Features

The following features & modules are included in the core system of the ResLife Portal:

Programming: Proposals to Evaluations

Residential life staff can submit proposals for programs they are planning. Then supervisors can review evaluations with the ability to approve or return for modifications. After a program has been hosted, staff can easily use the approved program proposal as a starting point for drafting their program evaluation.

Program Evaluations may also be submitted for approval without the need of a previously approved program proposal. Each residential life staff member can track their individual progress towards completing expected programming categories.

New as of Summer 2017: For each submitted program proposal, your staff members will receive an email reminder approximately three (3) days prior to event date. The reminder will also indicate the approval status of their proposal. [Note: this feature is available only with Paid Subscription plans]

Program Proposals and Program Evaluations - Track Performance
Resident Engagement

Focused on Resident Engagement

Based on approved program evaluations and recorded resident attendance, view real-time data, statistics, and insights on resident involvement in your residential life programming.

Administrators can view which programs and events residents have attended. Over time, you can see if the level of engagement, per resident, has increased.

New as of Summer 2017: Set milestone levels for residents, then view a dynamically generated leader board of your most engaged residents. Also, when viewing the details of a specific resident, see which milestone levels they have achieved.

Reports and Data Visualization

Staff members are empowered to view real-time reports and data visualization as a representation of their progress towards completing expectations.

Administrators can view real-time reports and data visualization of how their staff is performing. Reports are automatically updated as program evaluations are submitted by staff members and approved by their direct supervisors.

Some examples of reports you can easily generate include:

  • Program Evaluations: Monthly Attendance by Program Category
  • Program Proposals and Evaluations: Monthly Staff Counts
  • Program Evaluations: Pulse Report
    including funding spent per programming category, and funding spent per attendee per programming category.
  • Program Categories: Monthly Counts
  • Staff Member Funding (per staff member)
  • Resident Report: Total Attendance/Points by Resident
