SCOIR has a new tab name to help organize your school-wide data in one area. The new name is called School Account & Settings. This tab is where you will find your faculty, student permissions settings, GPA settings and school documents such as the school profile.
Navigate to your Name | School Account & Settings.
On the left side, the tab will default to Staff, but also available are Account Settings as well as Documents & Templates. NOTE: Admin. Counselor or Primary Counselor permissions are needed to view Account Settings tab.
If you do not have an Admin or Primary Counselor Role in SCOIR, you will see this:
This is where Counselors and Teachers are added to SCOIR. While Teachers can be added via the Data Management | Add/Update Teachers import process as well, they will show here in your staff list.
This display is your faculty list where new Users can be individually added, removed or invited to join SCOIR.
This tab is designed to contain all of your SCOIR settings and permissions. The Process Application Materials reflects the ability to send student application materials to Colleges as well as teacher recommendations. This area will reflect the status of your SCOIR settings and will either be Enabled or Disabled.
Process Applications Materials
Clicking on the Blue Link will send a message to SCOIR Support indicating a request to change the status of this feature.
The GPA Preferences show your school's current GPA settings, using either Weighted GPA, Unweighted GPA or both, including the low and high range. If both Weighted GPA and Unweighted GPA are selected, the primary GPA will be indicated by the 'Primary' tab.
Changes can be made to GPA settings by contacting SCOIR support by clicking on the blue link.
Heat Map Display Settings
The Heat Maps are controlled by the GPA and SAT or ACT tests. Selection can be made here to indicate the preferred test type.
In addition, selection can be made to display the heat map for students, based on a minimum number of applications. Five is the default, but this can be adjusted to show less or more. Ensure that SAVE is used to save any adjustments made to the default.
We offer the ability to either allow or restrict a student's ability to update/edit their own standardized tests or GPA scores, in SCOIR. The default value will allow students access to these scores. Selecting no removes the ability for the student to add or update their own scores.
Changing communication options will either allow or restrict email messages from reaching students and/or parents.
Communication Planner emails are those set up in the Planner by you or your team. Bulk Messages are the messages sent directly from a counselor and College Visit Notifications are those added visits that counselors have setup on the College tab.
Documents and Templates
The School Profile is now moved to the Documents & Templates Tab under the School Account Settings.
Once uploaded, the view will change to allow the ability to View, Replace and Delete this profile.
