  • Adjustable Sort Order on Charts: On many Dashboard charts (e.g., Pie, Bar, Heatmap) you can adjust how the items are sorted by selecting an option in the Sort dropdown.

    Calculated Fields Available in Contact Records

You can now add Calculated Fields when configuring Contact Types. This allows you to set up various customized data points for your Contacts. For example, you can calculate a score for potential applicants, like an engagement rating or a formula that incorporates their test scores, location, or other attributes. You can add a Number Calculated Field and use JavaScript expression to incorporate your formula. You can also use a Yes/No Calculated Field to determine a potential applicant's eligibility for certain things. E.g., whether they are a resident or non-resident.

Adding Calculated Property to Contact

New Contact-related Permitted Actions are available when configuring Roles. They include:

  • Manage Contact Type: Enables the ability to add, remove, or modify Contact Types.
  • Manage Contact Calculated Fields: Enables the ability to add, remove, or modify Calculated Fields when configuring Contact Types.

Unify Responses from Different Questions to Appear in a Single Field If you've created custom program-level questions for your applicants, there may be some instances where separate questions are used to collect the same information. For example, you may have several programs where you ask the applicants about their desired start term. Since you're using program-level questions, the responses are stored in separate fields. This configuration allows you to combine responses to these custom questions into a single field in Admissions by Liaison.
