  1. 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…

  2. Duplicate request notification

    Notification about duplicate reports being approved or denied to requesting agency. As they would need to know if the change went through to correct their SIS information.

  3. WISEId Status Bar

    Suggestion-the WISEid status bar
    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?

  4. Ability to Separate Auto-matched Students

    Ability to separate students that automatically match but are different kids. Or for the system to look at more fields to match information before automatically grouping them under the same WISEid.

    We have students automatically matching to students from other districts due to their first name, last name, and date of birth matching. It is causing errors for both districts since they end up with the same WISEid imported back into the SIS.

    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.

  6. Comment Character Limit

    If Comments are limited to 250 characters, I wish it would not allow you to keep typing. It's hard to try to figure out how much you have to delete so it will fit. Thanks.

  7. Match Review

    The match review is cumbersome and time consuming. Madison has over 300 to review, it will take a long time to to do this.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. I suggest the WISEid system lists "Comments" chronologically, with the most recent comment, at the top of the list instead of the bottom.

    It is natural for our eyes to go to the top of the list looking for the most recent event. I feel that anywhere there is a list that includes dates, the newest item should be listed first.

  11. URGENT Training on WISEid Student Application Process & Expectations

    I was startled to find out about the impending change from the WSLS to WISEid system for student tracking. While I have heard whispers of info, finding out about the need to exit students this July and enter into a new process and system is concerning at this date and time. I would respectfully request that trainings, videos or conferences be made available to us who work within these systems every day. At a District level not only do I need to learn the student side of the application( I have worked w/ WISEstaff) I now need to learn, understand…

  12. 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.

  13. help buttons

    Can you put a help button (?) next to each button? It would help tremendously.

    Also, put the order that work is to be completed at the top - left (before person). Every time I enter this program, I am at a bit of a loss on what to do next, in what order.

  14. 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.

  15. Error List from Results screen is cumbersome.

    When looking at the errors returned from a file:

    (1) the count is a count of persons with errors, not the error count; maybe this is ok, but it wasn't what I expected

    (2) to view the errors I have to click on every single person which is very tedious if there are hundreds...

  17. Cumbersome process to add multiple person names

    The CSV upload allows only for one alternate name. As we are making this initial loads, we have several staff with multiple names. Our only options are to load multiple files to get all names or do some work by hand. We may decide to only enter the 2 names.

  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.

  19. Updating a person should be done by an active district and require confirmations from other active districts via inbox messaging

    Updating a person should be done by an active district and require confirmations from other active districts via inbox messaging.

    Active reporting districts should be able to update any information, but it should be held in limbo until all other active districts with conflicting information "Accept" these changes via a home screen message in an inbox within the application. - no calling unless to remind someone to go into the app and accept changes

    DPI then has ability to override, but no need to manage individual changes.
