Salisbury University has launched the Navigate platform for faculty, staff, and advisors.  Driven by data and campus connections, the goal of Navigate is to support students on their path to timely degree completion.  Use this Quick Start Guide to make the most of your experience.

As a new user, the first thing you need to do is set up availability in Navigate so that students can schedule appointments to see you – or know when you are available for walk-ins. Separate (but overlapping) times can be set up for Program Planning, office hours, research mentorship, etc.  Note that locations and services can be updated upon request, so contact Melissa Boog, Heather Holmes, or Sarah Timko-Jodlbauer if you would like to see something added.

IMPORTANT NOTES:


  • Program Planning appointment availability will no longer to done in GullNet.


  • You are able to set up availability for multiple types of appointments: Program Planning, office hours, research mentorship, etc.


  • If your availability is set up in Navigate, students can sign up for an appointment through the Navigate student app.


  • When students sign up for an appointment through Navigate, they are sent an email reminder the day before and a text message reminder 30 minutes before.

Other Available Times Options… 

Copy Time - To copy a time, select the time you would like to copy and then click the Copy Time button. The availabilities will be copied and a dialog will open allowing you to make edits or to save your newly created availability.  (If your original time had a range of dates, you will have to update them in the new version.) 

Delete Time- To delete your time, simply select the time and click the Delete Time button.

Note: Inactive availabilities are highlighted in red in the Times Available grid.  That simply means that we are outside of that time period.  However, students can see the times you have set for the future and are able to set appointments for those times before they are active. 


Other Reasons to Set Availability?

If you would like to set availability for reasons other than Program Planning and Office Hours, we may be able to add that functionality.  Please contact Melissa Boog, Heather Holmes, or Sarah Timko-Jodlbauer with your request.
