OFIS Notes from 06 May, 2010

Past CS tasks

  • Daniel:
    • imported CS data to live (as Marlon was about to flush dev system).
    • added the two users from Math to live system.
    • gave Noki a copy of a prof's NSERC form 100 data as requested, for him to use as template.
    • Prepping for profs using OFIS to make their research book. (June?)


  • Priorities for term:
  • vu: excel contribution import in-process. in production: contribution clarification/updates; new priv system; UTF8 db.
    • wants to revise research search tool this term. IQC wants to search as well. (meeting next week).
  • Daniel: data accuracy; import from bibtex debugged.
    • missing grad students should be flagged as errors?... gov't count date -> missing people; not something we can do much about.
  • Marlon: Audrey Slavoda - data error table modifications ; HR import bug? ; Office of Research import (to follow) ; GSO/IST (Derrick Kirkland): want prototype end of May, full test end of June, after gov't count date; Quest: emplid not UW userid, OK; but can't get dept'id/name.;
    • reporting errors : GSO are frustrated about how profs report...
      • GSO need Department liason to correct. ... could we get master list of dept liaisons to auto-email the error to them? would need it up to date...
        • Beth / Alan George about duplicate data-entry from forms within faculties. sources of errors to GSO- low-hanging fruit. may have a grad student doing pilot project on this.
      • GSO doesn't currently create last-updated field?! So do we need 'last five years data'; office of research same boat, likely. (or... could we get OFIS updated by them directly?)
      • IAP might push data to OFIS?... leaves, appointment, employment history tables in OFIS? by end of summer.
  • Engr webpages... Vu's project. will discuss.
  • Contribution sub-report for NSERC, also on the list
  • Beth going on sabbatical but is continuing for OFIS project.
  • can we remove the expanded edit fields for contributions? no, but can hide them behind a button...
    • also hide the co-contributors?... yes. Vu will do.
  • prod-> replace dev tomorrow.

Upcoming Tasks:

  • Daniel will fix CS Research Book code for order of display
