Accudemia Suggestions

Hi Accudemia Users! Each Accudemia user can add requests and/or vote on existing requests. You can give each request 1 to 3 votes to reflect its importance. Note that each user is limited to 10 votes, so make sure to use your votes on your most important requests. Requests with more votes have higher implementation priority.

Important: Use your academic email address to vote. Those from generic addresses (such as gmail.com, yahoo.com, etc) will be removed. Voting multiple users from the same college will not give additional priority.

Thanks for sending us your feedback!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. We would like to be able to control the email messages by center.

    Each center should be able to have its own templates. We should also be able to decide what email templates to use by center. If we dont want to use the reschedule email we should be able to turn that off.

    • Generate reports comparing semesters.

      For example, I would love to see a chart comparing the number of students who went to tutoring this semester compared to last Fall.

      • Add support for Shibboleth or CAS authentication for SSO authentication

        Supporting one of these would help make SSO a reality for our college. They are trusted ways to securely transmit SSO data from LDAP or SAML to your services.

        • Create automatic email when no-show limits are reached

          By adding this feature, students can be immediately notified that they are no longer able to attend their tutoring sessions without talking to the Tutoring Coordinator.

          • Intake System line built based on Service

            Right now when the Intake system is turned on every person is through into the waiting line. Instead if you could set up the waiting line to be built based on a service. So if you have two services Tutoring and Computer Use. The Tuoring people would go into the line and the people using Computers would by pass the line.

                • In the appointment wizard make the student first select the location so that it filters subjects and services for that area

                  This would be great because you already assign subject areas to centers and create services for just your center. As it stands students see all subjects and services (even if not offered at a particular location) since we are not picking a location first.

                  • Update the Appt Wizard to allow filtering by center.

                    The student should be able to choose a center when making an appt and the service they are making the appt for in that center.

                    • Allow us to generate tutor reports with specified Basic Info - such as e-mail and phone

                      We can generate a report for a group of tutors (by current term). That report shows their ID, Name, Gender and Birthdate. We don't need to see gender and birthdate. We would like to see the Contact info: E-mail and Phone number. This would be a much more useful list for coordinators and support staff.

                      • Appointment Creation

                        There are actually a few ideas with this but it all revolves around appointment creation.

                        1. Creating Appointments via New by Staff
                        When you select a center the Staff section should be filtered by which staff work in that center. Currently you can select a center and pick ANY staff even if that staff does not work in that center.

                        2. Creating Appointment via Wizard
                        After choosing subject area the next selection should be center instead of services. This way when you get to the services screen only the services for that center show instead of showing every service. By…

                        • See a Center Course Coverage Calendar

                          I would like to see a Course Coverage view in Accudemia to see what Tutors are available on a Calendar for specific Subject Areas. This would ensure that I have Tutors scheduled to cover all times through out the Center open times.

                          • Report Average Visits by Day under Traffic Analysis

                            Under Traffic Analysis right now users can get exact counts of users by day. But an average over a length of time would be helpful to determine how busy centers are for that same length of time.

                            Example
                            Now:
                            Time Peroid - 5 weeks
                            M - 100
                            T - 200
                            W -150
                            R - 100
                            F - 150

                            Suggested
                            Time Peroid - 5 weeks
                            M - 20
                            T - 40
                            W -30
                            R - 20
                            F - 30

                              We can already define the times that appointments are available at the Single Center account we have but no way to limit when walk-in or drop-in tutoring is available.

                              • Accudemia Announcements for each area have a "Display Position Number"

                                By adding a "Display Position Number" in a drop-down box with the number of announcements currently in Accudemia it would be a simple way to allow a College Administrator to organize the announcements that get displayed on the "My Homepage" screen when the users login.

                                • On survey questions have an option for default text or give other question types

                                  When students reach the survey question, all they see is a blank with the down arrow...once they click it, they see the options. I would prefer to eliminate the first click and see the options immediately.

                                  • Alert when student scans in to an area (off-campus, cafeteria, library) when they should be in a class

                                    Based on the student's schedule, the system would know when the student would be eligible to go off-campus, to the cafeteria, or to the library. If the student tries to scan in to the cafeteria when they are supposed to be in class, a bold and big alert would pop up to indicate that they cannot enter the cafeteria but need to go to class. This is a feature that is in Accutrack, but we request this feature to be added to Accudemia.

                                    • Add option to make Tutor Sign-ins not require a password

                                      Add option to make Tutor Sign-ins not require a password because we use SSO (Single Sign-On) and they technically use another password associated with that form of authentication.

                                      • Send email notification to Tutor when student scans in and selects that Tutor

                                        We have administrators listed as Tutors, and we would love for the administrator to get an email when a student scans in and is waiting for them in the waiting area so that they can know to have the student come in.

                                        • allow only certain Student Groups to make Appointments/Walk-ins for specific Services.

                                          Currently I can only limit the Subject Areas to show based on the Subject Areas we offer assistance with at the Center. I would like to be able to define what Student Groups can utilize specified Services for Walk-ins or Appointments.
