Sender Info when Emailing Statements

When using the “Email Latest Statement” feature, you can now specify the Send Name and Email:

Specify Sender Name and Email with Bulk Email Latest Statement

This feature will allow recipients to reply directly to your specified email address with questions about billing. 

Gradebook Tooltip

Due to popular demand, we’ve added a tooltip to the Gradebook formulas, which will display a summary breakdown of scores based on categories selected in the formula. In the example below, the formula contains 2 weight factors, one of which contains 2 categories:

Example Gradebook Formula with 2 Weight Factors

When you hover over the grade in the Gradebook, you will see the total marks tallied for each weight factor, as well as the total marks tallied for each category within each weight factor:

This should hopefully illustrate how calculations are being made.

Auto-Logoff

We’ve enhanced our Auto-Logoff feature to check for inactivity. So if you leave your computer unattended beyond a certain time, you will be prompted to log in again:

Auto-Logoff will prompt user to Log In again

We’ll be posting separate articles on some of the other improvements mentioned here, in particular the Send Email from Template feature, as well as our new Online Forms Submission Importer, currently in Private Beta.

Due to the high demand from schools needing to implement Online Learning, we’ll be focusing the next several releases on improvements related to Learning Management (like Homework Submission, or Video Conferencing). If there are features you’d like to see in this regard, please let us know. We look forward to your feedback.
