Release 11 – December 4, 2022

New Features and Enhancements

CAS Application Enhancements

Liaison’s suite of portals work together to help you collect and manage applications. The CAS application, also referred to as the Applicant Portal, is the system where applicants find and apply to your programs. You receive these applications in WebAdMIT or Liaison Outcomes, where you perform your review processes. The appearance of your program and your requirements are customized in the Configuration Portal, where you establish the program-specific elements that your applicants will interact with. Additionally, your program may use one or more of the following tools and platforms:

  • Analytics by Liaison and Othot: advanced analytics solutions and data reporting tools.
  • API: a data integration tool.
  • Applicant Gateway: a platform for applicants who have already submitted their CAS application to complete and upload additional materials requested by their programs.
  • Enrollment Marketing and TargetX: customer relationship management (CRM) systems for student lifecycle management.
  • Letters by Liaison: a platform for evaluators to submit their letters of recommendation.
  • SlideRoom: a platform for collecting digital portfolios.
  • Time2Track: a platform for tracking, verifying, and managing experiences.
    AP Exam Code Field

This enhancement is automatically available for use by all CASs and participating programs that use the official AP integration. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. Contact your Account Manager for more information.

You can now access the AP Exam Code field, which corresponds to the AP exam title. This enhancement allows you to identify exam scores in your Student Information System via a code.


You can access the examCode property in the application JSON: "academicHistory" -> "tests" -> "official" -> "AP" -> "examCode". Additionally, you can extract the examCodeValue property, which corresponds to the AP exam title.


You can access the AP Exam Code field under the Official AP field grouping in the List Manager and Export Manager.

CAS API Enhancements

The following enhancements are now available in the CAS API. All enhancements are automatically available to all CASs and participating programs using the CAS API. No action is required on the part of any association, school, or program. If you have any questions about these features, contact your Account Manager or support.

    Official IELTS Scores Available in GET Application Response

You can now access official IELTS scores in the GET Application response.

    Best Practice for CAS API to Slate Integration Subscriptions

If you use one source format in Slate to import applicant data at multiple stages, be aware that Slate sweeps the SFTP for new files to import every 15 minutes. As a result, if the CAS API sends multiple files to the SFTP between Slate's sweeps, files may periodically be imported out of order.

We recommend that you either:

  • Change the SFTP Path Template in your subscription to be the same across all data subscription events. Then, if multiple files are sent to the Slate SFTP between pickups, the most recent file sent from the CAS API will replace the previous file, ensuring that the most up-to-date data is imported. You can use the following path template for data business events (note that you do not need to change document subscription events):

[ENTER CAS NAME HERE]_<instanceId>_<organizationId>_<programId>_<applicationId>_<casApplicantId>.csv

  • Create a query to identify records that may have been imported out of order. For example, you can search for applications with a submitted date that also have an In Progress application status. Once you identify the applicant record, then you can search for the submitted file in the source format and retroactively refresh that file.
