20A new, new website!
Hey everyone in Tandem schedule-land. We’ve recently updated our site with more information about what Tandem does, along with some case studies of some of our current Tandem users. We’ve simplified the signup process for both school administrators, and for parents and students looking for their school’s Tandem schedule.
We hope this makes it easier to learn more about what Tandem does, and easier for our current and future users to sign in from our website.
Enjoy the Spring!
We hope you enjoy our new, responsive website. We’ve been working on our design to automatically format the size based on the devise that you are using: a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. So, whatever device you’re reading this on, it should look great! And, if it doesn’t… please let us know 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, we’re happy to announce that we’ve acquired the www.tandem.co url, which for the time being, with re-direct to www.tandemcal.com. But, over time, we will be transitioning to the www.tandem.co website, because… well, basically, it’s just better. What’s the name of our app? Tandem! And now, what is the name of our website? Tandem.co! Hooray for shorter urls!
We wish everyone out there in school-land a Merry (upcoming) Christmas!
Happy scheduling with Tandem!
1How To: Add Menu
At Tandem, we want your organization to have one online school calendar for ALL events. To accomplish this goal, there is a little known feature of the Tandem calendar that allows you to post your organization’s menu to your favorite online school calendar. To do this, follow these simple instructions:
1. Select the Menu Tab
2. Select “Add” from Menu view.
3. Enter the necessary information. If you do not have any menu types yet, enter them now.
Now, your menu is available and ready to be enjoyed!
The Tandem Calendar is a very powerful tool for an organization of any size. That is why we are not surprised to see the recent interest from colleges and universities in the Tandem event calendar. We are glad to see that Salem State, University of Washington, University of Alabama, and Ohio Northern University are all now using their Tandem calendar. Here are just a few reasons community colleges and universities are using Tandem:
Community Colleges: Needing a way to rent unused facilities to community groups, community colleges often benefit from the ability to place ALL school events in one place online. With this ability, community colleges can rent facilities with confidence knowing that the facility is not being used by any other group at that time. Tandem simplifies the process further by allowing community groups to pay online using a credit card.
Universities: With a large amount of events occurring in just each department, universities need an easy way to communicate events across all departments. With the Tandem calendar, we often see music or athletic departments benefit the most from its use. These departments benefit greatly from the ability to submit internal and external event requests, create customizable approval systems, and the ability to make certain events private.
10Darin’s Last Day
There was a bittersweet moment at the office this past month as Darin Hanson had his last day as part of the Tandem Team. While we congratulate Darin on his new position elsewhere, it is difficult to see him go. He has been a key member of the support team here at Intand for the past 3 years, and his presence will surely be missed. We wish him the best of luck at his new position and hope he can find time to visit the office on Pizza Thursdays.
For reference, you can still contact us at email@example.com as we are still dedicated to providing excellent customer service. If Darin was your main contact here at Intand, you will now be provided excellent customer support by our newest team member, Mitsu Kubo. If you have not had a chance to talk to him, feel free to call and introduce yourself. He is a friendly guy. You can email him at Mitsu.Kubo@intand.com.
What does the name “Intand” mean? How was the company started?
These and other questions are answered in an interview with Bryan Otis, CEO and Co-founder of Intand. During this interview, Bryan goes in detail about the formation of Intand and its origins at Bellevue Christian School. You can find the entire interview on EdTech Digest.

REDMOND, WA, July 28, 2009 — Single sign-on became a reality when Lake Washington School District (LWSD) announced the first implementation of Microsoft code name “Geneva” technology in a K-12 environment. LWSD is located between Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, to the east of Seattle, and serves over 23,700 students. The goal of the project is to simplify student, teacher and parent access to school district applications by enabling single sign-on and role based authorization.
