Get Ready for Staff Training
and Move In!
Hello Friends! It’s hard to believe it’s time to start preparing for move in! To help get you ready, we’ve compiled a number of updates for you in this quarter’s Roompact Recap. We’ve also created a checklist for you of common tasks to accomplish to ensure you’re ready to go on day 1!
Major Software Update
Users with Administrator permission levels will see a new icon in their sidebar! The new “Insights” feature allows you to pull special reports that will help with your administrative and assessment efforts. Some of you have requested these reports in the past and we provided them to you via email. Now you can pull them yourself! Any time you want! The following reports will be variable at launch:
- Active Residents
- Active Staff
- Active Rooms
- Agreement Completion by Building
- Events with Assessment Data
- Resident Tag Counts – All Forms
- Resident Tag Counts – Selected Form
- Staff Engagement
- Resident Phone Numbers and SMS Text Unsubscribes
We’re not done yet, either. After launch we will continuously add new reports that you may find useful. Since this is a new feature, we want to hear from you! If you have any feedback or want to see any new reports added in the future, please let us know.
Enter the Door Dec Competition
Roompact is holding its fifth annual door dec contest! Here’s how it goes. This contest is open to schools who currently use Roompact’s software on their campus. Create a door dec with the name “Roompact” on it and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org from your institutional email address (*.edu) with your name, institution, and designate if it’s in the professional or student staff category.
The door decs must be sent by September 30th at midnight local time to be considered!
PRIZES: Roompact attempts to support socially responsible, local, and minority owned businesses to the greatest extent possible. To further this aim, winners in the drawing will receive gift cards to Etsy–a site that allows you to order items from independent artisans, crafters, and small businesses.
Student staff winners will receive cards in the amounts as follows:
- 1st place(s) – $50
- Honorable mentions – $25
We’ll also be running a separate category for professional staff:
- 1st place – $50
- Honorable mentions – $25
We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming events. Stop by our booth and say hello!
