Outreach History is located at the bottom of the student profile. It contains all of the detail you provide each time you complete a Log Outreach submission. 

Outreach entries are listed with the advisor’s name, date, outreach type, and reason(s) for outreach visible. To view additional context for an outreach attempt:

  1. Click the gray arrow to the left of the name of the communication you’d like to examine further.
  2. The content will expand to show all of the details entered in the Log Outreach entry. If email was the medium and sent via the Inspire application, then there will also be an option to View Email Content.
  3. Click View Email Content to see the text of the email.

Export Student List

For institutions who conduct outreach in other systems, advisors have the ability to export a student list which will provide information such as student name, student email, GPA and outreach history. To do so, navigate to the Dashboard and select the Export Student List button located below the filter options. Export a CSV or TSV file directly to your computer.
