Agenda

The Academy Awards: Make your initial and revised award letters spiffy and useful (Part 2)

Track: Student Information System (SIS)

Session Number: 10944
Date: Mon, Mar 4th, 2024
Time: 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Description:

The information in your award letter is one of the major factors that determines whether a student decides to attend your institution. Help your Award letters win the Best Document award by making their appearance pop off the silver screen. Keep the noise down to a minimum during your screenings by making your revised award letters more comprehensive and informative, and see if you can snag Best Supporting Document!

This is the second session of the series. We'll develop queries that allow you to give the students a detailed look at what has changed on their award letters. We will show how to get only the changes since the last letter was sent to appear, point out what happened to the awards, and even give the reason the change was made (at least sometimes).

During the first part of our Awards presentation, we'll use BI publisher to make your award letters eye catching and fact filled. Utilizing some of the advanced capabilities that BI Publisher offers, including graphs, images, and fancy formatting, you can create letter that belong on the Red Carpet. It takes nothing more than the tools you're already using with CommGen - the BI Publisher tool, the preview button, and perhaps a little bit more patience.

These two sessions will together explore some of the ways that you can dress your CommGen creations up, and get them ready for the big stage! Combining the winner of the Best Visual Effects prize with the Best Data Design nominees, you're sure to be making your students see that you're worthy of Best Director!
