The next step as an Admissions Manager, is to set-up the Decision Types through onBoard > Settings > Decisions.
Most schools use the following Decision Types: Accepted, Denied, Waitlisted. For each School Decision, Candidate decisions options need to be added.
Admissions Managers will need to choose both a school decision and a school decision type, many times these match, but sometimes a school may have more than one school decision that falls under: Accepted with conditions, Accepted International - these would both be grouped under the decision type of "accepted" and allow a school to see ALL of the decisions under a single type for reporting purposes.
School decision: displays to both Admin and Parent of Candidate/Candidate if published
Comment: displays to Parent of Candidate/Candidate below "Congratulations, you have been accepted" if published
Mail Merge Template: Template can be used to print out Decision letters to be mailed. Also, if Decisions are published, Parent of Candidate/Candidate can download the letter from the Decisions tab
- Display contract only when candidate has accepted.
- When a candidate declines, show Reason for Declining list. Reasons can be added to the Reason for Declining list through onBoard > Settings > Candidate Profile Settings > Reason for Declining
- When a candidate declines, show Chosen School list. Schools can be addd to the Chosen School list through Core > School > Transfer/Sending Schools. Make sure to check off "B Candidates can choose to attend this school when declining an acceptance.
