When working with staff list, it would be nice to be able to click a button (go to next staff member) without having to back out15 votes
We have completed this. We now have a “Go To Navigator” in top right corner of the screen so you can browse the Staff LIst without returning to the main page between records."
Be able to filter by school on the WISEstaff Dashboards. We love the district wide view but would be possible to view by school as well.
THANKS! :)12 votes
This has been completed and will be deployed 3/31/21.
On the validate staff data screen, it would be nice if it could remember the last filter/sort used. After correcting an error, I validate in order to remove the error fixed. When I went to correct the next error, the filter/sort were gone.1 vote
Go to Navigator button now does this. It also remembers filters and sorts as you go through records one by one.
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.
Add and additional button that allows you to move from the end of entering an assignment directly to adding another new assignment for the same person11 votes
Added Additional Assignment button on the Assignment page to add a new assignment for the same person.
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.
A link to the codes on the main WISEstaff page so I can use as guide for degree level, teacher, subject, etc. Need directions or videos in a hand spot. Maybe a page link off of the main menu (left hand side)?2 votes
Link is now in many places in WISEstaff and on help pages.
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.
Create a Staff Data Dashboard with high level statistics and summaries with drill in ability to records. Data should compare select agencies to previous years and state averages.9 votes
We now have a WISEstaff Data Quality dashboard. We will continue to expand this in the future and improve drill ins.
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.
Districts would be able report rolled up FTE values by non-educator assignment codes for contracted staff.
Districts with both employed and contracted positions would report FTE separately for individual employees and rolled up for contractors. DPI would combine the two data sets to produce a total FTE for reports
Service providers like bus companies could provide to districts the total hours that are estimated for drivers on district routes for the year by school. Bus companies would need to determine how to split hours between schools / districts for shared routes.2 votes
Created Aggregrate Staff Reporting for the assignments we feel should be allowed this way. This includes bus drivers, food service and maintenance staff working for contracting companies.
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
Show the steps for uploading your assignment and contract data and what to do once that information has been validated.4 votes
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.
