New Features and Enhancements

Admissions by Liaison Enhancements

The following enhancements are now available in Admissions by Liaison. All enhancements are automatically available to all CASs and participating programs using Admissions by Liaison. 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.

    Manual Changes to Application Data Allowed

By default, when working with a CAS, Admissions by Liaison overwrites its existing application data upon importing updated application data. With this enhancement, sections of the application can be locked to prevent overwritten data. This allows you to make manual changes to things like test scores, citizenship information, or contact information without having your edits overwritten by updated information from CAS.


After locking a section of the application, you can choose to allow updates again by clicking the lock icon.


    Search Application History Log

The History panel on applications in Admissions by Liaison now offers a search bar. This allows you to search the events to quickly find what you're looking for.


    Ranges Now Available in Translation Tables

Translation Tables in Admissions by Liaison allow you to convert the value in a field to another corresponding value. For example, the full name of a country can be converted into a country code. This is useful for importing data into another system that requires a specific format. Now, you can enter a range of numbers to be converted into another value. For example, any value between 1 and 10 will be converted to a 1, and any value between 11 and 20 will be converted to a 2, etc. You can also combine this with functions to create advanced scoring fields.


    Stage Templates Can Be Used to Quickly Configure Post-submission Requirements

When configuring programs in Admissions by Liaison, you can establish Application Stages for applicants to progress through after they've submitted their application. Application Stages are periods of an application process where you can configure different Checklists, or a series of requirements that applicants must complete before they can move to the next stage. Now, you can build Stage Templates that allow you to pre-configure your Checklists. Stage Templates can be selected while configuring programs to quickly apply your desired settings. They also can be set to automatically apply to new Programs.


    SFTP Now Available for Scheduled Contact Imports

You can add Contacts to Admissions by Liaison using several methods. With this enhancement, you can use SFTP to import them on a set schedule. Use the Contact Data Sources page to configure this integration.


New Documentation

Please review the list of new reference guides, all accessible in the Admissions by Liaison Help Center.



Display College Transcripts Not Received

We are building an Advanced Configuration Library for Admissions by Liaison. This library provides guidance to help you build custom configurations in the software. As it is built out, you'll find more options that you can implement to enhance the way Admissions data is presented, exported, or filtered.

This configuration allows you to build three different fields that indicate if transcripts are missing, how many are missing, and from which schools they are pending, respectively.

Display Letters of Recommendation Not Received Similar to the advanced configuration described above, this configuration allows you to build two fields that display the number of missing LORs (letters of recommendation) and the names of pending recommenders, respectively.
