  1. 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.

    • 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?

      • Add associated district to Modifier in Person Change HIstory

        In the Person Change History for a student, would it be possible to list the district the Modifier is associated with? When tracking down who changed something it would be nice to be able to easily see the district who made the change.

        • 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

            • 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.

                  • Last Enrollment Information History

                    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.

                      under review  ·  Jeffery Post responded

                      Thank you for the feedback. We at DPI understand the need to track enrollment. You are able to find enrollment history using the WISEdash for Districts tool. (Login to WISEdash for Districts is through Secure Home https://apps2.dpi.wi.gov/secure/home). The WISEdash for Districts tool now provides current enrollment information sent to WISEdata via your SIS, but be aware, however, some districts are still working to get 2016-17 enrollments reported through the WISEdata system.

                      DPI is still analyzing if and what enrollment information is appropriate to display within the WISEid application.

                      Hope this helps!

                    • Staff and Student Indicators on Screens

                      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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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

                            • 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.

                              • 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…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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...
