System Updates for First Quarter 2020

Maintenance Announcement: REPORTER will be unavailable during a maintenance window on Sunday, March 15th from 1:00am until approximately 12:00pm.

During this time, REPORTER will be moved to a new cloud environment. There will be no changes in urls, functionality or access as part of this maintenance. If you have any activities that will be affected during this window, please contact reporter_support@ncsu.edu. While we do not anticipate the application being unavailable during the entire window, we are blocking off all of that time, to ensure the success of the move. This cloud environment update will allow us to be better positioned for functionality enhancements and upgrades in the future.

 

  • Below are the highlights of the recent updates to the REPORTER production environment — to see the full list, please click here.
    • The Bulk Registration process now allows Course Admins to create external accounts at the time of import by including the registrant’s email address, first name and last name in the import template – click here for more details
    • Course Admins now have the ability to create external/guest accounts and update external user profiles, including updating contact and employment information in the Guest Account Management link on the left side menu. All changes are recorded in the user’s account audit history.
    • Updated all text editors to provide a consistent set of editing options, including common formatting choices, ability to set responsive images, and the option to view the HTML source code for the field

    • We are now passing the email address, physical address and phone number (if the details are set up on the registrant’s account) to the Nelnet payment screens during registration to prevent registrant’s from having to enter the information multiple times.
