Schedule Reports to be Sent Automatically

We have just released a new feature in Accudemia that allows power-users and administrators to send reports automatically.

In order to schedule a report, go to the Reports screen, select the report you want and the filters as you would do to view it normally. If you have the appropriate permissions, you'll see a new button "Schedule Report":

When clicked, you will be guided through a 5-step wizard:

1) Start: Enter a descriptive name of the report you are scheduling. Since this Name will be shown to the user receiving the report, you can use to describe what it is and how it’s filtered. If you are sending this to other users (eg, Instructors) you might, you can for example enter “Last 30 days of your students’ activity”.

2) Schedule: This is when the report will be sent. The max frequency is daily and you can pick at around what time it will be sent.

3) Recipients: Select who will receive the report. It can be either all active instructors, all active tutors, specific users, yourself or a list of specific email addresses. If you select instructors, tutors, or specific users, you can take advantage of dynamic filtering. That means that each different user will receive a different report filtered by their own account. See the next step to understand better how it works.

4) Report Options: Enable individual reports for instructors, tutors or students. If you selected to send the report to all instructors, and check the “Send individual email to each instructor”, then each instructor will be able to see only the information associated to his/her account.

These dynamic filtering options are only available when the recipients are either all tutors, instructors or specific users. If you selected yourself or entered the email addresses manually, the same report will be sent to all recipients.

5) Review: This is the last step. A summary of the report to be created is presented. Click Finish is everything looks fine.

Once the scheduled report has been saved, you can go to Reports > View Scheduled Reports to deleted, activate/deactivate or change the title of a scheduled report. At this time editing an existent report is not available, you would need to delete it and create it again.

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…

Implementing SSO (Single Sign-On)

Don't be intimidated by the seemingly daunting task of creating and easy way for your student, tutor, and admins to login to Accudemia via your school's portal.  It is far easier than it may seem.  As a support person here at Engineerica I noticed this feature is something that schools want to offer their users but are afraid to get started or maybe do not know where to do so.  Here we will go through the process of implementing SSO (Single Sign-On) easily for your institution.
Several Pre-RequisitesYou will need access to place hyperlinks into your webpages and create webpages/add files to your school's portal.  Usually this can be done via the Web Development Specialists at your school who can modify the files directly on your web server.  Others will need their privileges to be elevated on the school's portal or website so they can create/modify webpages on your school's website via a web-based WYSIWYG (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get) editor.You will need to obta…
