Our new Custom Fields are very versatile, and can be used for a variety of applications. We previously posted an article about how to use the custom fields to record immunizations. Here’s an example of how Adult Education schools can use the student custom fields in QuickSchools to track Career and Employment for students after they graduate:
All fields are also report-able via our Reports Module, so you can export them to Excel for further analysis. It’s a great way of recording static fields associated with a student. And you can also arrange the fields into sections so that they can be easily read and understood.
For fields that are more dynamic in nature (say a student has 2 employment records), then the App Store would be your best bet, as the App Store supports a separate database that can store linkages to multiple records. If you’re in need of an app that’s not already available in our App Store, come chat with us, and we’ll see what we can do you.
