      • View student's progress and attendance information
      • Send an email to all students or all student relations using the email option in the left-hand pane.  You can send emails individually to the student, parent or advisor by clicking on the specific student in this pane.

Important notes: 
  • Alerts are based on the marking column Average. Grades will not be calculated if there are no assignments for the marking column to calculate the average column.
  • The performance summary section available on some alert pages is based on your security rights in Registrar's Office.  You must have permission to view all progress for students you teach. 
  • Student photos will appear on the alerts pages if you upload the images to the student record in Registrar's Office.
  • The contact information that displays for students and/or relations is dependent on the Supervisor setup.  See steps above.
  • Alerts are based on the marking column selected as the default in gradebooks. If the default marking column is set to Multiple, alerts will not display on the home page.
  • When emailing students, relations or advisors from an alerts page, the email will be created using your default email client rather than using NetMail, which is an optional module for The Education Edge.
  • When using the Send an email option, email addresses will be added to the BCC line in the email.  This is a privacy measure so any one recipient will not know who else received the email.
