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.

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…
