The group reviewed procedures for placing diploma holds. All members were on target to meet the May 5th deadline for submission to Student Financial Services. Barry reported that he had discussed with Chris Sterback the groupís desire to work with one report that would cross index the Diploma Officeís list of new graduates with currently barred users in WorkFlows. This would save on the time-consuming strain of bouncing the eyes from one single-spaced report to another to find users who need to be placed on diploma hold. Chris understands that an improvement here would be helpful and will investigate.
Barry distributed the functional group mid-year report, which described the groupís success in meeting four goals: 1) Cleanup all academic holds from pre-GEAC period, extending back to the 1970ís; 2) Make Knight Express debit payment option available for users at Alexander Library; 3) Allow credit card payment for any fines or bills by preparing miscellaneous bills for users to take to the Cashierís Office; and 4) Examine, test, and make proposals for the new WorkFlows billing module
Antoinette and Barry reported on their activities with the Billing Working Group. This group is examining how reports may be used to create bills for long overdue materials and move them into an ďassumed lostĒ status that will enable the books to be withdrawn while still maintaining a record of responsibility for the user. This group is working also on text for new notices.
