Archiving COE data with Snapshots

One of the reasons that we started the MS/EdD blog was to be able to share information about enhancements and features of MIS2000 with our users which they might not otherwise know are available.    For this blog entry, I’d like to talk about COE Snapshots.   COE snapshots are a relatively new enhancement to MIS2000 which can be enabled for states using electronic COEs.   A COE snapshot is a snapshot of a COE, in the form of a pdf,  which is taken at the time that a COE becomes approved.   This snapshot is permanently stored with the COE and will always reflect the state of the COE at the time of approval, even if some of that data is altered at a future point time.  These snapshots can be displayed from within MIS2000 and can be printed or saved if desired. 

Custom state security agreements

As states have begun to adopt more coordinated efforts to secure their online systems, we've added support in MIS2000 for every web user to periodically be shown a security agreement customized for each state. States can control how often users see the agreement and users are not allowed to go forward into any of the system functionality until they've agreed to it. So far only a couple of states have begun to use this part of the system, but I think it will become increasingly important in the future. Here's an example of what Arkansas' looks like:

Pop-up definitions for Services

Now that many states are allowing service providers to enter their services directly via the MIS2000 Web App, it's more important than ever for them to be able to have access to clear definitions for the kind of service in the drop down. Several MIS2000 states now have the ability to enter their own definition text to be shown in a flyover whenever a web user hovers the mouse over a particular service. Here's what it looks like:

Maine adds Service Plans to their MIS2000 Web App

Maine has been driving a lot of key development of the MIS2000 Web App for years now. Like many MIS2000 states, they've been keeping track of services through the web app, both by having MEP staff enter them and by having service providers enter them directly. We've made some pretty significant tweaks to their system recently that I'd like to describe a bit.
