Admissions Events

View the entire path of each student from their first inquiry, all the way to move in day.

Request family or student-influencer contact information on registration forms so they can also receive important reminders and communications.

Reduce manual, repetitive tasks by using event cloning, recurring events, email and landing page templates, and Action Plan tracking.

Our limited-click registration forms help increase completion rates and ask questions that help you identify "right fit" students before they get to your campus. View all of this data in their contact record, right next to other admissions data.

Leverage the power of the Process Builder and Flows to automate your Salesforce SMS communication. Our easy to use Apex action provides you with ultimate flexibility to add outbound texts to your automated processes.
