EAB: Navigate - Step by Step Getting Started with Navigate as an advisor

Task: This article was created to provide an easy step by step process for advisors to start using the application in 4 easy steps.


1.  Sync Navigate with Outlook (you only need to do this once)
Syncing your Outlook Calendar with Navigate allows the advisor to ensure their availability is accurate within Navigate.  Advisors that schedule meetings and other commitments in Outlook this will allow those meeting to sync over to Navigate as “Busy” and prevents students to schedule appointments during these times.  This prevents accidental double bookings.

2.  Set up advising availability
Advisors must set their availability before students can schedule appointments.  Student appointments can only be scheduled during times defined by the Advisor.  The system prevents students from scheduling when they are to be in class.
