For Advisors

Overview

Leveraging the power of the Salesforce platform, Fordham Hub for Advisors is an advising platform that enables students to connect with a network of advisors, their “Success Team.” It provides the tools and data for advisors to support the advising process for deeper student engagement and success. 

Fordham academic advisors, class deans, and academic support staff will access the Advising Application. The Fordham Hub can be found on the fordham.edu MyPages \ Advisors, or the MyApps page. Click on The Fordham Hub.

The Fordham Hub top navigation bar

  1. Click the App Launcher (waffle icon) in the top-left corner of the screen to access other Apps or the All Tabs list. The app name is now displayed on the left side of the navigation bar. Your App should default to Student Success Hub. If not, please select this app.
  2. Home Page and Tabs dropdown  - Quick access to common objects and tasks. For example, Home Page includes quick access to your advisees as well as visibility into tasks and events for the day.
  3. Global Search across all objects or select the down arrow image to search a specific type (such as advisee cases).
  4. Profile Icon - Click on this icon and then click your name for access to update your profile picture and your ‘About Me’ for the students to see.
  5. Tabs - When you click on a Case Number in My Advisees, it will open in a new tab. From the tab caret, you will be able to:
    1. Refresh tab - if any new information is added while you have it open, you can refresh it to see it updated
    2. Pin tab - will pin a tab to the navigation bar where it is always available.
      1. Pinned tabs take up less space by becoming just an icon. Note:  it is best practice to pin the tab you will use most frequently
    3. Close tab - can be used to remove the tab from the navigation bar. The ‘x’ next to the tab caret will also close the tab.
  6. Sub-Tab - When you are in an Advisee Case Record, there will automatically be a sub-tab for the Advisee Case Record and the Contact Record for your student.
    1. Note that a Case Record is a composite of all of the Advising related information that is available for a student. The Contact Record provides largely the biographical information for the student
