  3. Update Merge Field Verbiage in Email Template Editor

    I LOVE having the ability to edit my own email templates! THANK YOU!

    To make these new screens more user-friendly, I have some suggestions for updating language for merge fields that the end-user can include in their templates.

    I have uploaded two image files that describe, in more detail, the request I have. Primarily, I want to request to distinguishing what exactly the merge fields are, and updating language slightly to more clearly define their intended use/output for the end-user.

    For example:
    1: Distinguishing in more detail the difference between the Admin and Primary Admin fields, and then more accurately…

  4. Add filters to dashboard for programs.

    It would be nice to be able to fiilter results in the ETD dashboard to view the impact of different programs. Allowing users to filter by "Degree Awarded" and "Department" would be a good way to do this.

  5. Put checklist and decision on the same page

    Generally, our decision is based on the checklist--doing both from the same page would be helpful.

  6. Configure Administrative Document requirements by degree type

    The Administrative Documents page is used to collect additional documents from students that are not directly related to the ETD submission process (e.g. Graduation exit surveys, approval forms, etc.). These documents can be made required or optional. However, some documents may be applicable to doctoral students but not masters, or vice-versa (e.g., Survey of Earned Doctorates).

    Consider allowing an Administrative Document to be required for Masters students only or for Doctoral students only.

  12. Limit Degree Date Month options

    Degree Date Field during student submission: allow to edit the options in the Month dropdown to include only certain months. Our school confers degrees only in the months of November, March and May. Having all months listed allows for errors as students may choose the wrong month and then it needs to be corrected.

  13. Allow for non-traditional / non-pdf File Types as main file

    For graduate programs that have a movie or audio file as the primary output of the program, I would like to have that file be the primary file. Currently the ETD Administrator workaround of putting in "placeholder" pdf and including the main file as a supplemental file does not meet my needs.

  15. ETD Admin Reports - Report Management

    As an ETD administrator, I would like to be able to save reports with a set of selections that I choose so that I can run this report again without having to re-create it. I would also like to be able to edit the report and save these updates, or save a modified report with a different name.

    *ETD administrators - please add your comments and suggestions for this type of report management so we can ensure to capture what best meets your needs. We welcome your feedback. *

  16. Add document upload functionality to administrative documents page

    The administrative documents section is intended as a spot to upload university-specific documents, but there isn't a way to attach documents in the prompt. Consider adding an "attach" function so that admins can add blank versions of the document to the prompt (so that it is easily accessible to students, instead of requiring hyperlinks in the prompt, or for students to have to retrieve it elsewhere.

  17. Add note advising students not to use institutional email address

    Students sometimes enter their institutional email, which often expires very soon after graduation. Requiring an address that isn't from the institution (via some kind of validation), or at least reminding them to use one, would be very helpful.

  18. Provide an option to notify (email) the student when their submission is assigned to an administrator

    Provide the option to automatically email the student (perhaps through a check box) when their submission is assigned to another administrator.

  20. Add note under the Institutional Student ID field

    We’ve seen some cases where a student has entered in the wrong text instead of their correct Harvard ID number. Will you please add a note under the Institutional Student ID field that says, “Harvard HUID”.
