Campus Solutions Ongoing Projects

Bundles 38 & 39 Retrofit
Status:  Active
% Complete:  21%
To apply the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions application software Bundles #38 and #39 which delivers regulatory compliance updates for Financial Aid Regulatory Releases 3 and 4 for 2015 – 2016. It also provides a number of software fixes, enhancements and satisfies the prerequisites for Campus Solutions Bundle 40. We will also apply the Oracle Managed Services Retrofit project and any Oracle prerequisite patches or post bundle release critical patches.

LOLA and TCA Contact Pages for Text Messaging
Status:  Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
We need to add the following to LOLA (separate page) and Texas Common App. The fields have to be able to be queried.
Lone Star College would like to communicate with you via text or phone call (including automatic calls and automatic texts) on a limited basis. These texts or calls would be aimed at making you aware of important information regarding your account, financial aid/scholarship information or awards, or to make you aware of items requiring your attention. Text messaging will be limited to students residing in the USA. If you choose to allow automatic text messages and automatic calls, please be sure the cell number you provide on this application is the number at which you wish to receive messages.
Would you like to receive updates via text messaging from Lone Star College? Yes or No
Would you like to receive updates via automatic calls from Lone Star College? Yes or No
By checking these boxes and submitting this form, I agree to receive phone calls and/or text messages from or on behalf of Lone Star College, regarding its products and services, at the phone number(s) provided on this form, including my wireless number (if applicable). I also agree to notify Lone Star College if the number I provide no longer belongs to me. I understand that these calls may be generated using an automated technology. I understand that consent is not a condition of registration.

Milestones Update
Status:  Active
% Complete:  34%
The following tickets were closed and combined into this project.

1. INC0083349: Change run control for 1st milestone template process. Request ability to enter multiple terms to pick up everyone that should be assigned a template.  Either multiple terms or terms greater than xxxx would work.  Records & Enrollment > LSC Custom Recs & Enroll > LSC Enroll Students > Assign TSI Milestones in Batch

2. SCTASK0177941: We need to create a new TSI Milestone for the new Mathways initiated by the state which can complete students with a Non-Algebra Intensive pathway.  We will not be able to add a rule for this to show completion as it's not the "normal" TSI Math Complete.   We will basically have two ways to complete math for TSI. 1) Regular Algebra Intensive path – TSI Math (what we have now) and 2) Non-Algebra Intensive path – new.

Modifying Files Sent via Campus Solutions SAIP to Desire2Learn
Status: Active
% Complete:  0%
The current course titles sent via SAIP do not currently include any semester information.  We propose appending a short semester identifier to the session code in order to resolve this issue.  As the course titles are already quite long, the semester identifier would need to be short keeping two letters to identify the term (SP, SU, FA) and two numbers to identify the year.  An example of this course title may be "Introduction to Spreadsheets ITSW-1404-4001 SP14-1" where the SP14 and a dash are added before the session number.  This would resolve an issue where instructors cannot find their current course in the mail and course copy tools when they teach the same course and section over multiple terms.

New Library System Script Extract
Status: Active
% Complete:  80%
The library system will be moving to a new library system on Nov. 13, 2015 and will need new scripts to extract the data and put it in the correct format as needed by the new system. 

Colleague Sunset
Status: Active
% Complete:  26%
To formally and officially retire all Colleague users from the prior ERP systems, Colleague, and NHCC (old NHMCCD system).

RSAN Emergency Management
Status: Active
% Complete:  10%
To create student files for the RSAN emergency system.

SAIP/Online College Phase 2
Status: Planning
% Complete:  0%
Staff Provisioning in Desire2Learn
(Users not currently enrolled in a course in Campus Solutions are not in Desire2Learn (D2L).  Utilizing Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messaging a new user can be provisioned in D2L in real time and the user can then be logged in.)

Automatically Activate/Deactivate Fully Online Courses
(Modifications to the Campus Solutions Student Administration Integration Pack (SAIP) process should allow for the automatic activation, or deactivation, of fully online courses based on the status in Campus Solutions.  Currently all courses come over as deactivated by default and this behavior should continue for all courses which are not fully online.)

Send Enrollments for Course Observations through SAIP
(Create a process for assigning multiple course observers, teaching assistants and librarians while sending these enrollments through SAIP.)

Update the Run Control for the SAIP process
(Currently all files are sent in separate announcements with hard coded timings.  D2L is expecting these files to all be in a single announcement.  The SAIP process should be updated to send all of these files in a single announcement.  When single files are selected, the timing should be configurable.)

SAIP Real Time (Close to)
(Adjust the SAIP Interface so that we can move to a close to real time integration.)

SPEEDE Transcript Phase 2
Status: Planning
% Complete:  0%
Second phase of the SPEEDE inbound process.

TouchNet Mobile Application
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
LSC is moving to a mobile platform for many of its registration and website activities. We would like to add the payment feature to this as well.  Students can currently pay on their mobile devices but it requires alot of manipulation (pinching and scrolling, etc) to complete the task.  The TouchNet mobile app will provide a better student payment experience for phones, tablets, etc.
