Hi Gibbon users,
Gibbon does support uploads in the application process, you just need to set this up. To do this go to Admin > User Admin in the main menu, followed by Application Form Settings in the module menu. Then look for the Required Documents Options section.
Glad to see you like CSV. Cheaper than normalised tables in terms of coding, and quick to use. Sucky in more advanced circumstances, but OK in this case : )
You are spot on in terms of documentation. Here are some hints:
- Student Notification Message/Student Notification Default - on acceptance, and email can be sent to students with a welcome message. You can add to the standard message, in the first field. The second determines where such acceptance notifications are on for students by default (they can be turned on/off on a case-by-base basis when accepting applications).
- Parents Notification Message/Parents Notification Default - as above, but for parents not students (we have parents on at ICHK and students off, as we do an intro for students via form tutors when they land).
Student Default Email - should student email address be set automatically, based on a given pattern? If this is used, your system admin will receive an email asking them to set up the email account, and the value will be stored in Gibbon for the student.
Student Default Website - same as above but for student website (e.g. portfolio set, etc)
- Auto House Assign - should students be automatically assigned to a hose according to some basic heusistics to balance numbers and (I think) gender.
Hope this helps!
