Planned Release Dates

  • Phase I: Tuesday, 22 August 2023
  • Phase II: Tuesday, 29 August 2023



TCSI Notifications

New integration enables you to see a list of notifications from the TCSI platform directly within JR Plus, without the need to check the TCSI Portal. The page can be used like to a 'to-do' list, letting you check off notifications when actioned.

This functionality is opt-in. To turn it on, navigate to Administration > Configuration > Preferences. Then navigate to Integration > Integrated Systems followed by add or edit TCSI Integration. Tick the Enable Notification Retrieval checkbox.


To view TCSI Notifications, go to Administration > Audit/Logs > Integration Centre > TCSI then select the Notifications tab. This screen displays the TCSI notification and date, a link to the JR Plus record, and a tick icon on the right to mark the notification as actioned.


TCSI Notifications are automatically retrieved each night and can also be refreshed manually. When a CHESSN Allocated notification is received, JR Plus will retrieve the student’s CHESSN from TCSI and automatically update the CHESSN field on the student’s record.

TCSI Notifications are also linked from the enrolment, via the Compliance > VSL / Fee-Help page then the TCSI Status link.

For more information on this functionality, refer to this article: TCSI Notifications


Automatic SmartFees – report for Outstanding Suggestions

There is now a feature for Outstanding Suggestions Report, which allows you to run a report that lists all Automatic SmartFee suggestions that have not been accepted. This is intended to be useful for scenarios where you want to roll over your pricing and need to check that the old pricing has been applied across all your existing enrolments.


New ‘Party ID’ Filter on Feedback form page

We have added a filter option for Party ID to the feedback form page and set it as a default value when navigated to via a party profile.


API Improvements

We now allow you to retrieve all subjects related to enrolled units by using the GET /enrolment_units?include[]=subjects API call. Because a unit can have many subjects, the subject name and code will be returned in an array. If there is no associated subject for that unit then the subjects key will not be present in the API response.

In order to return the subject information, the API user needs to add in include[]=subjects query parameter. By default this will not be included.

The Enrolment API (GET) has been updated to allow a query parameter for VSL Enabled Enrolments. You could retrieve all VSL Enabled Enrolments with the following API endpoint GET /webservice/enrolments?vsl_enabled_enrolments.

Moodle 4.1 SSO
