The following updates were made to the Beacon system on 7/28/2015

New Additions


We've added a new metrics report page that helps administrative users monitor the use of the site and identify students who are receiving the most attention from success network members.


Recommended Triggers

Beginning with this release we will occasionally reveal recommended triggers based on insights that our data science team have identified through their research and work.  The first set contains items from the Student Strengths Inventory that have been identified as outlying questions.  Student who respond in the identified ways tend to be abnormal in their response.


Auto Approve Meeting Requests

We've added a new configuration option for advisors that allow them to choose for meeting requests to be auto approved, reducing the effort to confirm meetings that students ask for.
