3Upon logging into ITT, the first page you will see is “My Dashboard”. In “My Dashboard” you will be able to manage your workload, manage service logsand see any comments from your supervisor.“My Dashboard” also has three dropdown menus: My DashboardStudentReports.We will briefly review each of the dropdown menus.
4Manage Workload: This is where you will build your workload and log your time with students. To create a new workload you will click on the “new workload” button on the right side of the screen.
5The next page you will see is the Workload Information screen. Enter the date and a description of the workload and click on save.Ex. You are seeing students at Rolling Hills, you can use “Rolling Hills” as the description of your workload.Another example is if you have a set schedule every day, you use day of the week as your description.Your workload is now saved and you can begin to add your students.
6Click on the “add student” button Click on the “add student” button. This will bring you to the page seen below.The “available students” box contains the names of all the students that you provide service to.Select the student(s) you wish to add to your workload, their names will become highlighted, and usethe arrow buttons (located between the two student boxes) to move the students to the “selected students”box.Now select “Add Students to Workload”.
7Next, locate the students you will see in groups Next, locate the students you will see in groups. Using the “G”, or group buttons you can creategroups. The “G” in the first column will start a new group. To add additional students to a groupyou will select the “G” next to a students name from the second column. It is not necessary to assign students seen individually to a group.For example, selecting the “G” in the first column next to John Garman creates “Group 1”.John is seen with Victoria Gray and Sabrina Acevedo, so I will select the “G” from the secondcolumn next to Victoria & Sabrina’s names. This will place them in a group together.You will see a “1” in the column to the far right under the heading “Group” next to each student’sname.Once you have completed assigning groups click “Save”.
8Another feature is the replicate button, the “R” to the left of each student’s name. This button is usedwhen you will be seeing a student twice on the same day.For example, John Garman was being seen in a group, but will now also be seen individually on the sameday. Simply click on the “R” button and a blank individual service record will be added for John.Once all your Students have been added, grouped and/or replicated you are now ready to beginlogging your work day.
9To add time for a student, click on the pencil/pink tablet to the left of their name. You will see anarea for “Service Type”, “Treatment Codes”, and “Progress Indicator”. Please note that all threeareas need to be filled in.The “Progress Indicator” is broken up into two categories, student and non-student.Please note that you may select more than one treatment code, but you may only select oneprogress indicator.Once you have completed this first page, click on the “Time” tab.
10The “Time” tab is where you will add the amount of time (in MINUTES) that you spend with each Student.The time you spend working with, or on behalf of a student will be logged in three color coded areas.Please refer to the “Itinerant Services Reporting” Sheet to clarify where to log your time for specific services.Once you have entered all your time you may select the “Notes” tab.
11you cannot be certain that your log has been saved. The note screen is where you should write your daily notes and summary.The daily notes can also be printed in report form and will be discussed later in this manual.The summary is especially important for those students receiving Medical Access, and will print outon the students MA Log. (please note, the summary can be written once a month, or updated after each session.)NOTE: All ITT users should be noting their monthly summaries on this system at the end of the month- as opposed to handwriting- so that electronic signatures may be used when ready.Once you have entered your daily notes and/or summary click on “Save”. You will receive a noticetowards the top left side of the screen that states “Service Log Saved”. If you do not see this noticeyou cannot be certain that your log has been saved.
12You can now move to the next student on your workload. On the right side of the screen a box appears with your student list for the day.Select the next student you wish to log time for.The student list is color coded and will help you to keep track of where you are.Green means the students log has been recorded accurately and saved. Yellow means you arecurrently working on this student’s record. Pink means that no time has been entered for thestudent.
13Another feature is the “Minutes This Month” log at the top of the student record. This logs how much time the student has received for the current month.To the right of “Minutes This Month” is the “Hours Logged Today”. “Hours Logged Today” showshow many hours you have entered for the day. It will change each time you log time for a student.Please note that groups will only be logged as one session.
14If you go back to “Manage Workload” you will see the calendar view with your workload. If your schedule is the same each day, you can open the workload and do a “Save As”. This willsave the workload to future dates. Please note that the “Save As” function will only allow you tosave workloads up to 60 days out. It is especially critical that you do not enter TIME for a student in advance of delivery!

Logs are to be submitted no later than the 5th of the month for the previous month’s time.To do so you will go to “My Dashboard” and select “Manage Service Logs”.You will be brought to the following page:Enter the date range you want to run service logs for and click “Select”.This will bring up all the service logs for the selected date range.

This report gives you a detailed listing of the students on yourcaseload as well as the services they receive. Please remember, all services are combined and listed inminutes.For example, if a student is seen once a week for 30 minutes in a group and once a week for 30 minutesindividually, their frequency will show as 60 minutes per week.

19The next report is the Itinerant Log The next report is the Itinerant Log.

You canalso select “All” and it will give you a one page monthly glance for each of your students.To print a copy select the format you want from the dropdown menu and click on “Export”.
20This will generate your MA Logs to be submitted for reimbursement. MA Log: The MA Log is basically the same report as the Itinerant Log, however the MA Logcontains a signature line. You will select the school year, month, and select “All” from the student list.This will generate your MA Logs to be submitted for reimbursement.(please note, the supervisor signature line is used primarily for SPL and OT assistants only and not required for all therapists.)Please note that your MA Logs will not generate until your service logs have been approved by yoursupervisor.
