Department filters are available on list pages, sandboxes, and various reports where applicable.

  1. Click on the Academics Tab
  2. Select Departments
  3. Open the left side filter panel to search for specific departments.
  4. By using the "Keyword" search (you must click the "Search" button" or press enter), Only departments matching the keyword(s) will be returned in the list.
  5. To limit the number of departments, use the Subject and/or Course filter.
  6. Use the "Active" drop-down to view departments that are active, inactive, or either.

    Astra Schedule clients will need to add Departments manually.
