  1. Share multiple subjects with a centre at the same time

    Currently each subject has to be shared with a centre individually. For qualifications such as Functional Skills where there are eight subjects this means a user has to repeat the sharing process eight times. It would be easier if a user could select multiple subjects and share them with a centre at the same time.

    • Flag resits at set amount

      It would be nice if there was an option to set a flag or automatic email at a specific number of sittings on a specific exam i.e. on the 3rd result for a specific exam a flag appears on the candidate record and/or the system emails a specific person.

      This would allow more easy identification of exams being repeatedly re-sat and could be used to alert relevant people.

        The ability to review who is listed by which role in their centre or by site admin across users. If you have roles and wish to amend them you will need to know exactly who these roles relate to. Also to extract details of site/ centre users.

        • Alert if student already in system but retired when importing in large numbers

          If importing spreadsheet of students there is no alert if a student hasn't been imported in and already in the system but retired. Even a pop up warning saying this student wasn't added in as is already in system. As then you have to go through your list and check individually to find the student who isn't there because numbers don't tally for example.

          • Centre Stats improvement

            On the #setup/centres page I can see that a centre has "X" amount of subjects attached. It would be very good to be able to click on this number which would then tell you what those subjects are. At the moment I cant find a way of seeing these subjects without clicking on every subject and then seeing if its shared with a particular centre.

            • Set Up - Users cannot amend their own email address

              In Set Up users are not allowed to edit any of their own data including email address. This is an issue for re-set password.

              (My Profile in SecureAssess allowed users to update their email address in the system)

              • Introduce share subject permission so user doesn't have to be a site administrator to share subjects with centres

                Currently a user has to be a Site Administrator to see the Share Subject button in Subjects which they need to share subjects with centres. This means the user has a higher level of access than they need for their job. There are existing Create Subjects and Manage Subjects roles but neither of these allow a user to share a subject. A new Share Subject role could allow access to this and would let the user to carry out their job without needing to be a Site Administrator and having access to parts of the system they don't need.

                    Hi Craig,

                    Sorry for the late response to your idea. This would be a simple UI improvement therefore the design team have moved this to their backlog.

                    Thanks
                    Sophie

                  • Introduce external item sources role so a user doesn't have to be a site administrator to link a CP project to a subject

                    Currently a user has to be a Site Administrator to see the External Item Sources radio button in subject groups. This means that a user that works in item and test creation has access to the whole system when they don't need for their job. This could be included in the Manage Subjects role as these users also work in ContentProducer. This would allow them to link CP projects to a subject group with being a Site Administrator and having access to parts of the system they don't need.
