Navigate - Issue an Ad Hoc Alert
This document provides step-by-step instructions on issuing an ad hoc alert in Navigate.
In addition to responding to a progress report campaign initiated by the Navigate leadership team that's based on specific courses, you as an instructor can submit an alert on a student through the Ad Hoc Alert process at any point in the semester.
If you've ever had student advisees, you will likely have both a Staff Home page and a Professor Home page. The Staff Home page lists all of your current advisees that are enrolled for the current term, and this tool is used more for scheduling appointments with students for advising. The Professor Home page will list all of the courses that you are teaching each semester, along with all of the students that are enrolled in each of your courses.
You file an Ad Hoc Alert the same way from both the Staff and Professor pages, using the Actions menu on the right side of the screen:
When the Issue An Alert box pops up, you'll be able to start typing a student's name in the corresponding box:
You can search by first or last name, and whatever students meet the criteria will pop up for you to select. Once you've selected a student, you will need to provide the reason(s) you believe the student needs assistance. A drop-down menu will be available for you to select a reason, and you're able to select more than one:
Once you've selected the reason(s) for concern, you are then able to select which course you're issuing the alert for:
After you've selected the course, please be sure to type out the reasoning for the alert in the Additional Comments section, that way the advising team knows what the specific reasons are for the alert:
When you're done writing the alert, simply click Submit and the Ad Hoc Alert will be sent out to all involved parties.
