Sonia is packed with features to optimize your student placement program, from the transition of student data and records management to automation and workflow mapping.
Sonia Basics: Students
Create a Student
The Student Module
To work with Sonia, you’ll need to create Student records, either manually or by using the Student Importer.
This video shows how you can manually create a new Student and make the Student active.
It is even easier if your institute uses the Student importer to bring Students into Sonia directly from your Student Enrollment system.
Student information is stored in the ‘Student Module’ in the Sonia Client. In this module, you will be able to view student details, check information, placement details, as well as anything associated with the student.
In this video we are going to see where this information is located, as well as the difference between an active and an inactive student, and where we can find inactive students in the Sonia Client.
Search freely accessible databases, library catalogs, and research databases your organization has licensed – without leaving Citavi.
Save search queries you often use and avoid importing duplicates. Add references from Google Scholar, PubMed, and every other online research database with an export option.
Citavi saves a list of your imports. You can always check where, when, and with what search terms you performed a search and view the references you added.
