Using the Options Box

The Options box on the Student Profile page is where users can initiate actions such as messaging a student, adding notes, submitting an ad-hoc appointment report, scheduling an appointment, and adding to student lists. This guide outlines what functions are available in the Options box and provides instructions on how to use these functions.

TitanNet Student Profile Options box
  1. Messages can be sent to communicate with the student about appointments or other matters of relevance.
  2. Notes are used to add information to a student profile that is not tied to a specific appointment or campaign. Adding notes facilitates easier transmission of information between care units and creates records that can be provided directly to students.
  3. Appointment Reports (Appointment Summaries) contain information about a specific appointment or drop-in visit, including date/time, type of visit, topics of discussion, and the like.
  4. Staff/faculty users can schedule an appointment for a student or add a student to a general event.
  5. Student Lists are used to compile students into groups. Student lists can be used for tracking and to send messages and campaigns in bulk to specific populations.
  6. Alerts are used to draw attention to a student. Issuing an alert will send the student an email referring them to the relevant department, encouraging them to make an appointment, and informing them of steps they need to take.

What would you like to do?

Message Student

Sending a message to multiple students blind copies all students. Recipients will not be able to tell that the message was also sent to other students.

  1. Enter a subject in the subject line.
  2. Type in your message.

Add a Note on this Student

By default, the note will be visible to other faculty/staff TitanNet users with access to view notes. You can opt to make the note private or to make the note visible to the student. If you choose to make a note visible to the student, it appears on the Reports page in Navigate360 Student or the Reports tab on the Student Home.

The note will open in a new window. Enter the content of the note and set the relations and visibility. You can also add an attachment. When you're finished, click Save Note.

Report on Appointment

The Report on Appointment function on the Student Profile page enables a user to add an ad-hoc Appointment Summary for a student that was attended to but did not schedule an appointment or check-in for a drop-in visit.

If a student scheduled an appointment with you, it's best to file the report from that specific appointment. View instructions on completing an Appointment Summary in the Appointments tab.

The Appointment Report will open in a new window. Make any necessary changes to the Appointment Details. Then, summarize your interaction with the student in the Appointment Summary. If necessary, add a file as an attachment. Click Save this Report to save your entry.

If you are entering a meeting start and end time manually, note that Appointment Summaries must be at least 5 minutes long.
