BigSIS Features (aka 'modules')

The features are components of functionality that can extend your BigSIS installation. You decide what you need and add more as you grow.

Leads Management with Tasks

The Leads Management with Tasks tool is an admissions module that allows you to keep track of prospective students (“leads”) from the first inquiry through the application and visitation phases and on through enrollment. You can set up your own workflow that conforms to your school’s admissions process, creating and assigning tasks for each team member to complete in order to keep the admissions process flowing from beginning to end.

You will also have the option to make public and private sub-calendars by controlling the viewing permissions of your calendar users.

The DocumentCenter allows you to upload unlimited documents in any format (PDF, JPEG, MS Word, etc.), for parents or other users to download and view. It will also be where reports, such as transcripts and the student reports, are output in PDF format that are then automatically shared with the parents of the students (at your discretion) via the portal.
