Per-Service Options for Waiting Line and Appointments

As requested by our users, we have added new per-service options in Accudemia.

The first of the options allows you to keep a waiting line in the center only for certain services. For example, if you offer tutoring but also let students study by themselves, you might want to have a waiting line for those who require a tutor to be available. However those who are going to study without help can sign-in without delay.

The second addition is the option to hide a service from the suggestions when creating a new appointment. Some services might not be available for appointments and now you can simplify the new appointment screen by hiding them.

To edit those options, go to your center details under Centers & Classrooms and click on the Services tab:


Then, when you add or edit a service, you'll see both options available:


If you haven't migrated to Accudemia 7.0 yet, you won't see the "Hide suggestions from new appointment screen" option, since that only applies to the latest Accudemia version.

Both options will be unchecked by default, which means all students will be sent to the waiting line regardless of what service they select (if enabled in that center), and all services will be suggested when you create a new appointment.

Please note that hiding the service suggestion will only hide it, which means that users using other screens (such as the Manual/Admin mode) will still be able to create appointments for that service.

Also, don't forget to check other updates we have been adding in the full changelog.

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 su

Did you know? You can create groups from filtered reports

On reports: when you create and filter a report it "automatically" creates a User Group. After creating a report that you need, where you have filtered all of the students with " MATH "(Subject Areas), selected only the " Freshman "(Student Demographic) who have visited the center for " Tutoring "(Service Type) more than 3 times on a Visitor History report you decide you want to save that group and call them " Freshman needing Math Help ." You can do this after you run that report by visiting the User Accounts > Groups section on the left-side navigation panel. Once there simply click on the Report Generated Groups tab, then click on the report you just ran, and click edit .  At this point you can name the group and hit save changes and the group will now be available for you to use as a group filter in future reports.
