Handshake offers you the ability to send notes from your email into the system so you can keep track of your student notes no matter where they are documented.
To send a note from your email into Handshake you will need to:
- Click your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
- Select User Settings from the drop down menu
- On the left of your screen you will see a list of institution settings tabs. Select Create Notes from Email
- Copy the email address that is listed and add it to your contacts in your email
Example of an email address: notes+wPofGwlppssqJscoMaRcp2dQszks0vnsXXEOtP5tgVyUi0Vi2ZjtMQ@mail.joinhandshake.co.uk
Create a new email with the student information you would like the note to contain, and send the email to the address that you have added or copied from your User Settings.
Quoted text and signatures will not be included in the note. This includes text from forwarded emails. If you would like to include this text, you will need to send the text in a new email.
Repeat steps one through three to view the notes that you have sent to Handshake.
View the note and click the drop down to search for and select a student to apply the note to.
