The Assessments allow you to work with Redrock Software Corporation to set up custom assessments.
The campusColorData allows you to set up the color scheme for your Trac application. The colors of the title bar, the title text, the window background, and the window drop shadow are all set from this setting.
The CampusName appears in the upper-right corner of the Trac system under the school banner. This is a global name for all users across all profiles. Typically the name of your college or university is entered here because it applies to all profiles.
The CurrentTerm is required when importing your student registrations. This setting allows your Trac system to identify which registrations are currently active for your students. The CurrentTerm setting must be entered in a numeric format. Each new term must have a higher numeric value than the previous semester. The Trac application can identify the old registrations because their term codes are less than the CurrentTerm. Future registrations have a term code greater than the CurrentTerm. If your college or university only uses an alphanumeric term code, then you can work with Redrock Software Corporation on a translation for your terms.
The FacultyAccess settings contain configurations for the Faculty in your Trac application to provide messages and access levels.
The FitnessTrac settings contain configurations specific to a FitnessTrac Profile.
The FundDefinitions setting is used to set up a Fund Code report. This is commonly used to establish the definitions of a Perkins report.
The HTML:NoAccessMsg is displayed to users that attempt to log in to your Trac system but are unable to access the system. This might be because they do not have the correct username and password or might be due to incorrect access privileges. The message can be formatted with HTML tags to customize the style, color, or size of your message. You can include links to other pages or an email for assistance.
The Login Instructions contain settings that control the Log Student window used to sign students in and out of visits. The size of the box, instructions to sign in, and custom sign in procedures can all be setup through the Login Instructions.
The LoginLinkData setting controls a Campus and Redrock info boxes on the Default Login Screen. The boxes can be displayed or hidden and the text of the info boxes can be customized.
The Main Menu for Consultants can contain a custom tab. This setting allows you to enable the tab, name the tab, and provide content for the tab.
The Main Menu for Faculty can contain a custom tab. This setting allows you to enable the tab, name the tab, and provide content for the tab.
The Main Menu for Students can contain a custom tab. This setting allows you to enable the tab, name the tab, and provide content for the tab.
The Main Menu for Users can contain a custom tab. This setting allows you to enable the tab, name the tab, and provide content for the tab.
The MessageTypes setting is used to list the types of messages that can be used to create messages in the student record. The type Student Msg and MESSAGE are default types used by the Trac application and should be included in this list of message types. These message types can then be assigned to groups to specify which types of messages they can create and view in the student message history. (See Chapter 4: Groups > Assigning Subcenter Privileges – Center Access)
The ResourceTypes preference allows you to define the types of resources available at your Centers. Separate each resource type with a return character.
The SCRIPT:FacultyMain setting is used to create customizations on the main menu for faculty. This might be a custom message or script that is executed.
The SemesterEnd is the ending date of the current semester. The date is entered in MM/DD/YYYY format. The SemesterEnd date is used to determine the date range for ‘This Semester’ when performing searches or running reports. Choose, or enter, ‘This Semester’ to automatically use the SemesterStart and SemesterEnd dates.
The SemesterStart is the beginning date of the current semester. The date is entered in MM/DD/YYYY format. The SemesterStart date is used to determine the date range for ‘This Semester’ when performing searches or running reports. Choose, or enter, ‘This Semester’ to automatically use the SemesterStart and SemesterEnd dates.
The StatusCrossTabDefault setting is used in conjunction with the Appointment Status CrossTab report.
The statuses are just the defaults for the report. When running the report, other statuses can be entered for the report. You can use the @ symbol for the wildcard in the statuses, such as @Cancel@ for any appointment status with the word cancel in it.
