SSC Campus - Campaigns: Appointment Campaigns

 

Appointment Campaigns
Campus Appointment Campaigns enable the advisor to request that specific students select a specific date and time in which to schedule an appointment instead of the advisor creating appointments for each and every student.  This feature is commonly used when an advisor must meet with all of their students at least once per term.  To begin, click on Appointment Campaigns under quick links and follow the setup steps.

Then click on Appointment Campaign under Actions on the left hand side and follow the steps below.
Step 1: Define the Campaign
SSC Appointment Campaigns enable the advisor to request that specific students select a specific date and time in which to schedule an appointment instead of the advisor creating appointments for each and every student.  This feature is commonly used when an advisor must meet with all of their students at least once per term.  To begin, click on Appointment Campaigns under Options > Create a New Campaign and follow the setup steps.
Enter the Name of Campaign:
The name of the campaign only appears to the advisor.  This needs to be a name that makes sense to you.
Email Subject:
The topic will be the subject of the email going to the student.
Special Instructions to Student:
This will be your message to the student.
Choose the Advisors for the Appointment Campaign:
Will let you select multiple advisors if desired.  For instance, if you want a student to meet with you or any other advisor, select them here.
Choose the Start and End Date:
This will be the date range for which you want the students to make their appointments.
Length of the Appointment:
This is where you define exactly how long the appointment will be.  Durations include 10, 15, 30, 45, and 60 minute intervals.

Step 2: Select Recipients of Campaign

Step 3: Add Advisors to Campaign
You will need to select yourself as the advisor for the campaign.  You may also have the option to select additional advisors to make them available for appointments based on the campaign.  Advisors will need to have availability defined before they can be added to an appointment campaign.

Note: If your school does not use Campaign Availability you can check the box to Include Appointment Availabilities to show available advisors.  This section will default to search for campaign availabilities first.
Step 4: Compose Your Message
Compose the message that you will send to students in the invitation to schedule a tutoring appointment through the campaign.
Subject:
The topic will be the subject of the email going to the student.
Instructions or Notes:
This will be your message to the student.
Note: This screen will also give you a preview of what the invite will look like.
Step 5: Confirm and Send
Please make sure that you review your selected options before you start the campaign.  Click Send when you are ready to email the invites to the selected students.
Review the campaign details one more time and then click Send.
