While Fluentify is pretty easy to use during sessions, (click, connect, and go) the platform can sometimes be tricky when navigating the various pages during our post-session processes. The programmers have our ever-growing “tutor wish list”, but until then I wanted to provide some helpful tips to make your lives a little easier.
1. View upcoming session student profiles
On right sidebar> click student name (chat opens) > click name in orange at top → takes to profile
PS: You can access them the same way during a session via the internal chat
2. Filling out feedback
Instead of doing this via the ‘manage sessions’ page..
On the right sidebar> Click on gray “next sessions” box > outstanding feedback appear
3. Unread Messages
If the “messages” tab is left open via the right sidebar for longer than 5 minutes, it automatically assumes that you have read any new messages. So, make sure not to leave the messages tab open so that you don’t lose any unread messages from your students.
4. Viewing student chat history
To view the full chat history with a student…
On the right sidebar > Click on ‘messages’ > search student name > open thread
*Sometimes full thread isn’t available in the session page; always make sure to check it out before the session if you need to
5. Session reminder pop-up
We have all fallen victim to the 5 minute pop-up that alerts us of our upcoming sessions just as we are finishing our very detailed feedback form. HOWEVER, if you wait until the exact minute of the session reminder pop-up (5 minutes before your upcoming session) and close it, you can fill out feedback forms without further interruption.
As we continue to develop the platform, add tools, and fix bugs, we promise to make the Fluentify teaching experience as authentic, fun, and rewarding as possible.
