Track Appointment Reschedules

Starting today, Accudemia is tracking appointment reschedules. Every time the date or time of an appointment is modified, Accudemia saves the information of the person who made the change and when they did it.

Changes in other fields are not considered as a re-schedule. If an administrator decides to update the comments or re-assign it to a different tutor, for example, it will not be considered a reschedule.

Reschedule Tracking

When an appointment is rescheduled, it will have an icon like this one:

Clicking on the name of the student will open the window in the right with the details of the reschedule:


If the appointment was re-scheduled more than once, the information of each time it was re-scheduled will be shown in multiple lines.

Filters

In addition to that information above, we have added filters to show only appointments that have been rescheduled in the "View All Appointments" screen and the "Appointment - No Shows" report.

In the View All appointments screen, you can find the filter on the left of the screen; right under the Show Canceled and Show Voided options.

Restrictions

In addition to the options mentioned above, we are adding a new restriction for appointments. Under Control Panel > Appointments, you can limit how many times an appointment can be rescheduled:


You can also set it to zero to completely disable appointment rescheduling. Note that, as in the other restrictions, this option can be overwritten by appointment administrators.

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…

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!

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…
