  1. Email notification when a message/change request needs my attention

    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.

      • Download files of WISEids should provide Educator Entity/File Number for licensed persons

        To provide additional "Hard" matches for importing WISEid files into the school Districts HR or SIS systems, the Educator File Number should be provided on Persons that have them.

        This could help import data in a number of situations. a specific example is where a district has separate HR and SIS software packages that do not share a local id (Employee or Payroll Number) across them. When either system could generate a state report including Educators, the WISEid will need to be loaded into both systems. DPI is recommending that the HR system be the system of record for managing…

        • Updating a person should only be done by districts with a Local_Row_key Association

          Changing (updating or editing) a persons Name, DOB, and Gender would only be editable by users from districts that have established a relationship with that person.

          • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Allow District-to-District transfer of students

                      Districts could send/request students based on WISEid by flagging them for transfer and an accept/reject process. This would help avoid data errors and duplicate data entry.

                        • 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.

                                  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.

                                      • 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

                                        • 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…
