Web Search Speed Improvements

MIS2000 has all sorts of built-in measurements that it keeps track of, things like which features are being used and which are not, how long uploads take, etc. One of the things I look at every month is how long web searches take. I've never been completely happy with our web searches. In some states they're almost instantaneous, but in others, a search can take several seconds, depending on circumstances. Last winter I put quite a bit of effort into optimizing the web searches and was able to get a considerable speed up across the board for all states and all student searches. I didn't work on COE searches at that time.

Enrolled Students filter in Web Search

One of the earliest notions we built into the MIS2000 Web Search is "Active Only", meaning the search would be restricted to "active" students only. And then we support each state in their own definition of what "active" means. That's all covered in this blog post.

Editing Code Tables in the Web App

I'm pretty excited about this new piece of functionality. I haven't been a big fan of our code table editor in MIS2000 for a long time, and I wrote it! I decided all of our code table editing really needs to be done through the web app, so that's what I've done. Now any MIS2000 administrator can visit the new Codes menu item and edit pretty much any code table. It looks like this:

Hideable sections on the web COE

There are just a few states using the web COE at this point, but I wanted to show one of the nifty new things we've done with it. In Arizona, they wanted a to have a pretty big chunk of form in their COE that isn't anything like what's on the national COE, and it would only need to be filled out if the worker sought work and had a history of moves (generally question 4b on a COE). Otherwise, they just want to collect a comment. So the comment section would look like this:
