How has your department/unit benefited from using Navigate?
The SAASS Department benefits greatly from Navigate! Our students have access to individual calendars where they can see upcoming tutoring and advising appointments, and our counselors have the capability to help the students with requesting those appointments and run additional reports to gather information. Navigate has been extremely useful for our department, and I love all that this platform has to offer!

What feature in Navigate do you utilize the most?
Definitely the Reporting feature!

What would you tell other advisors who are thinking of using Navigate?
YES! Do it! Navigate has been so helpful for both our students and counselors! It is great to have a platform with so many available features, but it is even better that Navigate is so user-friendly!
