Feedback

What suggestions do you have to improve ConnectCarolina? The feedback given here will be used to assist the Users Forum in prioritizing communication with ITS.

Faculty, staff, and students are now in the same forum (due to outrageous pricing demands by UserVoice). Our apologies, we’re working on a better solution.

How can we improve ConnectCarolina?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

  1. Student: Let us search by a range of course numbers

    Right now we can only search for courses equal to, less than, or greater than a certain number, but it'd be very useful to search in a range (to cut out grad courses, for instance).

    • If a course has reserved seats, let us know if we meet those requirements before we register

      Right now, we can only see that a course has enrollment restrictions (reserved seats) but not whether we meet those restrictions or who could meet those restrictions. We have to wait until we register to find out whether we can even enroll in the course. It'd also be nice, but less important, to know what the restrictions are (for majors, for upperclassmen, etc).

      • Student: Let you see how many spots are open in a course from the Shopping Cart

        Right now, the only way to see how many seats or spots open in a class is to search for it--you can't see it when you click on the item if it's already in your shopping cart.

        • Extend wait lists until the last day to add courses.

          Now that ConnectCarolina does a great job managing registration wait lists, why not give departments the option to extend the life of the waitlist until the last day to add a course?

          • Student: New field on Shopping Cart to let you add a specific course directly without searching.

            Replace "Add by Class Number" by "Add by Course Subject, Number, and Section"--a user could type in a course ("ENGL 101 001") and click a button to immediately be taken to the "Add to Shopping Cart" page.

              • Student: Fewer steps to enroll in a selected course.

                The process of enrolling in a course requires first placing courses in the shopping cart, then manually selecting them before being allowed to enroll. This takes a lot of clicking an reloading of pages, during which a connection time out could require you to start all over. A direct "save" and "enroll" button would achieve the same.

                  • Student: Improve Day of Week Search options

                    Currently, in the Course Search Engine when searching by days of the week one can select include the following:

                    Include only = Include all of
                    Include any = Include at least one of
                    Exclude only = Must not include every one of the following
                    Exclude any = Must not include any of the following

                    These options, while perhaps technically correct, do not do what a student expects. A better set would be:

                    Include only = Exclude courses that meet on days not checked
                    Include any = Include courses that meet on any of the days selected (as
                    well as others) …

                    • Student: Allow users to see their registration time on the main Student Center page.

                      Right now, the only way for a student to see their registration time is to go to the detailed Enrollment Appointment page, which is confusing. Putting the time as well as the date on the main Student Center page would make the system less confusing,
