Guest Post: Exploring the Qmlativ Business Suite R.J. Gravel, Ed. D by R.J. Gravel, Ed. D R.J. Gravel, Ed. D Asst Supt for Business Services - Glenbrook HSD 225, IL Read time: Editor's note: Dr. Gravel is a longtime friend of Skyward and a shining example of the "new guard" school business leader. Shortly after attending iCon 2017, he got his hands on a sandbox database for our Qmlativ platform and embarked on a mission to document his findings on Twitter. He was kind enough to sign off on our repurposing of his tweets for the benefit of the Skyward family. #DiscoveringQ We can finally create a one-stop destination for staff resources in the new Employee Access with External Links! @Skyward_Inc #DiscoveringQ pic.twitter.com/06VZ2upMhA — R.J.
