Graduation groups are a way for you to define different sets of graduates within one First Destination Survey. These graduation groups are completely customisable by your institution, and will influence the reminder email campaigns that are set on your First Destination Survey.
For more information on sending reminder emails for graduation groups, refer to Send Custom Invitation and Reminder Emails to Each Graduation Group.
To create a First Destination survey in Handshake, refer to Create a New First Destination Survey.
There are different ways to name graduation groups in Handshake. We recommend connecting with your institution's career services team and identifying the best way to identify the groups at your institution.
Note: graduation groups must be different from one another, and you can create as many graduation groups as needed!
Format Suggestions for graduation groups:
- Month, year (May 2023, December 2023)
- Month, year, course (May 2023 - Engineering, May 2023 - Business, May 2023 - Nursing)
- Month, year, level of study (May 2023 - Undergraduate, May 2023 - Graduate)
To view students associated within a particular graduation group, click the Students & Stats tab on the First Destination Survey overview page, then click on the desired graduation group.
Students are listed below the Timeline Stats section, on the right side of the page.
If you need to move a student to another Graduation group within the same First Destination group, you can do so! Add a check to the left of the students name/s you'd like to move, then click More in the upper-right corner of the header bar. From the dropdown, click Move between Grad Groups.
Within the popup, select the graduation group from the dropdown, then click the blue button Move Recipients.
