No need of printing pages after pages and asking your employees to collect it; you generate them easily and your employees receive even faster. Read on to find out how this fast method actually works.
The very first thing that you need to do is to create a payslip for which you need to login with your admin account and go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Human Resource’, finally moving to ‘Create Payslip’.
If you want to generate payslip of an employee from a particular department, you need to click on ‘Select employee’ which will take you to the page where you need to select the department as well as the employee.
 Clicking on any employee will take you to his/her payslip which you can generate.

Maintain your School Schedule using the Amazing Fedena Calendar

Maintaining a calendar in your institute is highly recommendable particularly when you have to deal with a lot of holidays, upcoming examinations, fee due dates and many other important events coming up. We have an excellent alternative to the traditional mode of calendar maintenance – Fedena Calendar.


To reach the Fedenacalendar, you need to login with your admin account and go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Calendar’. It will take you to the ‘Calendar’ page as shown below:
As you can see in the screenshot, you can actually mark ‘Events’, ‘Examinations’ ‘Holidays’ and ‘Dues’ as well.
How to create an event
When you need to let your students and teachers know about an upcoming event like annual function or annual sports in your institution, you can create ‘Events’ and it will come in the calendar. For this, you need to go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Event Creation’ in order to create a new event.  It will take you to the Event creation page:
Here, you need to put the start and end date of the event to be created along with the title like ‘Annual school function’ and a little description with it. If the event is a holiday, then click on ‘Is Holiday?’ and if clicked, it will be marked in green in the respected date in the calendar. If in case, it’s not selected, the event will be marked in black in the calendar. Next, you need to select if the event is meant for all and if its yes, just click to the option ‘Event common to all’. But if it’s not meant for all, then there is no need to select the option and you have to click on ‘Create Event’ which will further take you to another page to select the batch and department you want to direct the message to.
Thus, the event will be updated in the calendar and can be viewed by selected people. When you go to calendar, on selecting the respective color of events, you get the details about it on the right hand side of the page as shown below:
In the same way, you need to create exams using the ‘Examinations’ option in ‘More’ and fees dues can be created by selecting ‘Fees’ in ‘Finance’ option after you select ‘More’.

Automate the Calculation of Tax and Expenses with Fedena’s Auto Transaction Feature

 
Any amount coming to your institute is always an income; but at times, you might have to pay tax and cess for the amount that you receive. It really becomes a tough task when you have to calculate the certain percentage on the amount every time it is received. But, when your school is powered by Fedena, you should not worry about all these trivial issues. The Auto Transaction feature of Fedena helps you set a percentage that you want to divide as a tax on the amount received as income. Hence, you enter the amount you received as an income, and go to report which will display the final income received after deducting the percentage of tax as expenses.
 

One of the primary advantages of using this unique feature of Fedena is it automatically calculates the amount that is to be deducted from the total income received and is shown as expenses. All these are done without much interference of yours, other than creating a new auto transaction. Now, let us see how this auto transaction can be created and used to gain the ultimate benefit.

Create Auto Transaction
  • Firstly, login to your Fedena account and go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Finance’ and finally to ‘Automatic Transactions’. Once you are in ‘Automatic Transactions’, you need to create a new auto transaction.
  • Write the category, percentage of amount to be deducted and also the description of the transaction you are creating. After creating a new transaction, you need to go back to ‘Finance’ and then to ‘Transactions’ to create a new income event and see how the tax is being deducted.
  •  Click on ‘Add income’ and you get a page where you have to fill in all necessary details in order to create the new income.
  •  When you ‘Save’, you are allowed to go back to ‘Transactions’ and get the report for which you need to select the time limit for which you need the report. You get the report that will show the tax or any cess has been deducted and the final amount that you receive as income.
  • Thus, you have a smarter way to calculate taxes and cess to get the final income after deduction. Then, why use critical mathematical calculations for it?

Presenting the “Appframe” Innovation for Loading Third Party apps within Fedena UI

Worried about switching to third party software from Fedena that will break the user experience of users? Here we present the Appframe concept to load the third party apps directly within Fedena without breaking the user experience flow.

The product engineering team of Fedena innovates continuously and consciously to make sure Fedena evolves as a user-friendly and effective school management system. There may be times when you want to include some additional data inside Fedena and that cannot be done under the current conditions. In order to make it favorable for clients, the yet to be released Fedena AppFrame has been designed to help clients to design and install their own applications and pages within Fedena.
A lot of attention has been employed in designing this feature as there might be security issues when third party applications are allowed. UI cluttering, asking the third party to produce user wise data and authentications were the major challenges of designing and these issues have been solved wisely.

Advantages of Appframe

                    No break in UI/UX flow. The users will feel the 3rd party software hosted somewhere else as part of Fedena.

                    No switching to 3rd party software. No need to open a new browser tab or window.

                    Save time and money by using the Fedena UI elements

                    Use the existing API of Fedena to reduce development time

How the AppFrame will work?

Every AppFrame will have a client-id associated with it and it will be created by the admin. The client should be registered much before the AppFrame is created. A unique client key will be provided to each client and he will be allowed to develop an application using his own resources. The clients will be given UI spec that will be present in the application or page that he intends to showcase.

If you are interested to develop a third party app using the appframe concept, contact us.

A step by step Guide on How to Create a Custom Report Using Fedena’s Magical Custom Report Plugin

 
Are you the head of your institute, and have to create reports on students which are not the typical reports showing the marks of exams? Instead, there might be situations when you have to create a report to know about students engaged in different activities in school. When you have a cultural event at your school and you have to find out students who are active in cultural activities and this becomes a difficult task if you have to find the information by personally asking each and every student. But with Fedena, your stress is reduced to just a custom report that can be made in the easiest possible way. Read on this article as we share with you how to create custom reports with the help of Fedena.
 
Here is a report requirement that is not available in Fedena by default :
 
Suppose, you are looking for students in different school houses (for instance Red House, Blue House, Green house and Yellow House) who can contribute to the upcoming Teacher’s Day celebration at your school with some cultural activities. Now, how you find it out using Fedena.
 
Steps to create the required custom report

Step 1: The very first thing that you need to do is to create an additional field, something called as ‘Interested in cultural events’ and for this, you need to go to ‘Settings’ in dashboard and then to ‘Add Admission additional detail’. You can create another additional field as ‘House’.

You can ask your students to fill this additional field during the time of their admission or can even edit the student profiles later.
 
Step 2: Once you have created the new additional field, you need to go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Custom Report’. Click on ‘New Student Report’ to create a new custom student report.
 
Step 3: You have to name the new report and select the fields of which you want the report.

What is an API? (For those who are new to this term)

API or Application Programming Interface is nothing but a set of standard and programming instructions released by a software company to help others to access a web application. This helps people outside the company to design products that are powered by the web application. Besides, API does allow easily development of programs by ensuring the programmers that all the protocols are met on time and hence, it becomes an easier task for the developers to develop the program. Read the Wikipedia article.
