6.80.0 - 6/3/2022

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes an issue where first week attendance alerts are not sending messages to students.

Enhancements

Academic Planning Enhancements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes an issue where logged messages would sometimes flicker when scrolling or viewing messages on a student's messages tab depending on the zoom ratio set on some web browsers.
  • Fixes an issue where scheduled messages have extra spacing or extra bullet points when viewing emails outside of Aviso (the previous release fixed the display of these messages within Aviso).

6.78.0 - 5/13/2022

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes an issue where extra bullet points and extra spacing display on scheduled messages.

  • Fixes an issue where a reply sent to a student would go to the student's institutional email, even if the original message was sent to the student’s personal email. With this fix, message replies will always "send to" the same email address(es) that the initial message originally sent to. For example:

      • If an email message was originally sent to a student's institutional email address, then replies will also send to the students institutional email address.

      • If an email message was originally sent to the student's personal email address, then replies will send to the student's personal email address as well.  

      • If an email message was originally sent to both the student's institutional email address and their personal email address, replies will also be sent to both the institutional and personal email address. It does not matter where and which email address the student replied from.

  • Fixes an issue where searching for mutually exclusive tags to expire previously assigned tags via the automated tag filter did not display all available tags properly in the dropdown. In addition, adds help text in Tag Administration under the "Mutually Exclusive Tags" dropdown selection explaining that "These tags will replace and expire the current tag based on the Automated Tag Filter".

Enhancements

Messaging Enhancements - Message Logging

Message Logging is a long awaited feature allowing staff members to save messages directly to the student profile. Click here for more information about how message logging is used.

To summarize, Message Logging allows staff and faculty users to associate both internal and external email messages with a student profile. When messages are chosen to "Log", these messages display on the student's Activity Feed and Messages tabs.

  • Internal messages are messages created within Aviso Engage via the Aviso Messaging Interface, either by a student or a staff member.
  • External messages are messages that are sent from an external email client inbox outside of Aviso messaging. Currently, only institutions using G Suite Gmail messaging as their institutional email are supported for external message logging in Aviso.
  • For more information about Message Logging configuration in Aviso Administration, click here.

NOTE: Gmail (external) message logging integration is an add-on feature that requires setup by Aviso staff along with the institution's Google Workspace Administrator before being enabled in Aviso Administration.

  • Once enabled, each user will add a Chrome browser extension and configure their User Settings.
  • To add Gmail Message Logging to your institution's Aviso Enterprise product suite, or for more information, please open a support ticket or reach out to your client success representative.

6.69.0 - 2/25/2022

Enhancements

Limited Profile View and Full Profile View

This feature provides the ability to grant specific "limited view" permissions to staff users while viewing students who are outside of their caseload.

In order to accommodate the limited view:

  1. "Search outside of Caseload" and "Staff View Settings" were removed from Role Administration.
  2. "Full Profile View" and "Limited Profile View" permission settings were added to Role Administration.
  3. "Full Profile View" and "Limited Profile View" allow/restrict staff access to certain student tabs and student details based on the full profile view or limited profile view configuration.

The "Limited Profile View" allows staff users that did not have permission to "Search outside of their caseload" the ability to use the Global Search (in the top right) and view limited information on students that are outside of their caseload.

  • The limited profile view does not change anything for users who are permitted to "Search Outside of their Caseload".
  • The limited profile view will display the student name, degree, photo, Message/Follow/Note/Alert action items along with items defined in the logged-in user role(s) limited profile view configuration.
  • Within the limited profile view, staff users can find students, view limited data, and take actions on students outside of their caseload.
  • On actions allowed in a limited profile view, the resulting data is restricted by the user role. 

Click here for additional information about Limited Profile View and Full Profile View permission settings.

Limited Profile View and Full Profile View Troubleshooting

Click here for troubleshooting steps to help resolve the following issues:

  • Activity items are missing on the Student Activity Feed Filter.
  • Staff users cannot access the Activity Feed for a specific Student Filter.
  • Tabs are missing on the staff user's Caseload.
  • Student Filters are missing.
  •  

Bug Fixes

  • Hides student filters created with an "everyone" scope when the logged-in staff user is no longer permitted to search outside of their caseload. If the same user is later allowed to search outside their caseload, the hidden student filters will reappear.

  • Fixes an issue where exporting student filters with commas in the name would not export as CSV.

  • Removes check for a deprecated ‘muted’ property when syncing Canvas LMS Assignments.
  • Fixes an issue where courses with a credit value above 999.99 would fail ‘silently’ and prevent other courses from importing. The fix is that course records with a credit value above 999.99 will not import, yet will no longer stop other courses from importing.
  • Update help text for Automated Tag Filter "Apply when a student is currently enrolled in a course from the specified list" to “Applies when a student has one or more currently registered enrollments within a course with the code specified. Note that a course code is what is being selected for the automated filter, not a course.” When course codes are not unique, then courses listed in Edit mode and Non-Edit mode may not match.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes an issue where changes to Institution Configuration Administration would not immediately take effect.

6.57.0 - 12/10/2021

      • For example, by definition, Degree acronyms must be no longer than 10 characters. Previously, if attempting to import a Degree with an acronym longer than 10 characters, the SIS Import Job would fail. Now, only the Degree import step will fail and it will be skipped over.

      • To clarify, since a student/staff user is only able to log in with a Staff view, the Student view does not apply to them. Therefore, this setting may also remove the visibility of the student's own Courses/Documents/Profile/Programs/Test Score/Transcript information from their view.
      • Eventually, student/staff users will be able to switch to the "Student Application", however, this is not yet available.

6.18.0 - 3/26/21

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes issue on student filter search where duplicate courses are shown on the courses filter.
      • This fix alters the Courses selector on saved and temporary student filters to only show active courses. Active courses are defined as courses with an effective date in the past and an empty or future expiration date.

      • This will prevent "duplicate" courses from showing up in the filter list when those duplicates are actually expired versions of the course. If you continue to see duplicates, please verify that your Course datafeed is appropriately setting effective and expiration dates. See here for information on how to view the contents of a datafeed.

      • Additionally, to improve clarity, this fix removes logic in temporary filters that automatically include other courses with the same name and code as the selected one(s). The filter will now only use the explicitly selected course(s).

      • Any existing saved filters will continue to behave as they do today.

      • The selection criteria logic will continue to work as it does today - it will find students with enrollments for any active course sections for the selected course(s).

         

  • Fixes an issue where changing the filter operator on a report source would not change the filter operator when saved. Upon running this report, an error would be thrown.

The View option will take the user to all of the queries that are run for the specific datafeed. The Configure option will take the user to the configuration of the queries run for the specific datafeed. This column can be seen in the picture below.

Bulk Tasks and Action Plans

It is now possible to create tasks or action plans for an entire filter of students.  Simply select the filter you would like to create tasks for, and press one of the two new buttons in the navbar (you will only see these buttons if you have permission to access tasks)

screenshot-localhost_8080-2021.02.12-16_01_48.png

Clicking on 'Task' will open the following modal:

screenshot-localhost_8080-2021.02.12-16_03_11.png

You can choose a template, or create a new task from scratch.  You will several new options in the "Assign To" field:screenshot-localhost_8080-2021.02.12-16_23_20.png

These fields allow you to dynamically change who the task is assigned to.  You can also assign all tasks to one person by selecting them in the dropdown. Tasks will save in the background, so depending on the size of your filter, it may take a few minutes for you to see them on each student's profile.

To create an action plan, click on the Action Plan button and select an action plan template from the list

screenshot-localhost_8080-2021.02.12-16_03_33.png

Action plans will not be assigned to students that have already been assigned that action plan.  Like tasks, action plans are saved in the background, so it may take a few minutes for you to see them in the activity feed or on students' profiles.

  • On a filter by filter basis, users can now see analytics regarding Student Count, Tasks, Persistence Risk, Course Risk, Appointments, GPA and Credits.
  • Users can access this by clicking on a filter (not including "Everyone" or "Caseload") and then click on the "Analytics" tab on the navigation menu.

An example of this tab can be seen below.

screenshot-demo.avisoapp.com-2021.01.07-17_08_06.png

On an individual student level, users can see analytics regarding cumulative GPA, Credits, Persistence Risk, Course Risk, Attendance and Appointments. Users can access this by navigating to the "Analytics" tab when on a student's profile. An example of this tab can be seen below.

6.7.0 - 12/4/20

Bug Fixes

  • Fixes issue where GPA alerts were not being sent out under certain circumstances
  • The "Currently Enrolled" column on the person report source now checks to make sure the person is registered in a course section that is active and the end date is after the current day. Previously, it incorrectly checked to see if the student was in a course section where current date was between the start and end time of the section.
  • Fixes issue in the SMS Configuration in Admin where the message limit would be updated if the user changed the number limit.

Enhancements

In this release we have made an enhancement to Resources. We have added the ability for users to specify a website as a resource's content. Previously, the content that was shown in a resource was anything that was added to the "Description" field. In the pictures below, you can see the new interface for resources. We have added a navigation bar that shows two pages: Settings and Content. Settings holds all of the same information that this page used to with the exception of "Description" and the new "URL" field.

With these changes, if a user attempts to navigate to a resource that has it's content set as a URL rather than description, then they will be taken to a new tab in their browser to that URL. If a user attempts to navigate to a resource that has it's content set as the description, then they will be navigated to the resource as usual.

    • If Ethnicity is Hispanic the student will always be considered a minority
    • If Ethnicity is not Hispanic and their race is not white, they will be considered a minority
    • If Ethnicity is not Hispanic and their race is white, they will NOT be considered a minority
    • If Ethnicity is not Hispanic and their race is not specified, they will NOT be considered a minority

 

6.3.4 - 10/16/20

Enhancements

Bulk Actions

We've added the ability to create an alert or note for each student in a filter.  We've also improved our UI for sending a message to a filter from the students page.  These bulk actions can be performed in two places-- in the secondary navigation bar above a feed for a filter

screenshot-dev.avisoapp.com-2020.10.13-11_39_00.png

or in the menu for a particular filter, which you can reach by clicking on the three dots next to a filter

screenshot-dev.avisoapp.com-2020.10.13-11_43_08.png

Clicking any of these bulk actions will open a modal.

Like creating an alert for a particular student, when you create an alert for all students in a filter, you can select an Alert Reason, enter a comment, and depending on whether the alert is configured to be sent to students, enter an internal comment.

screenshot-dev.avisoapp.com-2020.10.13-11_55_30.png

Also, much like creating a note for an individual student, when creating a note for each student in a filter, you can select note types and enter a note using our rich text editor.screenshot-dev.avisoapp.com-2020.10.13-11_55_07.png

Bulk alerts and notes are limited to 10,000 students and will save in the background.  It may take a few seconds for you to see the alerts or notes you've created.

When sending a message to a filter, you will now see a modal instead of being redirected to the Messages page:mceclip0.png

Don't worry, you can still select a Filter in the Messages page if you need to send a text message.

Filter By List of Student Ids

You'll see a new box at the bottom of the filter modal titled "Student List"screenshot-dev.avisoapp.com-2020.10.14-11_02_17.png

Inserting a list of student ids separated by commas or a new lines will limit the filter to the students with those ids.  The other filters you specify will still apply.  For example, if you have three students (1,2, and 3) and student 1 has a high persistence risk, then inserting 1,2,3 into the box and selecting High Persistence Risk will only return student 1.  This list is just another filter you can apply to further filter your students.  Of course, you are free to use it on its own without any additional filtering.  Please note - this option is only for New Filters and will not work on Temporary Filters.

Aviso Student Users List

We have added a new page in Admin where administrators can see users that have logged in to the Aviso Student mobile app. The page is called "Aviso Student Users". On this page, admins are able to search for student as well as filter students by when they first logged in to the app.

The users shown on this page are ones that have logged in to the app, but not necessarily users that have the app downloaded. We are currently working on a solution to determine if a user has deleted the app from their phone. Once this is complete, we will make additions to this page that will allow admins to filter by if the students has deleted the app or not.

This page will only be available if the institution has purchased the Aviso Student.

Excused Absences

As per this release, we are enhancing our current excused absence functionality. Previously, instructors would have to create excused absence rules (available on the Excused Absences page) in order to mark a student as excused. Now, instructors are able to mark a student as excused directly on their course attendance page in addition to having the ability to create excused absence rules. As seen in the screenshot below, the user is able to click on the "Excused" button to mark a student as excused. One important factor to note is that a student can now be excused AND absent, tardy or present. Excused is no longer it's own status, it is dependent on other statuses as well.

screenshot-demo.avisoapp.com-2020.08.17-09_20_31.png

This change effects how attendance and first week attendance alerts operate. For example, on an attendance alert, the user is able to create rules determining how they would like the alert to fire. Previously, this would fire when a certain amount of absences was met. But, the administrator can now configure it so that it includes excused absences as well. This can be seen in the screenshot below.

screenshot-demo.avisoapp.com-2020.08.17-10_29_32.png

Similarly, first week attendance alerts allowed the administrator to determine what attendance statuses they would like the alert to fire on. And as stated above, excused used to be its own status. Instead of selecting it as a status now, the administrator can select the attendance statuses they would like and then they can select a checkbox that will alert on excused absences. This can be seen in the screenshot below.

screenshot-demo.avisoapp.com-2020.08.17-10_31_55.png

Location Based Attendance

We have also been able to release another enhancement to the Courses page that goes hand in hand with our Aviso Student app. This enhancement allows instructors to enforce a location for their attendance taking. This will only allow students that are within a preset location radius to submit their attendance. An instructor is able to enforce location for attendance by first clicking the open attendance button in the secondary navigation bar. They will then see a modal (as displayed in the picture below) which has two options. The first option is the duration they would like to have attendance open for. The second option is a checkbox that will enforce the location if checked.

screenshot-acceptance.avisoapp.com-2020.08.17-09_37_52.png

The location that this is used is based off of the building that is associated with the specific course section. This information is imported from an institution's SIS. Administrators are able to set the radius distance used to enforce the location. An administrator can change this value by going to the Attendance Configuration section of Admin.

If a course section does not have a location associated with it, the instructor will not be able to enforce the location for attendance. Instead of seeing the both the duration and location checkbox in the modal shown above, they will instead only see the duration.

Students Page

Activity Feed

As part of this release we have overhauled the current Students page with some exciting new features. Some of these are UI changes to make the pages more appealing, but we have also introduced a new feature that we call the Activity Feed. This feature is designed to give staff members deeper insight into specific events and actions that students and staff are taking through Aviso. An example of this activity feed can be seen in the picture below. Here we have selected a filter on the left sidebar and an activity feed was automatically generated for the filter on the right hand side. In this specific example, the user is able to see items such as tasks being completed, students viewing their academic plan, and alerts being raised for a student. This page is scrollable as well so there are many more items on this list that are not shown. And as always, these items are permissioned according to the current user's roles.

screenshot-beta.avisoapp.com-2020.07.21-07_47_39.png

On this feed, users are able to filter it according to what they want to see. The possible events/items that a user is able to filter on are Alerts, Achievements, Meetings, Notes, Surveys, Tasks, Resource Shares, Academic Plan, Courses, Attendance, Comments, Followings, Success Team Assignments, and Orientation Completions. In order to filter on these items, the user can click on the blue link to the left of the "People" link. Once they do that, they will be shown a modal similar to the picture below. Here they are able to select everything that they would like to appear in their feed. On top of this, the user can use the "People" filter to filter out items or events that were created by that specific person. Users are also able to filter by date.

A new feature that comes with this activity feed is the ability of users to comment on specific items shown in the feed. This can be accomplished by clicking the "Comment" button at the bottom of any item in the feed.

screenshot-beta.avisoapp.com-2020.07.21-07_22_51.png

What has just been shown is the activity feed generated by filters, but an activity feed also exists on each person in the system. Something similar has existed in the past on each person, but was quite limited compared to what we have now. This activity feed works almost exactly the same as the feed on student filters, but it is limited to the specific student. One important distinction is that users can comment directly on a specific student's activity feed whereas users can only comment on events on the activity feed from student filters. This can be achieved by clicking the "Comment" button in the top right hand corner of the activity feed just to the right of the date filtering section. An example of a student's activity feed can be seen below.

screenshot-beta.avisoapp.com-2020.07.21-07_24_15.png

Alerts Tab

Along with the Activity Feed, we have also decided to turn the Alerts Tab into a feed that can be filtered. Within the Alerts tab, users are able to see a running list of alerts opened for a student as well as any actions that have been taken regarding the alert. The filters that users can take on this feed include Alert Types, Alert Reasons, People, Alert Status and dates. An example of this Alerts Tab can be seen below.

screenshot-beta.avisoapp.com-2020.07.21-07_24_47.png

Notes Tab

Similar to the Alerts Tab, we have also turned the Notes Tab into a feed. The filters that can be used on this page are Note Types, People and dates. An example of this page can be seen below.

screenshot-beta.avisoapp.com-2020.07.21-07_25_06.png

Miscellaneous

Other features that were added as part of this change with the students page include:

  • Updated UI for all tabs on the person page
  • A new field was added on the student filter called "Has Open Alerts". Choosing this option will only return students that currently have open alerts

Outreaches

We have added a new feature in our system that will allow users to select a voluntary outreach option when closing an alert for a student. These outreaches can be configured by an administrator in the Admin section of our product. An outreach can have a type that can be one of the following: Email, Text Message, Phone Call, Scheduled Appointment, In-Person (Non-scheduled), None or Other. This can be accessed when closing an alert. In order to close an alert, a staff member would click on the alert in the Alerts Tab which will be displayed similarly to the first image below. On this modal, the staff member would click the "Close Alert" Button in the top left corner, which would then bring them to a page similar to the second image below. Here the staff member can select what outreach they used in order to close the alert and add any comment that they deem necessary.

Report Builder

Another exciting addition that we have made for this release is the Report Builder. This feature will allow users to create their own reports based upon all main sources of content that we display in Aviso. The baked in reports that exist as of today will still be listed on the Reports page along with any new reports created by users.

In order to create a new report the user will navigate to "Reports" in the primary navigation bar and then select "New Report" in the secondary navigation bar. Here the user will see a list of everything that they can report on. These report sources include items such as Messages, Alerts, People and over 20 more. Once the user has decided on what they want to report on they will then be directed to the page shown below.

Here, the user can enter the name and description of their new report. Below those fields are items directly related to the report that will be generated: Columns, Filters, Ordering, Other Settings and Chart.

  • Columns
      • There are many different columns that can be attributed to specific report sources, so this section allows the user to add as few or as many columns as they like.
  • Filters
      • The user can add filters on any column that is currently added to the report. Using filters will allow users to restrict some data from coming back.
      • For example, a user could be using the Alert report source, but only wants open alerts to be returned. In this case, the user would filter on the closed date column and select the "is empty" option as the closed date would not have a value yet.
  • Ordering
      • This allows the user to choose what column they would like the data to be ordered by and if it should be ascending or descending.
  • Other settings
      • There are two miscellaneous settings in this section. They are page size and max rows to export to excel.
      • The page size is relevant for the table generated when running the report.
  • Chart
      • In addition to the table that is returned from running the report, the user can also opt to generate a chart from the data.
      • The available charts to generate are Donut, Pie, Area, Line, Vertical Bar, and Horizontal Bar.

After the user has filled out all of theses fields and saved their report, they will be directed to a screen similar to the picture below.

  • Here they can run their report by clicking the "Run" button in the secondary navigation menu.
  • This will generate the table of data that the user has selected as well as a chart if they opted in to display one.
  • On top of this, the user is able to edit this report, export the data to excel (max rows to export is 10,000) or look at details regarding the report.

Dashboards

With the addition of the Report Builder, we added some exciting new functionality to Dashboards that allows users to showcase their custom built reports on their personal dashboard. We have also added the ability users to customize the layout of their dashboard. 

In order for a user to add a report to their dashboard, they must first go to the edit dashboard page which can be accessed by clicking the "Edit Dashboard" button in the top right of the home page.

  • Once here, the user can click "Add Widgets" on any section.
  • Upon clicking this, the user will be presented with a modal of all premade widgets they can add as well as any report that they have created.
  • After the reports have been added the user will be able to select if they want the report to be displayed as a table of data or as a chart.
  • For example, in the picture below, the user has added four different reports which can be denoted by the buttons on them titled "Grid" and "Chart".

After the report has been saved, the user can then navigate back to their dashboard to see the changes. The results from our previous example can be seen below. The reports "Notes Created in Last 30 Days", "Alerts by Type" and "Academic Plans by Status" were all modified to be charts whereas "Messages Sent by Type This Year" was selected to be a table.

As said previously, users are now also able to create different layouts for their dashboard.

The last two pictures are examples of that.

  • Instead of the default 66%/33% layouts used previously, a 33%/33%/33% layout was used.
  • If a user would like to change their dashboard layout, they would navigate to the edit dashboard page and modify the value in the Layout section.
  • After clicking this option, a modal will appear showing all of the different layouts a user can choose.

This can be seen in the picture below. The only thing that they user will have to do after choosing a layout, is to rearrange their widgets to their liking and save.

File Manager

Another addition that we have made with this release is our File Manager system. This feature is intended to help reduce the time needed to add documents to a student's documents tab on their profile. Instead of having to add a document manually for each student that needs it, an administrator can upload a list of documents prefaced with the student's id and it will be added to their profile automatically. Currently this feature is only supported with Microsoft OneDrive. 

  • To begin using this feature, your institution must first open a support request with us.
  • After that we will need to do some configuration on our side and we will also need to work with your institution's Azure administrator to finish the setup process.

After we have setup your institution with this feature, your institution can begin using this by going to Admin-Advanced-File Manager.

  • When the user reaches this page they will be prompted to login to their OneDrive account so that it will be linked with Aviso.
  • Once this has taken place, the user can select the specific drive that they want to upload the files to.

From here they should see a screen similar to the picture below.

screenshot-localhost_8080-2020.07.21-11_08_32.png

After the user has reached this page, they can create a new folder to upload the specific documents to.

  • This folder name will be the name of the document as it appears on each student's profile.
  • Once the folder is created, the user can upload all of the necessary documents that are prefaced by student's ids.
  • For example, in the first picture below, we uploaded three syllabi for three different students under the folder ENG 101 Syllabus. 
      • After these files have been uploaded, they will now be shown on the student's profile under the Docs tab.
      • This can be seen in the second picture below. 
      • It should also be noted that the documents that appear in the Admin screen will be directly effected by any changes made in the OneDrive account.
      • So for example, if a file is deleted in the OneDrive account, it will also be deleted here as well.
