Fee Accounts If your institution groups finance transactions under various account heads, this new feature is for you. Fee categories, finance categories, and custom income categories can be grouped under a fee account. All transactions made for fee collections or income heads will be recorded against the particular fee account. Filter fee receipts and transaction reports by accounts to separate different types of transactions for easy accounting.

Important:

* All existing transactions and any transaction without a fee account fall under a system generated – Default Account.

* If you have already recorded transactions in this academic year, it is advisable to not use this feature mid-year as only new transactions will get the fee accounts.

* Any changes made to the account of a category does not affect already created collections. Once accounts are enabled and used, it cannot be disabled later.

* Contact your support team on how this feature can be best used for you.

Administrator, Privileged Employee Finance
Fee Receipt Templates and Receipt Sets Customize fee receipts headers and footers as required using the fee receipt templates. Receipt sets allow you to define receipt sequences that can be used for transactions under the fee category.

Design the receipt template header using the Rich Text Editor, add the header name, additional details like address, contact details, logo etc. Add footer content like payment, refund instructions in the footer area.

Important:

* To ensure data integrity, receipt templates and sets once assigned to a fee in a year should not be changed after transactions have been recorded against it.

Administrator, Privileged Employee Finance
Subjects Center Course Subjects

The new subjects center replaces the batch-wise manage subjects page. All subjects will now be created from the Course Subjects page. Using the Link Subjects option Course Subjects can be assigned to batches under a course. This flow improves the subject creation speed.

Subject Group

One or more subjects can now be grouped under a common label and shown together in the gradebook reports. Under a subject group, subjects or elective groups can be added. Other properties with respect to subjects remain the same.

Skill Sets

If a subject is evaluated on standards rather than a single mark/grade for a subject, the new skill sets can be of help. Skill sets can contain skills and subskills. Both can have an optional formula to evaluate the overall result. The skill set as a whole can also be assigned a formula to calculate the total marks for the subject.

Subject Order

Subjects order can be now defined in the subject center. This order will be reflected in the Gradebook Report Cards.

Important:

* To link existing subjects to the new mode, use ‘Connect Existing Subjects’ under Link batches.

* The manage subjects page will no longer allow the creation of new subjects. It can be used to edit existing subjects and will be deprecated in the future releases.

* Changes made to a subject like changing of an assigned skillset will not affect existing subjects and exams.

Administrator, Privileged Employee Settings
Skill-based evaluation The new skill sets can be used in gradebook exams. An exam can be made as skill-based when it is assigned to a planner. All such exams will have a skill-based mark entry mode for the subjects. Skills will be shown in all applicable report cards. Administrator, Privileged Employee Gradebook
Attendance in Reports Student Attendance data can now be shown in Gradebook Reports. It can be enabled individually for each of the 3 report cards – Exam, Term, and Planner.
