  • From the training class, you should have a "widget" on your home workspace.  If not, follow these steps to add it:

    1. First make sure a list of your applicants already exists (if not look for the training on creating a list view)

    • Click on Programs in the top level navigation, then click on Applications
    • Use the drop down in the top left to search for your program

    2. Click on Home from the top level navigation, then click on Home

    3. Click Add Widget, another box will open

    4. In the Module drop down list, select Applications.  In the Custom View drop down list, select the name that corresponds to your program.

    5. Click OK.  This will add a widget with the list of your applicants to your home workspace.

  • From the training class, you should have a "widget" on your home workspace.  If not, follow these steps to add it:

    1. First make sure a list of your inquiries already exists (if not look for the training on creating a list view)

    • Click on Contacts in the top level navigation, then click on Contacts
    • Use the drop down in the top left to search for your program

    2. Click on Home from the top level navigation, then click on Home

    3. Click Add Widget, another box will open

    4. In the Module drop down list, select Contacts.  In the Custom View drop down list, select the name that corresponds to your program.

    5. Click OK.  This will add a widget with the list of your inquiries to your home workspace.

  • The easiest way to create a List View is to Clone one that looks like what you want. 

    1. For Inquiries, go to Contacts and then Contacts.  For Applications, go to Programs then Applications.

    2. Use the drop down list in the top left corner to find a list view that looks like what you want to see

    3. Click on the View button (just right of the drop down in the previous step), then click Clone

    4. You will need to rename the View.  ALWAYS START WITH "GRAD - "!!!! Please! :-)

    5. Use the rows in the body of the Clone box to adjust the criteria to fit your needs.

    6. Save when you have finished.  The screen will update to what you requested.  If it does not look like it is selecting the students to meet your criteria you may go back and try again. 

    7. After setting your selection criteria you can arrange/add/remove columns to see the data you want (see the training on adding and removing columns).

  • 1. Open your List View

    2. Click the Add/Remove Columns button in the top left

    3. Available columns are on the left, already selected columns are on the right

    4. There are instances where a needed column may be "nested" within a heading on the left.  For example, if you are in the Applications module, scroll down on the left to the word Contact.  There is a small triangle to the left.  Clicking on that triangle opens all the fields that exist in the Contacts module.

    5. Click the check box next to any columns you want or uncheck next to any columns you do not want.

    6. Click OK to see the results

    7.  You may rearrange your columns by clicking on the column header and dragging it left or right.  You will see small green arrows that indicate you can drop the column in that spot to rearrange the order.

    8. You can sort columns by dragging the header just above the gray bar.  A green check mark will appear if you are in the proper area to drop the header.  After dropping the header in the sorting order area, you can use the small down arrrow on the right of the header to control which way the sort runs or to remove the sort.

    9. You can create dividers within your list view by hovering over a header which will show a small down arrow to the right of the header.  Click on that arrow and select Group By This Field.  This will divide your list each time the data changes under this header.

    NOTE: If you are in a list view, the results of any of the above will reflect for anyone that views this list view.  However, if you are in tab in the contact or application record, the results will only reflect in your view.

  • 1. Go to the Events module and click on the appropriate event.

    2. Click on the Attendees tab at the top.

    3. Find the appropriate person's name and click on the "Action" button for that line, select "Edit"

    4. Change the "Attendee Status" to Attended or Did Not Attend.  There are two other statuses on that screen, you do not need to change them, they are not currently being used. 

    5. Click Save.

    Note: For best results, you can have this screen ready on a laptop to check people in at the event.
