        • Staff: Quicker name without PID search function.

          Right now searching by a name (last & first) takes about 10x longer than the old name search in SIS (screen 002).

          • 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.

              • Faculty: I would really like to see a consistent means of returning to the previous screen.

                Some screens include a cancel button that returns the user to the previous screen , some do not. Some screens have "return to search results", some do not. Some use the browser back button, some do not - it seems almost random.

                  • Student: Include a "balance" column in the account activity section

                    I know when we sign in that it tells us if we owe anything, but it would be nice to see how the account activity affects the account balance...I always have to go to the bills to see how the charges affect my account.

                    • Faculty: Make application documents (via imagenow) default to full screen

                      I'm required to click on the fit width (one with two arrows) button for documents to fill the imagenow window. Currently, the default is full-page. I recently found out (via online module from CC homepage) that I can change this setting by going to file, then options and selecting fit width BUT I would prefer that this would be the default for everyone.

                      • Staff: It's very hard to find/search by a student's FULL NAME

                        On some screens (especially the campus directory) a student's legal name won't bring up the student. You have to search by a nickname: eg, search for Joey instead of Joseph. In fact, the only way to find out a full name anywhere in Connect Carolina (that I know of) is to search for the student (by PID?), then from the student's screen, click at the bottom for Return to Search. The one-line "list" at the bottom of the page that you "return" to gives the full name. (Even the "Names" section of the General Information page in the Student Center…

                        • 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.

                          • 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.)

                                  • 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) …
