Message of the Day - Now with Colors!

We added support for a Message of the Day (or really Week, Month or Minute-and-a-Half) earlier in the year, covered in this post. But now you can have colors. Here's how they can be set up:

Welcome Utah!

Utah completes all the former MAPS states that have converted to MIS2000. As always, thanks to the Utah MEP and expecially Jeff Ojeda and Renee Medina. It won't be long before I'll have to go back to writing real blog entries.

Welcome Delaware!

And another! We had to get through both a change of system and a change of state director in Delaware, but we've arrived and they're fully connected to MSIX and rolling. Special thanks to Philip Keefer, Angela Horton, and Maria Mendoza for their patience and commitment through the transition. We still have a few more to go...

Welcome New Mexico!

OK, so this is the second of our MAPS states, joining Nevada now in full production and fully connected to MSIX. It has been a long haul (but even longer ones are in the works), but we've finally come out the other end. As always, many thanks to the New Mexico MEP and various folks throughout the state for their involvement on this, including Laura Henry, but especially Iggy Campos and Marty Jacobson who have been trooopers.

More Mass Enroll/Withdraw Features in Web App

We've been enhancing the web app to better support mass enroll and withdraw for the past year. The last blog post was here. Most recently we've added a switch for whether or not to use the New Grade column, a dropdown for New Enroll Type, and a place to enter New Residency Verification Date. It now looks like this:

Emails for File Uploads to Resources

I know some states really use the Resources section of the web app quite a lot and have dozens of folders, and I think others don't even know it exists. It's basically just a place for sharing random files like Excel and Word documents between MIS2000 users. We've blogged about it before here. And it looks like this:

New Searches in Desktop App

About a year ago we introduced the ability to restrict searches in the web app to students enrolled in a particular school year. I wrote a blog post about that here. I've recently added the same functionality to the new desktop app, which I think I'll start just calling the desktop app from now on. It's not that new anymore. I'll start calling the original one the old desktop app now. Many newer states have never even seen the old app.

Web COE Tweaks

We've got quite a few states now using the web app for primary COE entry instead of using the native app. So there have been tons of state-specific tweaks to how COEs look and operate in different states. A good example is the "proof of temporary" item in Alaska only shows if the qualifying work is actually marked "temporary". Here's what the COE looks like before marking temporary:

Export Code Tables to a CSV File

I blogged a few years ago about the code table editor I had just added to the Web App here. That has been refined and polished quite a bit since that time, but I haven't added a lot of new features. But I did recently add the ability to export whatever code table you're looking at to a CSV file with an inconspicuous little button in the lower right corner of the grid marked with yellow highlight below:

Welcome Nevada!

Many thanks, as always, to all the folks at the Nevada MEP, especially Kulwadee and Claudia. Nevada is the first state we've ever converted from the MAPS system, and everything went pretty smoothly. The import data was simple and clean. We did run into an issue with Nevada having been an MIS2000 state ten years ago, so there were some old MIS2000 IDs up on MSIX from that era, but with help from Sarah Storms and the rest of the MSIX team, we were able to successfully dance around that and get them certified and fully up and going on MSIX. If you run across anyone from the Nevada MEP team, be sure to welcome them aboard!
