you can run the import job once or schedule it to run and your System Admins will start to send their thanks as they’ll see them when they go to do reports!

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…
