Updated Canvas Integration

March 2, 2018

So we’ve recently updated our Canvas Integration Capability at QuickSchools, which we thought we’d share here, for those who are using (or want/hope to use) this module available on our QuickSchools App Store.

QuickSchools Canvas Integration App

Integrate the Grades from Canvas into the QuickSchools Gradebook

Canvas is only ONE of the many Learning Management Systems (LMS) that we integrate to. And the primary goal of this integration is to easily transfer grades from the LMS Gradebook into the QuickSchools Gradebook, for purposes of creating report cards and transcripts.

Here’s a list of recent improvements to the Canvas Integration module in particular:

  • Dropdowns have been updated to our new UI, which means you can more easily search the fields while mapping.
  • You can select which academic term to be “Active”, and only the “Active” term will be synchronized.
  • Gradebook Synchronizations can now be scheduled to run nightly (or as frequently as you want)
  • Synchronization History shows the status of each synchronization attempt, along with a log file of successfully synchronized subjects/courses.

Details of each improvement are described below: Read more…

Mass Print Statements

February 23, 2018

In Quickschools Fee Tracking, you can now print statements en mass. This is useful when you want to continuously print latest statements without having to open each family or each student’s billing information.

Once you have generated statements, you can now print these by selecting the box on the top left header of the student records. Select “All”, then again open the dropdown menu and chose the “Print Latest Statement” button. Read more…

Permanently Delete Student Record

January 18, 2018


Quickschools now supports permanent deletion of student records. For cases where you need to permanently remove a student record from the system, this is how you’d do it.

IMPORTANT! The permanent deletion of student records has been provided in part to comply with recent legislation in the EU called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Records that have been permanently deleted will not be recoverable. Please exercise EXTREME CAUTION when permanently deleting records. Deleting a student record will also delete ALL ASSOCIATED DATA, like parent info, grades, attendance, and so on.

Online Forms – Copy & Archive

December 14, 2017

When moving from year to year, instead of creating new form packets, you can simply archive and copy over the existing form packets. This is a great time saver. And, for parents filling in the forms again for the following year, they have the option of copying over the data from the previously submitted form packet.

This is extremely useful when it comes to yearly re-enrollment forms that parents must fill out each new school year.

Hide Columns in Gradebook

December 12, 2017

We have a new feature in our QuickSchools Gradebook, where you can now hide columns based on a date range. This is helpful if you have a Semester-based Gradebook, but you want to hide Quarter 1 grades as you’re putting in assessments for Quarter 2. To access the setting, first click on the Gears icon on your Gradebook:

Gradebook History / Versioning

December 7, 2017

We have a new app in the QuickSchools App Store for Gradebook History or Versioning. Basically, with this app installed, every time you save a gradebook, all columns and grades are saved and stored as a separate version. You can then go back and review what was saved and when it was saved. Finally, you can also allow your teachers to restore their gradebook from one of these previous save points:

When configuring the app, you basically have these 2 options: Read more…
