How-To Primer for Colleague Process Handler

Many schools may already use the powerful Process Handler utility in Colleague to set up procedures to run on particular days and times. If you school does not utilize this tool, or would like to utilize it even more effectively, or would just like a refresher with some tips, this session is for you. Also to be included is how Cedarville University calls a custom piece from within the Process Handler to allow generation of PDF output files in the helpful tool.
