New Features and Enhancements


Release Note

Disclaimer Statement in Digital Signature Emails

Updated the wording of the disclaimer statement in all digital signature emails that contain a link that does not require the user to log into the application with a managed account.

Limits for Rows in Merged Reports

Updated the following 16 reports under configuration management to include higher row limits:

  • Delivered Services

  • Delivered Services Part C

  • Evaluation Report

  • Evaluation Report Part C

  • Graduate Student Services Needing Approval

  • My Pending Approval Part C

  • Parental Consent

Auto-Acceptance Notification

Updated to exclude the soft-deleted documents when sending the auto-acceptance notifications.

Increased Verbosity of Daily Digest Emails for OSSE

Included the breakdown of import layouts with errors for tenants in the daily digest email sent to the email address configured in the controller to meet the OSSE requirements. This information is essentially the same as what each workspace’s digest email would contain individually.

Goal Names Visibility on User Interface (UI)

Improved the visibility of goal names during digital signature to accommodate longer lengths on the UI.

Disable Duplicate Service Record Validation

Added a new option, Disable Duplicate Service Record Validation, to service record forms to turn on or off the validation of duplicate service records.

Staff Lookup Fields

Improved the behavior of staff look-up fields so that users with location-wide access to staff can easily look-up staff at any location they have access to without needing to switch locations.

Student Search

Improved student search box on the home page so that the visibility of the documents icon aligns better with user’s ability to access the documents tab through other methods.

PowerSchool SIS Integration – IgnoreForIntegration Capability to Support Custom Fields

Added a new profile field, IgnoreForIntegration, which will force integration to skip locations that are not needed to integrate.
