  1. Spaces in last name

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

    • 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.

      • 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!

        • Special Characters in names

          Allow for special characters in names. Example: Téa. Váquéz, Garciá, Zöe, Eleña, etc.

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

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • Entity # Duplicates

                  Suggestion from Oshkosh Area School District: In addition to the Report Duplicates for WiseId's we hope to have a Report Duplicates for Entity #'s - we had 2 cases recently that had the wrong number & could not fix or report the errors.

                  • 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.

                    • Once a WISEid generated it should never be invalid

                      Districts should not need to delete or update a WISEid that is merged with other records. Both IDs should remain valid so that school staff are no longer concerned with getting lists of WISEids to change from DPI.

                      This would not eliminate all manual updates as splitting an improperly matched WISEid would still require at least one district to update its records. However the local_row_key could be used to assist in those scenarios.
