RPG Release: Bug Fix on UG Transcript Course Search by Major

December 9, 2020

The Report Prioritization Group just released a bug fix on the BI Portal report Undergraduate Transcript Course Search by Major

In this news story we provide a summary of the change. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to write help@uw.edu and put “BI Portal Report Question: UG Transcript Course Search by Major” in the subject line.

Change Summary:

Based on user feedback, we resolved an issue in the report logic that was causing students that are registered for a selected course to display as “N” or not registered:

  • For a selected course, show me my majors that are Registered, or have not taken the course:

    • This is one of the primary use cases for this report. As an adviser I want to see the following:
      • Among my majors
      • For a given course (or courses)
      • Who has not taken the course and who is currently registered for the course
    • Previously the report incorrectly displayed students that are registered for a course as “N” indicating that they have not taken it. This was incorrect and we fixed it.
    • The report now correctly displays “Reg” if a student is registered for the chosen course.
