TCSI Sync Status Indicators
TCSI sync status indicators have been added to all major individual records pages to allow users to easily monitor and sync records from each page directly without navigating to the full record list in the Integrations Centre.
These statuses are only visible for clients who have the TCSI feature flag turned on and have successfully setup the TCSI API integration. Sync statuses have been added to the following pages:
- Program Location
- Party (VSL/Fee-Help)
- Against each Party SA-HELP record in the table on Party VSL/Fee-Help Enrolment
- Against each Client Unit of Study record in the table on an Enrolment
- Certificate Register
A series of sync statuses are available for each relevant page:
If the record is not yet ready for reporting to TCSI, the status will be Not Applicable. If the record does not exist, the status will be Never Synced. If the status is Queued, it automatically refreshes every 5 seconds so that the user can see it change after the sync is completed if they leave the page open.
Clicking a TCSI status indicator will open a new TCSI sync modal window. This shows some details of the record, the last sync dates and TCSI UID from the record if it exists, and its last 10 TCSI API sync logs. If the status is Not Applicable, a list of reasons for why the record is not yet ready for TCSI reporting will appear.
The user can ignore/monitor the record, or sync directly from the modal. Pressing Sync will cause the modal to refresh to show the Queued status, and while in Queued status it will automatically refresh every 5 seconds to show the outcome of the sync if the user keeps it open.
USI Web Services v5
We have implemented all the changes required to support the latest USI Web Services version 5 update which the USI live from 1st September.
From an end user's perspective the changes are:
A mandatory driver’s license card number field for all States and Territories except Victoria and Queensland
Emojis are now blocked in free text fields, like names (not allowed by the system anyway). Note: special characters already allowed in name fields should not be restricted with the emoji / image restrictions.
There is a new field to allow capturing of the new card number field in jurisdictions where that is available on the Create USI screen.
While we were there we have also improved the system when entering a date of birth to allow user to choose a value from a calendar.
Party Invoice page
Added a Finance Summary section with 6 new widgets on the Party → Finance → Invoice page
Event Clash Detection
The event clash detection logic has been improved so that it correctly detects when events overlap and are located in the same room. Previously, clashes were only detected when there was an exact match on the “Title” of the 2 events and they had an exact match on both the start and end times.
Feedback Forms Assignee
The “Assignee” field for feedback forms has been improved so it now includes users without the Staff role. The sorting has also been improved to sort by type and then alphabetically by first name and last name.
The Frequency field has been removed as an option when configuring an Immediate invoice trigger. The Frequency field will only be available when configuring a Scheduled invoice trigger. This is because an immediate invoice trigger is expected to trigger once (not on a recurring schedule/frequency)
Course > Payment Option
Course Units API
We have added a new flag enabled_includes_only course units API that will allow users to filter out any disabled units.
The ability to set and certify/ratify an outcome for an enrolment unit is now possible through the /webservice/enrolment_units endpoint.
We have made the Payment Gateway Provider field mandatory for course forms with payments enabled to ensure that payments are not enabled for course forms without also including a method to pay by.
We have made some improvements to event automations, and now when adding automations against existing events that target the Event Start or End time, the attendees are being included in the task queue.
We have implemented a new pop-up screen to warn users when a session is about to expire, this screen will give the user an option to extend their session without being logged out.
Or if when it has expired:
We’ve made a few updates on our Student Import function.
The Student Import function has been updated to ignore blanks if the corresponding value is blank in the upload file.
- A new Bypass Conflicts is introduced to the Student Import function to process data that is not limited to 50 records
- The Student Import template file has been updated to include the Funding Source National. If a valid value exists in the upload file, then it will be used to create a new enrolment. If no value exists, then the Funding Source National value will be sourced from the Course.
