It would be great to add enhancement requests to this venue, rather than on PowerSource.  However, we will need to add UC and Learning to the product dropdowns.

Hi @KElms!

 

Thank you so much for your post. We are always happy to hear your feedback and are excited to hear ideas to improve PowerSchool's solutions. While there is not currently a feature in place for users to submit suggestions directly, we are happy to share any of that feedback on your behalf as needed! I will also share this with the Product team to let them know this is something you are interested in seeing in the future.

 

Best,

Re: PowerSchool Community Feedback and Suggestions

Hello! The email updates for subscriptions seem to need formatting assistance. For brevity, I am posting only the first 2 screenshots of what an email update from a post containing a table looks like. It's... not pretty. (I would guess I'd need about 30 or more screenshots to show the entire email.) The unfortunate part is that the email does not even contain the first paragraph of the post, which is the most pertinent information.

 

Suffice it to say, the original post is here (SRP Reports - [NOT a release notification]). When a notification of the post was sent from PowerSource, it was much cleaner and more succinct (indicated below with a screenshot).

 

I had hoped subscribing to posts would be more like receiving PS Technote notifications.

Hello @MattH8,

 

Thank you for your feedback!  I understand the formatting could have been a bit more reader-friendly.  The feedback you provided will be taken into consideration. Also, we do recommend you subscribe to your state to receive your state specific reporting only.  

 

Again, thank you for providing the feedback and please continue to provide suggestions on ways we can look to improve!

 

Best,

Re: PowerSchool Community Feedback and Suggestions

It would be most helpful if teachers were able to bulk grade one question on an assessment at a time.  Right now, I have to open each student's assessment individually and migrate through to score one question at a time.  This is not an efficient use of time.  However, grading all of let's say question #4 on a test means that I am far more consistent in scoring than if I were to do every question for each student before moving on the the next student's assessment.  Online platforms like Actively Learn have this as an option and it's wonderful!  They also allow for anonymous grading.  This too would help teachers to remain unbiased while evaluating student work.  Please consider adding these functions to grading an online assessment on Haiku.  Thank you.

Hi @collinss,

 

Thanks for reaching out! I can certainly see how it would be helpful to be able to bulk grade one question at a time on an assessment, along with anonymous grading.  I will flag your suggestion as feedback for our Product Team to review. Whenever they have a feature planning session, they personally review and categorize all cases flagged as Enhancement Requests.

 

Thank you for taking the time to tell us how we can improve!  If any further information is needed from our Product Team, they will reach out to you.

 

Best,

IDEAS FOR TALENTED PRODUCTS

 

1) Records: Dashboard

Records for system admin should have a dashboard when you first sign in instead of the task list, or an option to view a dashboard, with all pinned people showing "name, checklist type, checklist % completion, due date, and status (not urgent, neutral, urgent)" and then be able to notify the system admin when someone is approaching due date/due date has expired and paperwork is not complete. Records has terrible organization and the report feature makes you go checklist by checklist to get this data that I should be able to easily capture at once.

 

2) Hire: Job Status

SO many people are always wanting to know what the status of the job is.....open for applications, interviewing, hired/closed. At this time, you can only update an individual's status. And job postings the only options are open and posted on website or closed and not posted on website. We keep our jobs posted until they are filled, but then we get people applying when interviews are already happening. It is too difficult to change each person's status for all jobs, even if using bulk actions. It would be much easier to be able to have our website show live job statuses that I can change quickly with one click of a button. Or even better, that hiring managers can change at the click of a button.

 

Ex. "Open for Applications"; "Closed for Applications;" "Interviewing"; and then filled/hired would take it off the website and the hire page with the checkbox to notify and change all other candidates status to "position filled" would work for that final step.
