Report Card And Transcript Builder Works Harder For You

We’re constantly evolving the Report Card and Transcript Builder process for you and this past release on May 1 wasn’t an exception to this fact. We added a few subtle features that if you blink, you may just miss entirely.

So, in case you missed it, here are some of the smart changes made to both the Report Card and Transcript builder processes under Academics.

Improved Dragging and Dropping! This is one area of the update that is easily overlooked, especially when viewed alongside the more obvious changes that we’ll discuss in a minute. When dragging and dropping new items on a Report Card or Transcript, the response time has been improved. Following the May 1 update, schools should be seeing a big difference when adding new sections to templates and moving them around.

Readability Enhanced! Another subtle change, but one that I feel is a big quality of life improvement for this feature. After opening a report card or transcript template, the left navigation is now expanded by default. This makes it easier for users to see which header each section lives under and eliminates the expand collapse guessing game that can happen until you find what you need. Typically, it’s in the last place that you look, right?

New Headers and Fields! Arguably the most obvious change, the May 1 release saw numerous fields added to the Student Header. The Student header now displays the student’s name, preferred address, their birth date, enroll date and graduation date. We also created a brand new section called School header. Similar to the Student header, this new section is all about the school. It displays the school’s name, main address, and phone number. Of course, users can edit these sections to add or remove fields as needed.

Naturally, we’re going to continue to make this feature even better as 2019 continues, but we do hope that these newly added updates make the process even better.
