  1. 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.

    • Students with 2 different items to approve/deny. Separate WISEid alert for each specific "item" for approval/denial.

      I often receive WISEid alerts for a single student that have two items in a single alert. Example: One line item is a name difference; Another line item is a race/ethnicity change.

      I would like the ability to approve or deny a single line item.

      The issue is that the District may need to Approve one of the line items and Deny the other line item. This option is not available; a District can either Approve ALL line items or Deny All line items.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Name Change for Case Only

            Can you eliminate name change requests when the only difference is a change in case? We're asked to approve a difference between an "old value" of SMITH and a "new value" of Smith. Unless case is important, it would be nice not to see those!

                • 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.

                        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…

                          • Search by either last or first name and birthdate

                            I used to find it helpful to search a student by their first name and birthdate only to make sure I am looking at all possibilities for a match. For example. if a student has two last names and I don't enter them in the right order. Or if a parent enrolls their student with a non-legal last name. We just had our Human Resources person discover that she requested new WISEids for young staff members because she didn't know their former last names. At least if you have a match on first name and birthdate, you could check further…

                              • 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.

                                      Would it be possible to make the WISEId status bar larger and appear more in the middle of the page to make it more noticeable?

                                      • 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.

                                        • Entry of information

                                          It would be great if no one was able to add punctuation within names.
                                          Example: St. Louis
                                          middle initial - M.
                                          If entry was uniform there wouldn't be so many duplicates.
                                          thanks
