Navigate Configurations

Care Units

Care Units are a way to compartmentalize different units who provide support services in Navigate. By doing this, we are able to configure Navigate differently for those units to accommodate their needs. For instance, Care Units can provide different student services, at different locations, by different staff members, as well as create workflows to notify certain staff within that unit. The following Care Units have been configured.

Notes can be added to the student record to include other useful information about the student. When creating a note, the Faculty or Staff is required to select a Note Reason. The following Note Reasons were configured in Navigate: 

Student Categories
