3 ways to add a course From the menuFrom the course screenAlt + C
Saving your work…. Any Button EXCEPT Undo Abandon Esc Will SAVE edits Save Screen Remains Open OK/Close (Closes Screen) If you have NOT saved changes, will UnDo any Edits (Screen Remains Open) ) You do NOT have to hit SAVE Before doing OK/Close If you have NOT saved changes, will UnDo any Edits (Closes Screen) Looks up (finds) a new Course (also SAVES)
Why is my screen different?
Preferences! A checked field appears on the screen, an unchecked field does not.
BIG, BIG, DEALS!
Active Button Active Check should be true (checked) when a course is open for registration
The Active Button has no superhero capabilities!!!!! When Adding New Registrations.. It allows you to ONLY show Courses that ARE open for Registrations…
Once a class no longer accepts NEW registrations, it should be made inactive This may be a job for your Student Manager Guru!
A course that is locked does not allow anyone to add or edit registrations. (Used with Road Warrior) For accounting purposes lock a course to prevent changes. Eg: after final Audit.
Recording CEU’s, Hours, Min & Max will pay off in the long run, making reporting, transcripts & go/no go decisions easier.
Another BIG BIG Deal !
