Please put the assignments in alphabetical order instead of by license code. It would be a lot easier to find "reading" than looking up the code (316).11 votes
We have modified the Assignment Code LIst so that Positions and Areas have seperate columns for both the code and names. So now you can sort by either codes or names by clicking the desired column header.
If there were TOTALS for FTE, Salary and Benefits, then I could check it against my source data and know instantly if I had a mistake in my entries before I lock and submit.15 votes
We have now added Total Agency Salary and Total Agency Fringe Benefits to the Staff List at bottom of the screen and in the download. There are now totals on all reports were totals makes sense. For example, we don’t have them on the Admin Salary Fringe Report because staff with multiple assignments can have multiple rows, therefore, repeating their contract info so providing a total there would not make sense.
Export audit result reports into excel or csv format. This would allow user to sort data quickly. (Especially by license expire date)8 votes
We now have CSV downloads of Audit Reports on the Audit Results page – click on the icon to the right of report name.
Add an option/button to the main staff list to be able to delete both the contract and all assignments for a staff person all at once. Currently, the only way to delete a staff person from the agency's staff list is to delete each assignment individually and then have to delete the contract for that person. This new option would allow you to delete a person from your staff list with one step but would issue a warning confirmation box first for example: "Are you sure you want to delete all assignments and contracts for WISEid, First Name Last Name removing them from your staff list?" .

We added red x to delete entire person from the Staff List. This deletes both contract and assignments.
The Manage Staff Data screen has a box on the right-hand side of the screen in the Copy Forward Files section. It says, "For the 2015 - 2016 school year...." And then there are references for selecting and downloading the 2014-2015 contract and assignment files.
I believe that all of these dates need to be updated.1 vote
Changed this last year so this is dynamically updated.
Companies that are contracted to provide staff for regular operational services like student transportation , food service and substitute teaching should be provided with a method to report staff data directly to DPI on behalf of their school district customers.5 votes
We have the ability now for a couple years. In WISEstaff under Work with Staff Data select the Enter Aggregate Staff FTE option.
When I go through and view the WISEstaff errors under the validate staff data tab and resolve an error it takes me the edit staff screen. It would be more efficient if the system could take me right to the next error to be resolved instead of going through all the different screens. I appreciate your time and consideration.26 votes
We add the “Go to Navigator” button on the Validate Staff Data page which will allow you to go between each validation issue target page using navigation arrows without having to return to main page each time.
After attending the Skyward Conference the past two days & listening to my cohorts, I would respectfully ask that consideration be given to extend the reporting deadline. Many people are relying on attending the WISEdata conference Nov. 12-13 and this severely interrupts our working abilities to submit in a timely manner. I myself have not even begun, as I am working on ISES reports. Any consideration would be appreciated. Thank you.27 votes
The Reporting Deadline for WISEstaff has been extended to 11/25/2015. More information will be posted to the WISEstaff welcome page within the application
It would be nice if the Local Person ID's would print out on the All Staff Report or you could print a list of just the ID's. Please consider adding this for next year. Thank you6 votes
We completed this last year.
For next year it would be nice to have a form that can be sent out to the staff with the %/Grade levels/ taught. Sometimes in small districts it can be quite a mixed bag.
Or an something that can be emailed to each staff member showing what last year's staff report says and ask them to revise.16 votes
We created the Staff Corrections Form that accomplishes this. It includes grades taught as well.
After this year's new system is finalized, it would be great to have a manual on the 1202 process with screen shots. Maybe one section for those who are entering data manually on the DPI site and another for those who are uploading files from their HR software.1 vote
There is a user guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kdI7vhekklMQIYWDQ6q2b2m2N75gHTvmmP__9thf-Xc/edit?usp=sharing . Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if this is not what you were suggesting

We have a Help Link for each step on the WISEstaff homepage in the Annual Staff Collection Checklist. It explains the process. We plan to add further functionality this summer to have integrated tools tips and help integrated in the site for everything.
Should be able to uncheck the "Is the salary final for this school term radio button instead of having to delete the contract1 vote
Radio Group was switched to a drop down list that allows for an empty value to be saved.
It should open to my working LEA to make it go faster1 vote
Working LEA now defaults to the persons currently selected LEA.
"Is this assignment being performed by a subcontracted individual?" Could this be a default No like the other three in the block?6 votes
I would like a report similar to previous years. It is easier to proof read than an excel spreadsheet.1 vote
2 Additional reports: Salary and FTE have been added to the system. These reports are very similar to the reports available from the PI-1202 Fall staff application. Are there other reports that you where looking for from the old system?
In the past we could print out our reports either to see where we were at or when we were finished a hard copy could be printed. It made a nice working document for the following year.1 vote
The all staff report is now available within the WISEstaff application. Would love to here about your thoughts on that report and ideas for other reports that would be usefull.
Can you please the education numbers with type. Bachelors = 4, Masters = 5, etc.? I need it.7 votes
You can see in the UI dropdown for Highest Degree now.
How are the changes to the 1202 going to be communicated to the staff that actually takes care of it?
The 1202 site on the DPI website still says the report will open in December 2014? If this is not accurate how will this be communicated?16 votes
We have updated the staff collection page with the correct timeline: http://lbstat.dpi.wi.gov/fallstaff
Please join the WISEdata Google+ community for news and updates: https://plus.google.com/communities/105431195558511570315
If it is true that the 1202 isn't going to be opened until Spring 2015 - this is horrible timing for most districts. Since the 1202 is completed by HR staff, the Spring is the busiest time with hiring new staff for the following school year. Why were we not consulted about this change?6 votes
The WISEstaff collection will return to the normal 1202 collection window for the 15-16 school year
- Don't see your idea?
