PowerPro 2021 - Build Release 7

 

ASQA Delivery Activity Data Summary report, Course Admin Checklist, locking of Booking Status, flagging of Imported Units and more

 

Delivery Activity Data Summary

Often requested by the National VET regulator, this report can now be found in the Compliance Reports menu:


 
 
Once open, the report can be exported in multiple formats:


 

Course Admin checklist

This new Course section helps tracking logistic tasks associated with the delivery of each Course. Note that this structure is propagated to the new Course when a Course is cloned.



Locking of Booking Status

Until build 7 it was possible to change a "Confirmed" booking () to a Cancelled one () regardless of the Client progress in the Course. This could be problematic since only confirmed bookings are reported to AVETMISS and, as we know, the AVETMISS data is propagated to the Student USI Transcripts.

As of 2021 build 7, the Booking Status field becomes locked (greyed out) as soon as the enrolment denotes any training activity:

 
.

Course "imported" Units

Many packaging rules allow for one or two "imported" units as electives. Build 7 provides support for flagging specific (Course) units as imported. To set a Course Unit as imported, use the following action sequence:
 
Home>Accredited Courses>[double-click]>Imported Unit
 


 
The imported units also show on the Enrolments and results area so users can get a visual alert if there are too many imported units for an enrolment:

Lots of goodies with this one!   AVETMISS 2020 reporting wrap up We have successfully overseen another year of annual AVETMISS submissions! It was great to see more and more RTOs reporting well before the due date. As 2021 rolls along, why not check if your organisation can implement quarterly AVETMISS reporting. Avoid the stress by reporting early, pick up on any data errors/issues months earlier and have your Students USI Transcripts more regular updated.
