Navigate: Staff Home Overview

An overview of the information available in the Staff Home page of Navigate.

The Staff Home page is the default landing page when opening Navigate.  It allows you to view key tools that enable you to take action on student success-related tasks.

If you would prefer to have another page load initially when you are opening Navigate, please see Navigate: Setting your user settings

Make sure that Staff Home is selected. If you are also a UWL Instructor, you will be able to switch to your Professor Home (Navigate: Professor Home) here as well.

Some of the information you are able to see in Navigate is based on your role within the platform. So, you may not have all of the tabs/menus listed below.  Navigate gives users easy access to a lot of valuable information.

Students Tab

Students assigned to you as their advisor will appear here.

You can further sort your assigned students from 3 menus above the roster of student names

List Type: List all assigned students, or students on certain Navigate Lists (Navigate: Using Student Lists)

Term: Select the term for which students you wish to look for. Navigate will default to the current term.

Relationship Type: If you have various roles on campus, you may have alternate relationship types within this menu.

From this grid, you can take many different actions on these students, depending on your user permissions. These actions could include sending messages, creating appointment summary reports, scheduling appointments, adding a student to a student list, or exporting a list of included students.
