The process for scheduling candidate visits has traditionally been labor-intensive, and done by paper and pencil. The admissions staff would talk with school staff to check availability, consult the school calendar, and then use that information to identify dates, times, and potential participants for candidate visits.
Candidates would call the school, compare calendars with the admissions staff, and then together they would set a visit schedule.
The goals of this project were to improve the candidate visit scheduling experience for admissions staff, visit participants, and candidates. Specifically, we wanted to bring the identification of potential visit date/times into our school calendar, to allow candidates to self-schedule visits, and to provide a powerful visit builder for admissions staff.
