  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Specify School as well as District with Contact Info in WISEid Search

    Hello:
    When do a search for students in WISEID, we can see our District and other Districts that the student has attended however it would be extremely helpful if, for the other Districts, it would provide a link to the actually school within the District that the student enrolled at. We know that we can look up different agencies and get the contact information for those Districts but it would be much more efficient if we could just click on the other District from the WISEID - Student Search and find the specific school within that District that the student…

    If you also have WISEdata Portal access we allow you to see the last two enrollments for a person in WISEid when you search for a person and expand the details for the results of a person. We also show the past 2 enrollments during the Match Review process to help determine if you have the correct person. Please let us know if the last two enrollments are enough for you in the comments. If you don’t have access to the WISEdata Portal please contact your district’s DSA to get access.

  9. 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...

  11. 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.

  12. Fewer clicks on WiseID match review

    I have 102 potential matches to go through after uploading staff to get a WiseID. I would like to see the number of clicks reduced when going through the match process. We have to click "Next", "Accept", and then "Confirm" just to confirm that we are adding a new person or merging with an existing ID.

  13. WISEid Upload Complete Email Notification

    I would like to have an email notification automatically generated (or an option to check a box to receive it) after a WISEid upload completes. Often, especially during busy times, we are #15-20 in line. It would be nice to receive an email that the process finished so we know we can go back to it.

  14. 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.

  15. Cumbersome process to add multiple person names

    The CSV upload allows only for one alternate name. As we are making this initial loads, we have several staff with multiple names. Our only options are to load multiple files to get all names or do some work by hand. We may decide to only enter the 2 names.

  17. In messages/notifications, create a "flag" (OAS uses an asterisk) for repeated notifications.

    When the same notification keeps reappearing time after time, it would be nice to tag it so that time does not have to be wasted seeking answers to repeat info that was already submitted.

  18. Students with 2 different items to approve/deny. Separate WISEid alert for each specific "item" for approval/denial.

    I often receive WISEid alerts for a single student that have two items in a single alert. Example: One line item is a name difference; Another line item is a race/ethnicity change.

    I would like the ability to approve or deny a single line item.

    The issue is that the District may need to Approve one of the line items and Deny the other line item. This option is not available; a District can either Approve ALL line items or Deny All line items.

  19. 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

  20. Additional filter to FTE Summary Report

    Add additional filter, by school, to FTE Summary Report. This data is used in District for several reports.
