TECH TALK SESSION
Accudemia’s referral system allows you to track referrals in two ways: referrals to your location, and referrals from your location. This week’s Tech Talk, hosted by Senior Support Specialist Nick Armstrong, focused on the former, specifically on the most common type of referral we see our clients use: those from instructors. This is when an instructor refers a student to your area because they believe the student could benefit from your services. Watch the full talk here or read on to learn the main highlights!
Common Referral Questions
Nick addressed some common questions our staff receives about referrals. The first is, “Can anyone fill out a referral?” Within Accudemia, referrals must be filled out by instructors who are assigned to at least one class. However, keep in mind that you can assign instructor roles to anyone you want, so if there are staff members in other areas that may need to fill out referrals, you can give them the Instructor role and create “classes” that include all the students they may need to refer. This could include advisors or staff from another student service.
The second most common question about the topic is, “Do instructors have to log in to submit a referral?” For security purposes, a user must be logged in to Accudemia to submit a referral, but if you have single sign-on enabled for your account, this process is much easier for all users. This means that instructors (along with all of your users) will not have to memorize a separate set of login credentials for Accudemia; they’ll simply be able to sign in from the college website.
Setting Up Referrals
Setting up referrals in Accudemia is a simple process with just a few steps.
