New principal to Wisconsin. Would someone give me step by step instructions for creating Wise Ids for new students in my building please?1 vote
Please check the WISEid Help page on the DPI web site. Here you will find a user guide, quick start guides and videos explaining the WISEid process. Simply click the Help icon in the green tool bar at the top of the WISEid application, or visit this link: https://dpi.wi.gov/wisedata/help/wiseid. In addition, the 12 CESA’s will be holding WISEdata trainings soon that will cover this and other topics. To view the calendar of WISE-related events click here— https://dpi.wi.gov/wisedata/events/upcoming.
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!4 votes
This was fixed in the last year.
Messages and Change Requests. Make the school districts involved a link to their contact information from the request screen.5 votes
We now have this in place on the Message and Change Request page and also other places in the application where the Agency Name is listed.
When a message/change request comes to my agency, I would love an email notification. Often times the seven days has come and gone before I even have a chance to see it.37 votes
We have completed this finally. There are a few rough edges we are fixing in the next month or so, but the system is up and running. You can subscribe to emails from the WISEid/WISEstaff Admin Menu \ Agency Notifications page. Please suggest new ideas if there is any activity we currently don’t monitor that you want to get notifications for.
Please allow the ability to switch back and forth between the WISEid application and the WISEdata portal.4 votes
Now when you click the Exit button you have option to “Go to DPI Secure Home” where you can easily go to any of the DPI Applications you have access to including WISEdata Portal.
When a staff member changes their last name, it would be nice to have an easy way to change it in WISE Staff.8 votes
We now have an Edit button in WISEstaff Staff Edit page that takes you directly to the person to make edits to name and demographics.
On the Change Request screen and the WISEid Edit Screen, indicate if it is for a staff or student. Spent several minutes trying to locate the person in our SIS only to find out they were a staff member. Not everyone deals with both student and staff.4 votes
We added filters on the Message and Change Request for Staff vs Students now so you can focus on just those. On the WISEid Edit Screen we have the Local Person ID section which shows for agencies if its staff or student. We also include that info when you search for a person now in the results.
In Last Enrollment Information, it was helpful to have the movement of the student all the years in school? Right now you can only see the Last Enrollment Information. It helps me as a Registrar, especially when the parents don't tell you all the schools the students have attended and trying to get records. It helps at the High School level with suspicious expulsions as well. The movements tell you things and seeing them is helpful.2 votes
We have had this for about a year. To see in WISEid you must also be set up in WISEdata Collections Portal with access. If you have then the enrollments are visible in the Search Results and Match Review if you expand the details for a person there is a section Enrollments that shows last 2 enrollments for that person.
I would like to see an enhancement to the WISEid for Requesting Agency and Dependent Agency to be listed alphabetically rather than by LEA #. Most users do not know (or care) what another agency LEA # is, they want to find the agency in a quick and fast manner, hence alphabetically.
This has been fixed so the drop downs are sorted alphabetically.
If a student is already on the change request list, don't add another request. Match on WiseId4 votes
Last year we changed the system if there is a pending change request and a new upload creates the same Change Request no new change request is created.
For WISEid "Contacts" we should probably be able to select a Primary/Secondary and Generics for each area... Student/Staff. Right now, there is no way to determine what group a contact works with. If not fixed, this will be very confusing when trying to reach someone. Thanks!1 vote
In today’s release of WISEid (9/22/16) you now have the ability to mark contacts for Student records, staff records or both.
A filter is now available to filter on Staff vs Students.
It would be helpful to know what data fields are missing when getting this error message upon uploading a file to WISEid: Unexpected Data in File Detected. Please Verify that the File Has Complete Rows of Data Before Attempting to Re-Submit.1 vote
We now give a list of missing fields.
Birth certificates do not always give the city of birth. Many birth certificates only list county. Requiring this information means creating additional records be kept because the annotated birth certificate should be what is on the birth certificate, not what you verbally ask a parent.1 vote
The birth city is optional already.
I am not sure who this should go to - so please route. I think that the report submission went so much better this year! When everything is 100% the way it should be, it will be very easy to use. I also liked being able to print out the report for my files. Thank you for the hard work.1 vote
Suggestion sent in by River Valley School District:
When creating a new WISEid, it would be helpful for the WISEid # to display after all information is entered and saved. Currently, I have to re-search for the person to get the ID#. (Unless I'm missing a step somewhere) Thanks for considering an update.3 votes
We added the WISEid to the top of the Edit Person page awhile back. So now at end of completion you return to Edit Person the WiSEid is showing before the persons name.
Please add the ability to update/add Entity ID's that are missing. Currently the only way to fix for a few is to upload another person file which is a lot of work for only a few missing records. Thanks.7 votes
We have ability now to request Entity ID changes in the WISEid and WISEstaff tabs one person at a time. We also have ability to search ELO for the correct person.
It is probably on here somewhere but could you add a link to the WI DPI WISEdata discussion community on Google? Maybe under the help tab? I had trouble finding it this afternoon.1 vote
I implemented. If you click help and then the application the Google Community will be on the list of help options.
Under Results, the Error and Match buttons do not look like buttons, but the little letter icon to the far left does. The buttons should be more consistent.
- comment from Waunakee during helpdesk call4 votes
We made Errors, POtential Matches, and Download all same and more bold to indicate they are clickable.
In the WISEid Quick Reference, it shows this URL: https://uaapps.dpi.wi.gov/secure/
Can you put the current URL in that documentation? Thanks!1 vote
