More enhancements to Uploading Documents

The ability to add supporting documents to MIS2000 has been around for a long time, initially taking the form of capturing documents from an attached scanner. But as the web app has become more and more popular for certains kinds of data entry and as scanners have become less and less common, the ability to upload PDFs became more of a thing. I covered our initial efforts to support PDF uploads (and other kinds of files as well) in this blog post. A few months later we introduced better management for deleting uploaded documents and I covered that here. But all of that support was separate from the older style of being able to keep scanned documents against students and COEs.

Web Search Speed Improvements

MIS2000 has all sorts of built-in measurements that it keeps track of, things like which features are being used and which are not, how long uploads take, etc. One of the things I look at every month is how long web searches take. I've never been completely happy with our web searches. In some states they're almost instantaneous, but in others, a search can take several seconds, depending on circumstances. Last winter I put quite a bit of effort into optimizing the web searches and was able to get a considerable speed up across the board for all states and all student searches. I didn't work on COE searches at that time.

Enrolled Students filter in Web Search

One of the earliest notions we built into the MIS2000 Web Search is "Active Only", meaning the search would be restricted to "active" students only. And then we support each state in their own definition of what "active" means. That's all covered in this blog post.

Editing Code Tables in the Web App

I'm pretty excited about this new piece of functionality. I haven't been a big fan of our code table editor in MIS2000 for a long time, and I wrote it! I decided all of our code table editing really needs to be done through the web app, so that's what I've done. Now any MIS2000 administrator can visit the new Codes menu item and edit pretty much any code table. It looks like this:
