From initial enquiry to re-enrolment, use Finalsite Apply’s modern suite of tools to create a more personalised and organised admissions workflow for admissions staff and families. Complete with private messaging, secure file sharing, recommendation requests, invoices, a task manager, checklists, and robust reporting, schools who use Apply save time and money.
Increase Enquiry Traffic with a Responsive Applicant Experience
Because, on average, more than 50% of website traffic comes from mobile devices, Finalsite Apply's applicant interface is responsive — meaning families can easily take the next step in the application process from any device.
Apply's applicant dashboard is also responsive, which allows families to submit invoice payments, view and send new messages, schedule tours, and complete any tasks needed at their convenience.
Stay Up-To-Date With A Robust Admin Dashboard
Responsive, organised and intuitive, Apply's Admin Dashboard gives admissions staff a quick overview of what's on their plate including:
- to-do items and tasks
- new messages
- new enquiries and applicants
- recent activity from co-workers and applicants
Divvy Up the Workload with Task Lists
Apply's organised tasks lists are the foundation for an improved workflow for your office. Assign work, check off what's been completed, and see where you can help out in a simple, streamlined and color-coordinated panel right on the admin dashboard.
Schedule Tours and Interviews Online
Simple scheduling of tours and interviews keeps your team and prospective families organised. The Tours and Interview Calendar lets you:
- Sync with iCal—great for teams on the go
- View your schedule at a glance with a color-coded key
And, since families can schedule their own tours, you'll reduce the time you and your staff spend on the phone.
Create a Digital Decision Notification
No more snail mail or expensive international shipping! FinalsiteApply gives applicants instant notification of their admissions decision and saves you thousands in mailing costs—not to mention all that time spent printing labels and stuffing envelopes.
Send Safe, Personalised or Bulk Messages
Private messaging with applicants, families, and your admissions staff increases efficiency in a secure space. The best part? There's a record of all communications with families and applicants that all admissions staff can see, reducing errors and eliminating duplication of effort.
Stay On Task With Organised Checklists
Checklists keep you and your school's applicants on task. The Application Checklist lets families see where they stand with an easy-to-follow list of what they've completed and what's left to do before their application package is ready for submission.
For admissions staff, a self-populated checklist in the Dashboard keeps important tasks organised.
Simplify Enrolment and Re-Enrolment
By taking the process paperless, Finalsite Apply streamlines the workflow of enroling new students and rolling over returning students from year to year. For parents, this means no more filling out paper enrolment forms or mailing in checks; for admissions staff, the paperless workflow reduces processing time, errors, and allows for a quick view of enrolment status.
Create Real-Time Reports and Review Analytics
Building and running reports of all kinds is greatly simplified with Apply's reporting and analytics features.
Admissions staff can:
- create custom reports for internal use
- build reports for external reporting
- monitor enrolment
- track trends with robust analytics
