  2. Spaces in last name

    WISEid student change request should not be generated when the difference is just spaces or hyphens in the name.

  4. WISEid Upload Complete Email Notification

    I would like to have an email notification automatically generated (or an option to check a box to receive it) after a WISEid upload completes. Often, especially during busy times, we are #15-20 in line. It would be nice to receive an email that the process finished so we know we can go back to it.

  5. Do not deny Parent Name Change Requests

    When a parent informs us of a name change, while sometimes documentation is provided, we do not require it, in order to update our SIS. We do however, take the necessary steps to ensure that a name is not duplicated, incorrect, or wrong. I can see the need for the match-review process with students (and legal documentation), but the denial/appeal process with a parent name seems redundant.

    under review  ·  Jeffery Post responded

    The DPI Customer Services Team has submitted a project request to the planning team for analysis.

  7. In messages/notifications, create a "flag" (OAS uses an asterisk) for repeated notifications.

    When the same notification keeps reappearing time after time, it would be nice to tag it so that time does not have to be wasted seeking answers to repeat info that was already submitted.

  8. Specify School as well as District with Contact Info in WISEid Search

    Hello:
    When do a search for students in WISEID, we can see our District and other Districts that the student has attended however it would be extremely helpful if, for the other Districts, it would provide a link to the actually school within the District that the student enrolled at. We know that we can look up different agencies and get the contact information for those Districts but it would be much more efficient if we could just click on the other District from the WISEID - Student Search and find the specific school within that District that the student…

  9. Fewer clicks on WiseID match review

    I have 102 potential matches to go through after uploading staff to get a WiseID. I would like to see the number of clicks reduced when going through the match process. We have to click "Next", "Accept", and then "Confirm" just to confirm that we are adding a new person or merging with an existing ID.

  11. Better Search

    When you go to search/edit and type in a student's name it would be great if the system would look for names that start with the letters typed in. For example, last name of Paepcke, if you type in the first name and the last name = Paep, a child with the last name of Bebo shows up. Sometimes I am unsure on how to spell the name but can guess, without the full name it is hard to search for students.

  13. Add associated district to Modifier in Person Change HIstory

    In the Person Change History for a student, would it be possible to list the district the Modifier is associated with? When tracking down who changed something it would be nice to be able to easily see the district who made the change.

    If you also have WISEdata Portal access we allow you to see the last two enrollments for a person in WISEid when you search for a person and expand the details for the results of a person. We also show the past 2 enrollments during the Match Review process to help determine if you have the correct person. Please let us know if the last two enrollments are enough for you in the comments. If you don’t have access to the WISEdata Portal please contact your district’s DSA to get access.

  15. Requests to Approve or Deny

    We just received an item that we are supposed to approve or deny. I don't understand how we could possibly make a decision on this. It is to approve or deny a last name change for a teacher who left our district in the summer of 2015. We have no way of knowing any information about her since she hasn't worked here for a year. Maybe there should be another choice to acknowledge this--like unknown? Thanks.

  16. Provide a student download for approved change requests

    The Student Downloaded by Local Person ID is a file that shows students who have now left the district . So is there a way to pull a file (or download a file) that will tell me all the students who have been requested by another district. I would prefer to have a file rather than looking at the approved through Change Request one by one

  17. need instructions on page

    Next steps. I think that we need more directions or information under each category. Example. I have uploaded my csv file. Then, I went to results and downloaded the new/comment filled csv file back from the State. I tried to clean things up and resubmit. I am now down to zero errors, but 4 potential match issues that I need help with. Instructions would help. Thanks.

  18. Develop better match criteria for students with two last names

    Students with two last names are frequently duplicated. Some districts might have used one or the other last name instead of both. Other districts might have last names in a different order. Another district might put a dash between two last names while another might use a space. Better matching criteria would help eliminate duplicates.

    Please work on a way to help identify students with two last names correctly in WISEid.

  20. WISEid Automatic Email Reminders

    It may be helpful to have WISEid send an automatic email to the user contact email address when there are changes (approvals & denials) so the School District contact person knows there is information waiting for them. I suggest providing the link right to the page the contact person needs to be at. Not all of us get onto this site immediately (especially in the midst of the beginning of the year) to take time to specifically log in and check this daily and within the seven days allotted for changes. An automatic email would ease this reporting. - Stephanie…
