Report on Advising -versus- Notes

“Report on Advising”

  • Student, by default, WILL SEE these (no option for student not to have access)
  • Use after meeting with a student
  • Allows to mark student as “no-show”, tracks time you spent with the student
  • Can note specific course discussed in meeting for tracking purposes
  • Will allow you to do a lot of reporting on the type of contact you’ve had with students over a specified time period.

“Notes”

  • Advisors ONLY note, unless you check the student’s name
  • Use for all other contact other than meetings
    • e.g., email exchange, status updates, etc.
  • Ideally used for non-student intervention information

* You are able to put attachments in both types of documentation
** You are able to include links in both types of documentation
*** You are able to assign a reason for both notes and reports on advising
