Groups & Classes

 

Pathways Groups let you build buckets of students and placements to make day-to-day tasks easier. These buckets also allow us to do many manual tasks automatically or in bulk. For example generating reports, sending bulk emails, printing bulk mail merge letters.

Common Group Examples:

  • A traditional class or cohort of students - eg.11A or

  • An entire year of students (eg.Year 10 Work Experience) or

  • A group of VET Students across multiple classes in one study area -eg."Construction" or 

  • One teacher's VET Class - eg."Bob's Hospitality Students 2019“or

  • A list of students doing TAFE in Year 12 – eg“2019 SkillsTech– Acacia Ridge” or

Groups Drive Automation

  • Activities: Record activities against the group as a whole. For example “Parent Letters sent home on 15-Sep-2019”

  • Mail Merge: Bulk mail merge for an entire group. For example generate all the parent letters for everybody attached to a group in one click, or generate all the work experience agreements/contracts for the 110 students going out of work experience in 8 weeks.

  • Export Lists: One-Click export of the group list to give to teachers or other VET coordinators, keeping them up to date on students and their placements.

  • Bulk Email: Bulk email all the students, hosts or parents linked to the group. For example sending a “Placement Next Week” reminder.

  • Bulk SMS: Bulk SMS all the students, hosts or parents linked to the group. For example sending a “Student Arriving Today” type of SMS to a group of construction hosts, to remind them to get the Day 1 induction or process ready.
