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.

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. Like, in this case,  you are looking for students in different school houses who can take part in the cultural event. You might need the Admission number of the students along with the First Name, Batch, Gender, which House and if Interested in Cultural Events.
 
Step 4: After you save it, you have to get the report for which you have to select the respected report and click on ‘Show Report’.
 
You can see the report and can also get a ‘Print’ of it. Or ‘Export CSV’ of the same.
 
So, whatever custom report you want to make with student information, you can easily do it with Custom Report plugin of Fedena. You can do it yourself or you can also give this privilege to any employee of your institution to do the same.

User Management & Privileges: How it Works

Being the admin of any institution, you have a lot to manage like; different employees, students and parents. But when your institution is powered by Fedena, your tough job gets a lot easier. With the help of this award-winning school management software, you can easily manage your employees and staffs. In Fedena, there are four types of users- the Admin, students, parents and employees. Employees can be further subdivided on the basis of the privileges assigned to them by the admin. In this article, you will get to know how you can manage and set privileges to your employees.


How to manage users

When you need to manage different users of your institution in Fedena, you just need to login with your id. Being the admin, you have the power to manage your employees, all you need to do is, go to the Dashboard and then to ‘Manage Users’ in Dashboard.

You can search the users you want to find, and can easily make all the necessary change or up-gradations. For students, you can view the entire profile of the student and change the password if needed.

For employees, you can see their profile, change password and even edit the privileges assigned to them.

For parents, you can change the password.

How to assign privileges to users
You can assign different privileges to your employees. For this, you need to search the respective employee and go to ‘Edit Privilege’.

Here, you can set privileges for your employees. The employees will henceforth be eligible to carry on the task assigned to them. Suppose, an employee is assigned the privilege of ‘Examination Control’, the employee will have the ‘Examination’ icon on his/her dashboard. A screenshot of the same is provided below:

Follow the link to know what each privilege refers to when assigned to an employee.
Note: As the admin, you can assign privileges to your employees at any time you want or can also do the same during the time of recruitment for the particular employee.

Sibling management

How to use Fedena’s New Sibling Management Feature?

 Does your institution have more than one child of the same parents as students? Congrats. A sibling of an existing student joining your institution proves the trust and loyalty of the parents in the school’s vision and administration. Fedena is set to launch a new feature – Sibling Management that will minimize the effort of the admin to enter and store parents’ information once again when a sibling of an already existing student gets admitted to the school.
Being the admin of any educational institution, you had to go through the ordeal of filling up information related to parents during the time of admission of any new students. It can become even more painful if you have to store the same information once again in case any sibling of an existing student gets admitted to your school. But your work can be made easy with the help of this new feature of Fedena. If you are eager to know how your workload can be simplified, read through the article about this amazing feature.

The step-by-step manual:

Step 1:
Firstly, being the admin, you need to make some changes in the General Settings to enable the sibling feature. For this, go to ‘General Settings’ from ‘Settings’ in the Dashboard. In ‘General Settings’ click on ‘Enable Sibling’ option.

Step 2:
Go back to ‘Dashboard’ and click on to ‘Admission’ to fill in the details of the new sibling getting admitted to your school. Once you save the name and other details and click on ‘Save & Proceed’, you will be taken to the page which will help you add the sibling to the existing student.

You can find the required student to whom you need to add the sibling by using the ‘Search’ option and this would add the parent details of the existing student to the new sibling getting admitted.
Step 3:
In case, you want to change the sibling added to the existing students, you can do it using the ‘Configure sibling’ option that is available in the guardians’ page. The guardian’s page can be reached by clicking on the student’s profile and you have the ‘Guardians’ option on right-hand top bar.

Once you go to the guardians’ page, you will get the option of configuring sibling.

Step 4:

When any parent login, he or she can easily switch to any of the children and see the details and the present thread will showcase details of the particular child until it is changed or switched. 

This feature will surely help you save some useful time and invest the time in things that are more important and relevant. For a smarter way to do this, switch to Fedena.

Try the All New Email Alert Plugin & Never miss Another Alert from Fedena

We have already seen what great innovations have been introduced by the award winning school management software, Fedena. Now, we get a glimpse of what is all set to be launched by Fedena, called Email Alert Plugin. So far, we have seen that whenever we have any notifications in Fedena, we could only see them when we login to Fedena. But with the new Email Alert Plugin, you don’t have to login to Fedena every time to check notifications; you will be getting email alerts of the same. The best part about this plugin is that emails can be send automatically as well as manually. Besides, emailing to more than one person is also possible with this plugin.

Before you enjoy the advantages of this plugin, you better know the right way to use it. This article will describe in steps how the Email Alert plugin can be used to make the most of it.

Step 1: Being the admin, you have the power to send  emails to employees, guardians and students and can also give privilege to any of your employee who can do the same on your behalf. Firstly, login to Fedena with your id and go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Email’.

There are two types of features allotted to you as an admin and also the privileged user- Send Email to employees, guardians and students and Email Alert Settings.

Step 2: When you want to send emails to employees or students or guardians, you need to click to the respective link and fill in all information required and send. All you need to do is to select the particular batch and write the ‘Subject’ and the ‘Message’ to be sent in each of the link.


Step 3: When you click on ‘Settings’, it will take you to the page that allows you to create automatic emails for particular recipients on specific events present. You just need to click on the respective entrant.


So far, only 16 events have been added to the this plugin which are categorized under common event creation for all, event creation for employee and batches separately.

Step 4: When you login as a privileged employee, you have to go to Fedena and go to ‘More’ and then to ‘Email’.

Being a privileged employee, you can also access the Email Alert Settings along with Email, only if the admin assigns you that.

This plugin will surely be of great help to Fedena users as they don’t have to login to Fedena to get notifications. All notifications are just an email away!

Learn How Employee Leave Management System Works in Fedena?

Do you still use the same old register books to mark the attendance of your employees? If yes, then you are killing your precious time that can be used in other fruitful tasks. The best option to those old register books is the Employee Leave Management, a unique feature from the award-winning school ERP software solution, Fedena. This feature is not just about maintaining attendance of employees, it’s more than that. Learn, how the employee leave management system works.

The Employee Leave Management feature of Fedena has four parts- ‘Add Leave types’, ‘Attendance Report’, ‘Attendance Register’ and ‘Reset Leave’. If you login as an admin, then on arriving the dashboard, you can see these features by selecting ‘More’, then ‘Human Resource’ and finally ‘Employee Leave Management’.
The four main parts of the Employee Leave Management are:
Attendance Register

With the Attendance Register, you can actually see the entire attendance register of a particular subject with all the details of any month. All you need to do is to select the department for which you want to see the attendance register. You can mark any employee ‘absent’ in the register.

Add Leave Types

With the help of this one, you can add any kind of leave for employees like ‘casual leave’ or ‘sick leave’. Plus, you can also edit or delete any existing or active leave type from the list.

Attendance Report

The Attendance Report is a fast way to get the attendance report of all the employees of a particular department. This can be achieved when you select the particular department of which you want the attendance report.

Reset Leave

The ‘Reset Leave’ option allows the employees to renew their leaves with the help of two options- either using the ‘carry forward’ option or without it. If you want the ‘carry forward’ option, you need to go to ‘Add Leave Types’ where you get the ‘Enable carry forward option’. ‘Reset Leave’ offers you 4 categories- ‘Reset All’, ‘Individual Reset’, ‘Department Reset’ and the ‘Leave Reset Settings’.

How employees can apply for leave?
When you are an employee eager to apply for leave, you need to login with your id and go to ‘Leave’ in Dashboard. Then you need to apply for a leave with all the necessary details required for the application. Your leave is only valid only when your reporting manager approves it.

When you are using Fedena in your mobile, you can apply for leave by logging through your mobile and going to ‘Leave Application’ in Dashboard. You, then, need to fill up all details and submit it, for your manager to approve or deny.

How reporting managers can approve/deny leaves?
When an employee reporting you applies for leave, you get a notification under ‘New Leaves’ which you can either approve or deny. To do this, you need to login with your id and go to ‘Leaves’ in Dashboard and go to ‘New Leaves’ where you get the notification of any leaves applied by your reporting employee.

You can ‘approve’ or ‘deny’ your employees leave. Your decision will be delivered to your employee as a notification under ‘My Leaves’ and the leaves will be automatically updated in the ‘Attendance Register’ under the respected employee.


So, discard those pens and leave application forms and adopt this smarter and faster way to get your leaves approved.
