March 11 to March 15, 2024 Release Notes

Features & Improvements

If your school uses PowerFaids or Regent with Populi Financial Aid, you have two new bulk actions available to you:

  • The Disbursements report has Update Term Link.
  • The Awards report has Update Aid Year.

Happy clicking, you lucky few!


Found a loophole through which was slithering a serpent that broke grace periods on payment deadlines when you edited Payment Plan deadlines for a student.

In Library, if you were adding a resource using an ISBN number, any diacritics in the author's name would render as incomprehensible computer gibberish.

Found an issue with Calendar event UIDs (whatever those are, some kinda highfalutin' computer gibberish I'll wager) that could cause events to duplicate themselves when syncing with Google Calendar.

The SAIG Log was incorrectly reporting that Populi doesn't import the IDS24OP file type, but that's just a fancy computer gibberish term for "2023-2024 ISIR", so we taught that SAIG Log a lesson.

Videos and Focus Sessions

These upcoming Focus Sessions would like to have some words with you regarding...

  • ...Introduction to Degree Audit: Get schooled on programs, degree requirements, course groups, course mapping, exceptions, transcripts and so on. This will be most useful to Academic Admin and Registrar users. It's scheduled for March 21st, 2024, 11:00 AM Pacific time.
  • ...Introduction to Financial Aid: Get educated regarding 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 March 26th, 2024, 11:00 AM Pacific time.

Later this afternoon an updated video regarding login approvals without a smartphone shall hit our YouTube channel. When it's out there, we'll update these notes, but you can also go to YouTube and just hit refresh until the new video appears (not recommended).
