We’re Back!

October 19, 2017

It’s been over a year since our last QuickSchools blog post. Despite the silence, we’ve been hard at work, partnering with public school districts in California to expand our offering. After more than 2 years of development, we’re now ready to share the knowledge and functionality that we’ve built with the rest of our customer base – That means YOU!

In the coming months, you can expect new and expanded modules to our core offering. This includes improvements to our Gradebook and Transcripts module, just to name a few. We’ll also release new apps to our App Store. Some examples of upcoming modules / apps are listed below:

  • Counselor Notes
  • Community Service
  • Special Education
  • Tests and Assessments
  • Expanded Health / Medical
  • Phone Surveys
  • College Letters
  • Work Permits
  • Section-based Master Scheduler and Attendance
  • Course Requests

However, one major improvement that we’re excited to share is our enhanced District / Group School setup. You can now link several schools together into a district configuration, and then allow data to be shared/transferred between schools. We’ll write a separate article with more information on this.

Here’s a summary of the improvements with the new District / Group School setup: Read more…

Announcing the New Support Site!

March 3, 2016

For many years, this blog has functioned as our living and breathing support documentation site- with each new feature we roll out, we’ve always done a blog post with a quick tutorial on how to configure things and get started. However, because of our constant development and improvements, at times valuable information gets buried in the stacks. Not ideal.

To help solve this, we built a new solution  – a comprehensive, consolidated site designed to do one thing only: make it easy to find and access information about everything QuickSchools & Apps.

So, without further ado,  we’re unveiling the new Support Site….

support.quickschools.com

Go check it out! In addition, you can find a link to it located in your account:

Now, here are some tips on using this new platform …

Advanced Student Filtering

December 31, 2015

We’ve introduced a number of improvements for filtering (searching) for students in the Students module. Currently, we have the following search options:

and now, we also have…

  • Search for Students by Custom Report – If you use the Report Creator app, you can build a Custom Report and filter for students on this report.

Here’s a screenshot of the expanded student filtering options in the Students module (screen):

Also, some modules (screens) have different access to the different types of advanced filtering. Here’s a breakdown of filtering options by module:

Active and Unenrolled Students Search Locked/Saved Search Search by Custom Report
Students Students Students
Transcripts Transcripts Transcripts
Report Cards Report Cards
Teachers
Discipline

Of course, please feel free to try out some of these out. And if you have any questions at all, just let us know – we’d love to help out.

New Report: Fee Tracking Transactions by Category & Primary Payer

If you’d like to find this report, you can do so by going to the Reports module and searching “Fee”. The new report will appear with your other fee tracking reports, and will look like the highlighted report below:
