Accudemia 6.0 heads up


The wait is finally over and we are ready to release a new version of Accudemia.  This version has the Phase I enhancements we announced earlier.  Watch the accompanying short video for a sneak peek and to know what to expect.

Your Accudemia software will be upgraded to the new version in the next few days.  We will do the work and you do not have to do anything at your end.  Once the upgrade is completed, your Accudemia software will be running with the much improved interface.  For a smoother transition, we will perform the upgrade after work hours so you’ll see the new version when you start in the morning.

Did you know?  It took 3 months of intense work from our software developers to create this new version of Accudemia. While we did a lot of in-house testing of the new version, there is always a chance that we missed something!  If you run into an issue, do not worry!  We will be standing by to address any discovered issues with the new release.  Simply email us ASAP to report the issue.  For a faster resolution, make sure to include a detailed description of the issue.

We hope you will enjoy this new version.  In addition to a much sharper and modern interface, the new version will work much better on mobile devices, which opens a lot of new capabilities for your Accudemia account.

Best Regards,

The Accudemia Team

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.

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…

Advisor? Counselor? Tutor? Pick what suits you best.

As part of our Accudemia upgrade plan, we are introducing new changes we believe you will enjoy. Accudemia is designed to work in multiple centers and each center has its own preferences and its own way to work. That has been possible since the very beginning, with the exception of choosing what terminology it should use.Starting today, each center can pick what terminology to use for its staff members. Running a Tutoring Center? An Advising Center? Now it's possible to decide exactly what word it should use depending on the context.Accudemia supports changing the terminology for Tutor (and its derivates Tutors and Tutoring) at a global level and also per center. The global term is used when a center context is not available, such as when listing all users under User Accounts. All these new configurations can be found in the Control Panel, under the Terminology section.Recommendation: Our recommendation is to set the global term to be Staff Member and then use Tutor, Advisor, Coun…
