Training in Underutilized Processes

Often, it’s the more technical processes within Synergy, and the ones that offer the greatest advantages to your district, that are not used to their full potential. Learn to harness the full power of Synergy to optimize system functionality and business processes while improving student outcomes. Learn how to use:

  • Custom Screens - Learn to add user-defined fields and tabs to existing system screens or create entirely new screens based upon your specific needs.
  • Workflows - Formalize processes you’re already following in your district and guide staff step-by-step through procedures that need to be followed correctly, such as documenting discipline issues and mass scheduling students.
  • Dashboards - Become comfortable with using Dashboard Widgets to present high-level, mission-critical data to users on their Synergy home page.
  • Rules Engine - Discover how to use the Rules Engine to develop effective data validation procedures that ensure that your district data is accurate and consistent.
  • Queries & Reports - Learn how to build queries in order to analyze data and report on your district’s progress toward goals.
