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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
A filter is now available to filter on Staff vs Students.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

We made Errors, POtential Matches, and Download all same and more bold to indicate they are clickable.
I am assuming the file layouts posted last week are for the export files from our HR system. Can you also post on the website the file layout for the result file of WISEids we will be able to download?2 votes
All WiSEid and WISEstaff file layouts are posted on this page https://dpi.wi.gov/wisedata/vendors/filelayout-templates
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
How are the staff IDs going to work between districts that share staff - such as substitute teachers and coaches? Will there be a database where we can look up these numbers? This will be a nightmare otherwise.7 votes
WISEid is the database where people look up are perfomed
Why are the staff IDs changing? Why would we need to use a new number instead of the license number of entity number already in existence? Our Skyward systems already have this information and if it is encouraged that we upload from Skyward - there is no spot for some type of a new Staff ID? This would require manual input for every employee!5 votes
You will not need to hand enter WISEid’s into your local system. The process will work much like WSLS. You will first generate a file out of your local system. Next you will upload this file to the WISEid application and wait for it to process. Finally you will retrieve a result file that you import into your local system that will populate the WISEid.
Skyward has assured DPI that the have a field ready to store the WISEid that is separate from the Entity number.
Both number are necessary due to differing requirement for persons to that need to be licensed and which persons are reported in the Staff collection.
My staff person says their ssn is incorrect. It was ****and it should be ****. Can you help me with this?0 votes
The WISEid for staff eliminates the need for DPI to use Social Security Numbers for staff reporting. No correction or edit will be required.
- Don't see your idea?
