How has your department/unit benefited from using Navigate?

What feature in Navigate do you utilize the most?

What would you tell other advisors who are thinking of using Navigate?
It's very convenient to have a lot of information all in the same platform.   It definitely helps in regards to communication.   In any academic support unit, I think one wants to make sure that every student has every opportunity to succeed.  This platform has allowed for more feedback from different sources so that we can get the most accurate information possible.  It is with this information that we can try to help students that may be struggling or have personal issues going on that may be affecting their academics.  It takes many people to facilitate student success, Navigate has now put us all in the same village.
