Release Notes

Release of a new Letter of Recommendation expiration setting, the beginning of our outbound communications, and a bug fix to review application UI.



Enhancements

  • [SU-576] - Letter of Recommendation Request Expiration Setting
    • We've added a new setting to control the amount of time before a letter of recommendation request expires. Students who have requested and set a deadline for the same day have experience issues where it was not enough time for the requestee to write a letter and get the expiration message. A new setting called "Letter of Recommendation Expiration (Days)" is found in Settings > Basic Settings and will allow you to set the max amount of days before a letter of recommendation request expires, from the time it was requested. If the student's deadline is set after the max amount of days, the application will honor the student's deadline.
      • For example, your school sets the Letter of Recommendation Expiration (Days) setting to 30 days
      • Student A requests a letter today, and sets the deadline to a week from now - the request will be available for the 30 days, rather than the 7 day deadline
      • Student B requests a letter today,and sets the deadline to two months from now - the request will be available for the two months, rather than the 30 day setting
  • [SU-428] - Hookup Confirmation Emails

Fixes

  • [SU-584] - Fix to Score Review Display
    • Fixed an issue where the score card input field on the application review no longer showed the value when the screen resolution forced the input field width to narrow. This issue did not effect the value - it was still found in the field, just did not display correctly. The input field now has a fixed width to prevent the issue from reoccurring.
