When viewing the Registrar Reconciliation report, a "bulk reconcile with Banner" option (perhaps with an intermediate "here's all the changes that would be performed" list, if doing so would be practical) would be great.
For major room/time schedule changes, I can definitely see why the status quo of requiring verification of each field before updating the IPA entry would be beneficial, but (for example) reconciling dozens of CHE 2A section capacities in IPA once a change is made in Banner can be time consuming.
Thank you all for your feedback. Given the demand for this feature, I've added it to our short-term work queue.
When support staff are entering preferences for the course, when they click on the "Add Preference..." button the course list seems to be out of order. For speed of sorting, it would be helpful if the courses were listed in order (CHE 002B - B, CHE 002B -C, etc).
Thanks Bradley, I'll see if we can't get it fixed in the next few days.
Hi. We need a better way to view support call responses, both for the staff support and the instructors. I want instructors to review applications (support call responses) and give me their preferences for the course. This process is currently very cumbersome. They must open the instructor support call. And then go into the TA &Reader section and view there course under support assignments. They must memorize the list of students interested in their course and then switch views to read their comments individually. Then go back into the support call and enter their preferences.
We really need to be able to see all of the applicants and their responses per class.
Ideally, the instructor would see their class, open the applicants for their class, review the application information, and indicate their preference all in one view.
Is it possible to "lock" the options in the left margin as well as the header area on the Courses and both Assign Instructors screens (by course, by instructor)? This would allow you to switch screens or years, when you are in the middle or at the bottom of a screen without having to scroll all the way up first.
I've fixed the issue with the print button not working. It should print the pages just fine.
However, the pages are not well-formatted for printing. Do you just need the Summary tab printed, or is Schedule Costs and/or Funds important?
As Chemistry has sent out a teaching call through IPA, one of the issues we've run into is that some faculty aren't properly going through the "Submit" button -> "Confirm" flow. We've had a couple just hit submit and close the window, and a couple others just put their preferences in and close the window.
It's not a ton of people -- and even in a big department it's no problem to follow up with them in person -- but I figured it was worth mentioning, if a solution (maybe more visual interest in the existing submission flow, or an on-close dialog?) could be found that didn't disrupt the experience of everyone who was managing to use it correctly.
Thanks, have a good one!
Sorry if I put this one in already. I'm working on my Assignments page, by instructor. I would like the ability to add a course from this page. So for example, an instructor listed a PhD course in fall, but this year we need to move it to winter. I have to go out of the Assignments page and go back to the Courses page to add the course, then back to the Assignments page to add the instructor. This happens to me a lot, as we have to move our courses around quite a bit from year to year.
Can you fix the workload summary report so that it lists the quarters in date order; Fall, Winter Spring. Right now, I'm looking at the CS 19-20 Summary, it shows Fall 2019, then Spring 2019, and then Winter 2019. If someone isn't paying attention close enough, they may get the Winter and Spring assignments confused.
Thanks for letting us know!
I just pushed a fix, and the issue should now be resolved.
Numbers in parenthesis after the instructor name in the Assign Instructors:Course view, within the drop down list labeled ‘Asign…’, I thought were there to show the priority ranking that the instructor noted in their teaching preferences. I’m finding this number doesn’t match up most of the time.
Example: Impersonate Matthew Franklin.Fall preferences show ECS20 ranked 2. Assign Instructors:Course view page shows (3) after Franklin’s name.Winter preferences show ECS20 ranked 3. Assign Instructors:Course view page shows (4)
