  1. Bring us into the new standards of web design.

    Redesign the GUI. Why is it all based on tables? Was it done using a WYSIWYG editor? Come on, we are on HTML5. Even the HTML4 standards recommended against it, HTML5 says don't do it! We really should get a user interface designed with modern principles in mind. CSS truly does go a long way, and I feel like a redesign in this manner would also give the developers a chance to create a user interface that is user friendly, clean, and efficient. No more tables, usher in CSS. Its been around since '96 (and soon, longer than some of…

    • Allow uploading of student grades via a spreadsheet or csv file.

      It would be extremely useful to be able to upload student grades using a spreadsheet or csv (comma separated values) file. With large classes, entering individual grades by hand can be extremely time consuming and prone to entry errors. (Grades can/should be sorted by PID to avoid preferred/first/other name sorting discrepancies.)

      • Why do we have to request reports to be run from the Registrar's Office?

        I was able to view program-specific information in SIS that is not available in ConnectCarolina. I was able to view all the students enrolled in the program, their year in the program, and whether they were active, registered, on leave, etc.In ConnectCarolina to accomplish this task I either have to send numerous emails to the Registrar's Office so they can figure out exactly what it is I'm looking for or go through each student individually. Both of these scenarios are extremely time-consuming and increase the opportunity for errors. The process was more user-friendly in SIS. It is very hard to…

        • default number of credits different from the minimum

          For courses with variable # of credits e.g. Topics 590 for 1-21 credits), the default is the minimum, which results in many students registering for 1 credit when they should register for 3 credits.
          Ideally departments should be able to set defaults by section for such courses, but being able to set 3 as a default would already save a lot of staff time in fixing student's mistakes.

          • keep waitlists

            I would love if you would keep the waitlists instead of dropping them before the semester begins. It makes my job as registrar a lot more difficult by controlling enrollment, and it isn't fair to the students who really wanted to take the class and were on the list.

            • 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?

              • Staff: Need a place to see all of the grade rosters for your department

                It would be good to have a place where you can view the grade rosters for all the courses in your department without needing proxy access to the faculty center.

                  This doesn't always work in each screen (ex: Class Search).

                    • Staff: Better explain restrictions on courses in the course information or in the error message

                      Students often receive vague error messages, such as "requisites have not been met." Students don't understand what this means. A more straightforward explanation for the restriction (this course is restricted to majors, or first-year students, etc.) would be helpful for students and help avoid confusion. Advisors receive many inquiries from students when they don't understand the error message they are receiving.

                      • Staff: Add PID's in the Advisee Student Center in Advisor Center.

                        We have to go into Advisor Notes to find the PID. It would be great to have it displayed in the Advisee Student Center. It also displays the student's preferred name instead of the official name.

                            • Faculty: Consistent capitalization needed so that student rolls sort alphabetically

                              My large classes have students with various schemes: Smith, John; SMITH, JOHN; smith, john. The CC database sorts these all differently, meaning I have to search at the bottom of the roll or at the top of a letter for my students. It makes entering grades annoying and introduces the possibility of errors.

                                • Staff: Make updates to applications immediate so we can complete what needs to be done.

                                  When we update information (like waive a rec. letter), make updates immediate so we can continue doing what we have to with that application. It is frustrating to have to wait 24+ hours to make a final decision on an application.

                                  • Staff: Confirmation that grades were submitted successfully

                                    It would be helpful to receive a confirmation email or notification that grades were submitted successfully (approved and saved). It would also be helpful to receive notification if there are grades that are "ready for review" or "not reviewed" that need to be approved.

                                        • Manage Grad Applicants tab, the First, Next, & Last buttons need to be added to bottom as well.

                                          Right now, they are only at the top, but it would save time to have these buttons in both locations. Trust me, that little bit of time you save by not scrolling or hitting the Page-Up button will add up.
