Transcript Report Builder
Version 5.2 includes the new Transcript Report Builder, which allows districts to customize the layout and content of their transcripts. Districts can create multiple transcript templates using a variety of widgets, which represent new and existing fields that can be added to transcripts, including:
- Academic Standing
- Counselor Signature
- Course History
- Credit Summary
- Free Text
- Guardian Information
- Rich Text
- Student Comments
- Student Information
- Student Photo
Each of these widgets provide basic configuration options, including content orientation, font, font family, font size, decoration, alignment, shading, and borders. Once a template has been saved, users will have the ability to run transcripts for selected students from the Transcript Wizard using any of the defined templates. The custom formats will be displayed when viewing transcripts from the Student Profile, as well as the Parent and Student Portals.
Alternate Course Request Support
With the release of version 5.2, the Course Request tab, available via the Parent and Student Portals, has been enhanced to support the entry of alternate course requests. Users can now select one or more alternate requests for each primary request when the corresponding access right has been enabled. In addition, users can print a complete list of all course requests and associated information, including alternate requests and comments.
Enhanced Immunization Reports
The State Immunization Reports have been enhanced to provide health administrators and nurses with detailed information related to student immunization compliance. The Waiver Report now includes immunization state code information. The Students with No Immunizations report provides users with a detailed status for each student immunization. Finally, the Immunization Dosage Report now presents the state code, student doses, and required doses for each student immunization. The new Display Only Students with Missing Doses option returns a list of only those students who have fewer student doses than required by the state. School information and student IDs have been added to all reports, and users can now launch the Student Health page directly from this report using the new View icon.
