Edit Prospect

Any existing Prospect record can be edited directly from the UI, no matter how they were originally entered into the system (imported via a CSV file import, the SIS import, or manually entered).

  • Manually deleting prospect data will remove the data from the prospect profile on the UI, however this same data may reappear if entered on a subsequent inquiry form/entered again.
  • Adding prospect data will add this data to the prospect profile on the UI, however this data can subsequently be edited or removed.

To edit a Prospect record:

1)Select the prospect

2) Select the Edit icon from the top right corner of the prospect record


3) Select the relevant tab in order to change/update add/remove prospect data from the prospect profile

  • The available tabs are: Person, Phones, Addresses, High Schools, and Academic Interests

Note: At most institutions, prospects will most likely not display a Success Team on their prospect record if prospects are not associated with a success team. If that's always the case,  "People - Success Team" can be removed from the UI by disabling Profile Features in Prospect Person Type Administration.


Manual Data Deletion Integration

Since the Person Phone data feed integrates data deletion with the SIS, the Person Phone data feed view will also allow Administrator users to manually delete person phone records.

  • Even when Prospect Person Phone data does not originate from the SIS, all prospect phone records will display on the Person Phone Data View and therefore any prospect phone record can be manually deleted from the Person Phone Data View, found here.
  • If the Prospect Person Phone data is importing from the SIS, deleted records will re-import if the data is not removed from the source data in the SIS.
