Update 12.12 brings with it plenty of new content, enhancements, and fixes for Core, onBoard, onRecord, and the Smart Tuition integration as well.

Here’s a look at some of the features coming this month:

onBoard: Make contract payments offline with In-School Payments. One of our most requested features is finally here! Enrollment managers can enable In-School Payments with onBoard contracts to allow families to make payments on deposits or enrollment fees offline.

This setting can be found inside Deposit Block Settings from onBoard > Settings > Contract Forms. The text that appears for end users can also be completely customized to provide users with instructions on what to do, or additional information as needed.

onBoard: Confirm contract sections with signer acknowledge. Need a way to ensure parents agree to contract terms? Adding the Signer Acknowledge block to onBoard or Smart Tuition enabled contracts is the answer. With this tool, managers can verify that a signer has looked over that page of the contract, as they'll need to add their initials before the next page can be loaded.

onRecord: Verify Course Requests With Prerequisite Checks. With prerequisite checks, onRecord now checks to confirm that students have met the requirements in order to select a course.

The student course request page now provides added details for students if they don’t meet a particular requirement for a course including missing a specific grade, credit, or enrollment requirement from a different course.

For the complete list of new features and enhancements in 12.12, make sure to read through our release letter.
