Academic Course Optimizer Updates

Improved Method to Match Buildings and Rooms

When importing courses from your student information system, you first need to match the name of the building and room in the SIS to the building and room in Mazévo. This process has been streamlined to reduce the number of clicks. Less clicking = good 😀


New Assign SIS Room Function

For courses that come over from your Student Information system with a room already assigned, you can now tell the Optimizer to use that room instead of possibly assigning it to another space.


New Instructor Back to Back Filter for Optimizer

The Optimizer will now identify and filter all the courses taught back to back for the same instructor.


Number of Rooms in Optimizer Grid Increased

You can now view 100 courses at a time without clicking to the next page in the Optimizer. This can be increased to up to 500 courses if you wish.


New Optimizer Workflow

The way that courses from your SIS are processed has been improved with a more intuitive workflow.


New Room Type Preference based on Course Type

You can now have the Optimizer find rooms for courses based on the type of course. For instance, labs can be placed in labs, and lectures can be placed in auditoriums.  


New Academics Conflicts in DAAG

After you process a term, any events bumped to make room for a course are displayed in Day at a Glance.


New Confirmation Message when Deleting Resources on an Event

If you attempt to delete a resource from an event, you will now see a message asking you to confirm if you are really sure you want to delete the resource.


Canceled Bookings are Ignored if there is a Mix of Statuses

Events that have bookings that are both confirmed and canceled will now show as confirmed. Previously, if the event had a mix of canceled and confirmed bookings and the next booking was canceled, it would look like someone canceled the event to the requester unless they clicked into the event to see the individual bookings.


Manage Operations Changes

Better Filtering for Operations Managers Choosing Staff

When an operations manager selects who is on their sales team they will now see a limited list of users who have the operations worker, operations manager roles or global administrators. Inactive users with those roles will  also be hidden.  Previously you had to sift through a list of all users in the system when selecting staff members.

Manage Operations Bookings and Work Items Grid Columns are Now Resizable

We fixed a bug that was causing assigning staff to work items not to function correctly.
