The Alerts section of the Executive Dashboard brings important information to your attention and offers quick links to related reports.
Expand each section to learn about the alert.
Wait Lists for Classes with Openings
This alert detail is pulled from Classes (menu) > Class Reports > Wait Lists w/Openings. This alert does take future enrolls into account by showing the future enroll count and "adjusted" openings counts if your organization allows future enrollments. If the "adjusted" opening count is less than 1, it will appear yellow.
Incomplete Time Entries
This alert detail pulls from Staff (menu) > Time Clock > Incomplete Time Entries.
2-3 Absences in last 14 days/4+ Absences in last 30 days
If your organization tracks absences, this alert detail pulls from Students (menu) > Student Reports > Absences-Makeups.
If your organization tracks attendance, this alert detail is pulled from Students (menu) > Student Reports > Student Attendance Report.
The students must have 2-3 (or 4+) absences in the same class for them to be included in the Dashboard alert. However, when the alert links are clicked the resulting report will include ALL of the student's absences in the 14 or 30 day period. Example: If a student is absent once in Jazz within the last 14 days they will not appear on the Dashboard alert. If that student had also been absent from Tap twice in that time period they would show on the Dashboard and when the link was clicked to go to the report all 3 of the student's absences would be shown.
If tracking attendance, keep in mind that this information is more of an attrition/retention value. The alert attempts to show the number of active students who have not attended in the last X days.
Classes Past End Date To Archive
This alert displays the number of classes that have passed their end date as a reminder to archive them. (Note: This alert does not include classes with no end date or classes with the current date as their end date.) Jackrabbit recommends you archive classes (instead of deleting them). To learn more about archiving see our Help Center article Archive Classes.
Alert detail is pulled from Students (menu) > Student Reports > Enroll History.
