How to Schedule a Follow-Up Reminder

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to use this feature?

This is a new feature to MAP-Works and it allows you to set meetings for advance. The Retention uses it to not forget to touch base with at-risk students.


In what form is the reminder sent to me?

An email is sent to your Racermail account. The email encourages you to log-in to MAP-Works to check on your Follow-Up Statuses on the date you set.


Does the reminder give me the student's name in the email?

No. The email is only a reminder to sign-in to MAP-Works. The steps below will walk you through how to create and check a Follow-Up Status.

Step 1

Log-in to MAP-Works. You can find the link in your myGate account under the Employee tab.
