Acadia 9.3: Simplifying and streamlining alert distribution

Acadia 9.3 release

Our goal with Acadia is to continuously improve the platform over time to make it easier to use and less susceptible to possible mistakes while using it.

In 9.3 we addressed a navigation issue within the alert distribution wizard. You’ll also notice more consistency across our wizards, process consolidation and updated language that should help alleviate confusion and improve your experience.


Focused Experience

The first thing you’ll notice when distributing alerts is a focused view. There’s nothing worse than losing your work due to a rogue click on the site navigation. To prevent mistakes that lead to rework, we have removed the system navigation during distribution.

Distribute Acknowledgement



Additionally, closing out of the distribution process now requires confirmation before any work is discarded.

More Consistent Document Picker

Searching and filtering documents is now consistent with our document creating and editing wizard, providing a more uniform experience across Acadia.

Document Browse Picker

To help ensure the document(s) you’re choosing are correct, we’ve added the option to open a document in a new tab by clicking the boxed arrow icon to the right of the document name and description.


Recipient Consolidation: Users

To minimize extra clicks, “recipients” and “recipient details” will be consolidated to one step.

New Recipients


Note: You will also have the choice to turn off the ability for your users to distribute to “everyone”. This can be toggled on and off from
Settings > Alerts > General > Distribution


Similar to the new interface for selecting documents, there will also be a consistent, new interface for selecting users.

New Recipient Details


Enhanced Message Screen

We've renamed the “Email Notification” step to “Message."

New Message Screen

  • Say goodbye to 'double greetings.' The message shown is the message that will be delivered. All text is now editable.
  • The documents being distributed are now listed, so you know exactly what is being sent out.


Email Distribution


One other detail you might notice in 9.3

Alert Settings now includes a separate option for Broadcasts, distinct from Acknowledgement, Quiz, and Evaluation alerts.
