Email Link to Pay Group Balance

ACEware Cloud Development Update

Payors and Preferences

We’ve made some awesome new additions to the ACEware Cloud Environment in the last month! There is further refinement of who gets what when it comes to confirmations and receipts for registration confirmation emails, so the right information always goes to the right recipient.

A new site preferences area has been created that will be the main hub for changing and personalizing many aspects of your unique cloud instance, such as editing your basic info, FAQs, and privacy policy. Keep an eye on this area for more ways you’ll be able to customize!

The next big feature addition that Brandon has been tackling is the very robust “Payor” system, which will be much more manageable for your staff, without having to hassle with duplicated payor records, or inaccurate reporting. There is now a dedicated area for managing your payors, with tools to add, deactivate, delete, or un-attach from a profile, and to see that status at a glance.

Tip of the Month: Deactivating Reports

Student Manager provides you with over 200 reports for your use. However, you may not use all those reports, or you may have staff-created reports that are no longer necessary. 

To that end, Student Manager also provides you with a tool to deactivate unused Additional Reports in your system. To run the tool:

  1. Select Tools > Reports > Activate/Deactivate Reports
  2. Select the Report Area. For example, to deactivate a Name Roster, select the NAMEROSC area*. 
  3. Uncheck the box next to the report that you want to deactivate. 
  4. Click the OK button to save your change. 

*Don't know the names of a Report Area? See the Report Area Guide in the Online Help. 

For more information about deactivating reports, see the Activating/Deactivating Reports topic in the Online Help.

Report of the Month: Reports about Reports

Student Manager also provides you with options to see the reports in your system.  

To see the reports in your system, select Reports > Accounting > Special 1 Reg/1 Line (Deadbeat) and run one of these Additional Reports: 

  • *Reports by Area/Frequency: sorted by Report Area, Report Name, and Run Count (how many times report has been printed).  
  • *Reports by Frequency: sorted by Run Count, showing the most favorite reports printed.
  • NEW - All Reports w/Memo: shows all reports in your system including report memos, sorted by Report Area. 

Run them with a query that returns a small dataset (e.g. course number begins with and enter a single course code). It will ignore the query and return the list of reports instead. 

If you don't have these reports in your system, contact your ACEware technician and they can get them to you!
