WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACCUSQL AND ACCUTRACK?
AccuSQL and AccuTrack usage is almost identical. The difference between the two programs is related to the database they use. AccuSQL uses a Microsoft SQL Server database while AccuTrack uses a Microsoft VFP 9 database. While this manual uses AccuSQL for most of the screen shots in the program, the functionality of those screens is almost identical to AccuTrack. Sections in this manual that are specific to AccuTrack will be indicated with a “For AccuTrack only” tag. The “For AccuTrack only” sections are related exclusively to database operations.
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
This manual contains detailed descriptions of the AccuSQL/AccuTrack screens and functions. Before using this manual we recommend that you go through the accompanying AccuSQL/AccuTrack Quick Start Manual. The Quick Start manual shows the “big picture” and how the various AccuSQL/AccuTrack parts fit together. It also provides a quicker introduction to AccuSQL/AccuTrack.
After reading the Quick Start Manual read this manual for a detailed look at the software. This manual has the same structure as the AccuSQL/AccuTrack screens. You can use this manual as a reference for detailed information on a certain screen by going to the pages describing it.
AccuSQL/AccuTrack can be customized via its options screen to match your center’s needs. One of the many items you can customize is Terminology. For example, a Tutoring Center can use the term “Tutor”, while an Advising Center can use the term “Advisor” for the name of the people meeting with students. Other terms you can change include:
- Category - A grouping of Activities commonly used like Services offered.
- Activity - These are typically the courses uploaded from your SIS or the break-down of special services offered in the Category chosen.
- Semester - These are the reporting periods or Terms that may go by other names.
- Seminar - These are the one-time Events or Workshops you may offer to Students to sign-up for at the Center.
There are even more options that can be configured as you'll see in this manual. Further, as of version 2016, you can even control terminology at the “Local Lab” (or Center) level. Keep this in mind while you read the manuals. For example, if you are using the software in an Advising Center and have replaced the terminology to “Advisor” then whenever you see the word “Tutor” in this manual that is what they are referring to in the set up of AccuSQL/AccuTrack.
Also, keep in mind that the background image of the software and also the button colors and title bars can be customized, so these elements might look different for you than the one shown in this manual. For this manual, the background of AccuSQL/AccuTrack has been set to the default Gray background with the button and title bar colors set by default to Green for AccuSQL or Orange for AccuTrack.
Finally, if you find errors in this manual or if you have ideas on improving it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
