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!

  1. The Attendance Summary report has exactly the information we need for each course (# of unique students and total visits), but we can only filter by location. Our location has multiple services that support the same courses, and we'd like to be able to look at data separately for each service.

  2. Our tutors are often creating session logs with students from multiple course sections, for example, a tutor may hold a group session for English 101, but students who are in different sections of ENG101 with different instructors and CRNs attend. But a tutor can only use the "pick students from class" feature once - if you try to use it again, it erases the previously selected students.

  3. Can send a thank you for coming, a reminder to make a follow up appointment if needed and a link to survey if you are using a tool outside Accudemia.

  4. Show preferred name at kiosk and in logs for students.

    We have students, trans and otherwise, who do not go by the legal name on their transcripts. It is extremely disruptive to them when accudemia deadnames them every time the legal name overrides thier preferred name. For example I have a tutor who goes by a different name and he has to tell students his deadname whenever they signout and have to select a tutor. It makes the center look like an unsafe space.

  5. We want to see an audit trail for session logs. Did the student sign in themselves via a kiosk or was this manually entered (and if so, by who)? We had a student session log that was dated in the future and have no idea how it got there. We can't troubleshoot the issue if we don't know who made the log.

  6. You should place all notes as the last column in session logs and appointment downloads. When there are multiple comments or long file names, they force data from subsequent columns into a new row, which mucks up the CSV and requires a lot of reorganization.

  7. Right now, I have to give tutors administrative access to change no shows to present. Please make this part of the tutor role, rather than an admin only role. This way, tutors can change attendance status after an appointment has occurred without being made administrators.

  8. Occasionally we lose our network or internet connection. With our old tracking system, students would log attendance on a sheet of paper, and when the system came back up, we'd manually enter the hours. We would like Accudemia to add such a feature.

  9. Currently, we only have the option to include students' primary or secondary IDs in reports and in exports of session logs. It would be helpful if this option were also available for tutor information so we can cross-reference Accudemia data with our own records. This is currently very difficult to do as reports and session log exports use only tutors' chosen names (which do not match our records) or an internally created system ID that we do not have access to.

  10. The Attendance by Class report currently only allows you to filter by Location, but it would be really nice to have the filter entitled "Locations and Services" so that you can combine services from different locations.

  11. We often need to adjust schedules after the fact, for example, when a tutor calls out sick or comes in late. If we are even one minute into the time block (for us it's 30 minutes), we cannot make any changes, including blocking that tutor's availability, adding a substitute tutor, adding subject areas, increasing the number of students, etc, until the next time block.

  12. We would like to be able to set specific appointment length times (or start length times) by different Services. For example, we do academic coaching for 30 minutes and tutoring for 60 minutes. Right now, we only have one option for starting services and that time has to be all the same length. We have the ability to create appointments that are different lengths but b/c they are different we can’t actually schedule them. If we have starting services every 60 minutes, then for our 30 minute appointments (like coaching) when we go to schedule, it will only show appointments…

  14. Currently, only weekly appointment settings can be set per center. Some centers are very busy, and would therefore benefit from a daily appointment cap as it would allow them to ensure that students cannot make back-to-back appointments or several appointments in a single day.

  15. As center administrators, we spend all day using four or five of the functions in Accudemia to monitor and manage appointments. The functions we need exist in the system, but we do a lot of repetitive clicking that might be avoidable. Would Engineerica designers consider conducting a user study? I’m sure some administrators would be glad to record and narrate the interactions we have with the system over some minutes, and it could reveal ways to significantly enhance the everyday administrative experience in the system.

  16. It would be great to have a default recurring setting by service. That way whether the student books online or the center schedules it for student, if the pick a service that is weekly recurring (like tutoring and academic coaching meeting), it will automatically schedule it as recurring through the end of the semester. Right now, we have it limited so that if students book online themselves for these types of services, they can only see a week out and will schedule a one time appointment. The center then must run reports to see which students booked online for a…

  17. When a student chooses a group/workshop as a service, they should have the ability to see the available groups/workshops by title/topic, not by facilitator, otherwise they do not know what group they are signing up for. If your college is like ours, then you probably have many different workshop topics/titles, and creating a specific service for each one is not ideal, as we do not want students to have to scroll through a long list to find what they need. The scheduling system should be able to allow the facilitator's schedule to include the topic/title they are teaching and show…

  18. We would like to track who does what in the system. Currently, the system only shows actions done regarding appointments. However, it would be useful to know who creates/edits session logs, signs students in, and makes any other changes.

  19. Can we edit the virtual sign-in links past just the description and expiration date? I cannot locate where I put the link or need to update the link it connects to, can we edit the connect link and have access to the sign-in link after we create the link?

  20. When students are in session, but haven't met the minimum rules yet (for example they don't get checked in until a set required number of minutes has passed) -- it shows as no-show. That's okay, now that I know that. But what WOULD be nice is if the little pop-up informational sentence you get when you hover over the red house icon said that too. Right now that sentence just says, "The student has an appointment, but is a no-show." THAT IS CONFUSING. Please have it say something like "The student has an appointment, but is either a no-show OR…

    We will need to add a third status "In-session" that gets assigned when the student signs-in and gets updated to "Show" or "No-show" when the student signs-out.
