Features & Improvements

The new file uploader lets you drag-and-drop files to upload them and accepts large files wherever you are in Populi—courses, activity feed, even applications!

You can now add Digital Resources to your Library!

We also added Acquisition Date to the Browse Resources tool.

Library Admins can toggle the Amazon resource description on and off.

The new password-retrieval process for Staff and Faculty now gives you the option to reset your own password. If you have SMS notifications enabled, you can ask Populi to send you a verification code. This code adds an extra security measure for password resets for users with access to sensitive information.

  • To make use of this, you'll need to have an SMS number set up on your profile in Populi.
  • If you don't have an SMS number set up, you'll have to ask a Staff user to send you a password-reset email.

The Tuition Schedule options in the Data Slicer now include AddRemove, and Replace.

Updated the Race/Ethnicity display and fixed an issue with how nonresident aliens are identified.

You can now set up $0 meal and room plans.

Bugfixes

Updated the reporting on Course Evaluation Likert questions to make more sense.

Updated a select on the IPEDS Student Financial Aid report to enable you to select the specific terms for which you're reporting.

Fixed a bug that did not map degree levels to Clearinghouse degree levels.

Fixed the display in retaken transfer credits to make it more obvious that they count as Retakes.

Fixed a bug that insisted that all standardized test scores were for the ACT.

Fixed some issues with transfer credits not counting in the Academic Progress report.

There was no way to find Undecided students in the various Admissions reports. There is now!

Updated the naming convention for transcript exports—they're now in English, not database-ese.

    Your directions are way to complicated for beginners.  You assume knowledge for online classes and terminology for computer maneuvering is present.  To make your page accessible to all those interested in your classes, you must have a complete novice in online/computer skills and work your way through with them present to clarify understanding for the novice.  I find this often on sites, and have for sure found it in this.  Older people who have not grown up with computer saavy, will have problems with the approach you're presenting here.

    @Sharon - Thanks for contacting Populi support. Unfortunately we can only provide support to Populi itself. If you're having difficulty finding things in one of your online courses I suggest you contact your instructor or someone at your school.

    Have a good one!
