“Enflux attachments have become part of our early-alert process. Now, when we create student ActionPlans®, we attach an Early Alert Form and notify the course instructor of the individualized plan. We also use attachments to note top PCOA performers, so their achievement certificates appear whenever we search on their name. Having all of a student’s records in one place saves time and ensures we’re not missing key pieces of data.”
