Notation Categories are selected when users create updates or alerts for students in their network. Based on your review of the site and your campus’s use last year, you may want to update Notation Categories. 

To review your campus's use of notations, once you’ve logged into Beacon, select Reports.  Under that tab, select Notation.  You’ll be able to run reports of the Top 10 Categories, along with the Top 10 Members.  You’ll be able to filter by specific categories, as well as specific date ranges.




If notation categories do need to be updated, once you have logged into Beacon, select the Settings tab, then select Notation Categories under Configuration.  Use the arrows to move categories from Inactive to Active, or vice versa.  Please note there is a maximum of 10 categories.
