The Fedena team loves building new features that enable you to do things that weren’t possible before. But sometimes, it’s the small details that make a big difference. Along with all the big features that we have been releasing, there are also a number of little features and improvements we’ve made to Fedena. Here are some recently introduced features and improvements that will allow you to personalize Fedena and improve your efficiency as well.

Date Format

Fedena comes with a standard format for showing dates. However, you can change the date format to what you’d like in the General settings page. The date formats you can choose from are:

  • DMY – Date/Month/Year
  • MDY – Month/Date/Year
  • YMD – Year/Month/Date

In addition to the format, you can also choose a date separator you want to use, a forward slash (/) or a hyphen (-).
Something to note is that wherever dates are displayed in Fedena, they are displayed in predefined long formats (March 10, 1986) or short formats (10/03/1986).

K-12 vs. Higher Education

What type of institution are you? A K-12 institution who teaches preschool to class 12 or a college or university that offers various courses? You can choose your institution type in the General settings page.

  • If you select K-12 as the institution type, the term ‘Class’ is used throughout Fedena’s interface to indicate ‘a year of education’. ‘A year of education’ can be, Grade 7, Class 7, Standard 7, or Form 7, depending on your country’s educational system.
  • If you select Higher Education as the institution type, the term ‘Course’ is used throughout Fedena’s interface to indicate ‘the study of a particular topic’ such as, Bachelor of Zoology, Master of Business Administration, and so on.

Instant Fee Particulars & Instant Fee Discounts

It can be a challenging task to schedule and track fee payments for all the students in your institution. Sometime, after meticulous planning and scheduling, you realize you have left out some students, or there are some last minute fees that a student has to pay. In such instances, you need not go through the complete process of creating fee categories, fee particulars, fee discounts, fines, and then setting up a new fee collection schedule. You can create instant fee particulars and instant fee discounts at the time of collecting and processing student fees.

Course-wise Exam

If two or more batches of a course are being taught the same subjects, you can schedule an exam for all batches, or only selected batches at the same time.

  1. Go to the Create exam page (Module access icon > Academics > Examination > Exam Management).
  2. In the top right, click the Course-wise Exam button and then schedule an exam.Course-wise Exam (1)

Processing all student fees. One screen.

Why go to a different module every time you need to collect and process tuition, exam, hostel, transport, or any other fees for a student? It can all be done form one screen in the Finance module.
You can either do it when collecting fees batch-wise:

Processing all student fees (1)

Or when collecting fees from each student using the ‘Pay All Fees’ option:

Activating and Deactivating Batches

When all students of a batch are transferred or graduated, the batch automatically becomes inactive. But did you know you can also manually activate and deactivate batches from the Manage Batch page (module access icon > Administration > Settings > Manage Course/Batch > Manage Batch)? Say you’ve created a batch and then decided you don’t want to use it immediately. So you don’t want to delete it, but at the same time you don’t want empty batches to appear in all the dropdown lists. In such instances, you can deactivate the batch temporarily and activate it only when you decide to use it.

Or, if you just want to view the list of inactive batches, you can do that as well.
