August 14 to August 18, 2023 Release Notes

Features & Improvements

The new Populi API is now out of beta! We first released it several months back so some early adopters could put it through its paces, give us feedback, and unearth a few bugs. And it's now ready for primetime! A few things...

  • Here's the documentation for the new API.

Videos and Focus Sessions

  • Introduction to Financial Aid, a pleasant amble alongside financial aid settings, awards, packaging aid, disbursements, aid applications and so on. This will be most useful to Financial Aid and Financial Admin users. It's scheduled for August 24th, 2023, 11:00 AM Pacific time.

Josh summarizes what Populi does, which is replace a whole bunch of software that doesn't work together with one system that, um, does work together.
