In response to requests from our user community, we’re pleased to announce the availability of a new tool within Fisdap Skills Tracker. Effective today, you now have the ability to require evals on shifts. If you have certain evaluation forms that you want your students to fill out on each shift, you can use this new setting to make sure they have completed those evaluations before the shift can be locked.

Any instructor with Edit program settings permission can turn this feature on. From the Skills Tracker Settings page (Account > Skills Tracker), click the Require filled-out evaluation(s) prior to shift lock checkbox.

From the Customize required evals link, you can choose specific evaluations for each shift type. For example, you can require a site evaluation AND a preceptor evaluation for field shifts, and only require the site eval for clinical shifts.

Once the setting is turned on, your students (of all certification levels) will not be able to lock their shifts until they complete the required evaluation(s).

Please note that the evaluations for each shift type can be tailored to your program.
