What We Covered:
At July's Demo Days, attendees discussed a new feature within our new student information system coming July 2019, Engagements.
Dynamic communications plans, Engagements will let you schedule targeted emails, create custom audiences, and more. Although the standards and processes for Engagements are yet to be developed, we saw a sneak peek of the steps involved with building plans, emails and creating the audiences that can update dynamically as students continue to meet set criteria. Our presenters (Sean Hanna and Liz Powell shown below) went into the non-production UR Student environment to show how it looks from the administrator's perspective as well as the student's.
A survey is sent out every month which will capture feedback from attendees to ensure we are informing all impacted users appropriately. If you missed this session, visit our Demo Days page to view a playback of the event.
Please note: we're taking off for August (it's a little busy for everyone), so in September you'll learn about two timely UR Student topics:
- Registration Process (suggested for all faculty and staff members)
- Undergraduate Major Declaration Process (best for Undergraduate Advisors, Registrars, Coordinators, Undergraduate AS&E faculty, and those in Student Records and Undergraduate departments).
As always, everyone is welcome at these demonstrations to get a preview of how UR Student will work. It's also a great opportunity to ask questions specific to your area and offer ideas for system features.
