Admissions Options

Admissions managers can use the Admissions Options task to establish the month in which the reporting year begins.

Custom fields can also be created that can be used in the candidate's profile (in the Candidate Information section under the Record menu). Three different types of fields are available:

  • Text fields can be used if staff should be able to type in the candidates' information (for example, create text fields for Student Visa Type, Host Family Name, or T-Shirt Size).

  • Date fields can be used if staff should be able to enter a specific date (for example, create a date field for Student Assessment Date).

  • Defined fields can be used if staff should be able to create a dropdown list from which they can select an existing option (for example, create defined fields for Student Ranking or Parent Volunteer Interests).   

These options can all be found under Enrollment management, Admissions, followed by Admissions setup and then Admissions options.

Tip: You can add custom candidate fields to application forms. You can also filter work lists based on these fields.
