WISEID Separate Fields for Legal Name and Preferred Name
WiseID really needs to have a place for legal name/gender from a birth certificate and then preferred name/gender for a student. This needs to be 2 different fields. The change requests and comments are getting super confusing because not all districts are submitting data the same way.
We plan on changing the Change Request process later in the fall so that first name, middle name, birth date changes have the originating district verify their district-accepted documentation. Once the documentation is verified the Change Request will no longer need to go to review by other districts. This should resolve the Change Request-related concerns you have. Currently some vendors do have the ability to collect both legal name/gender AND preferred name. Then have an option in your district system to choose which will be sent to DPI in WISEid/WISEdata. Check with your vendor documentation or support to see if you have them already.
