Known Issues

Expand All

In some cases, peoples' titles may not show correctly in Graduate Supervision Reporting.

System area:
Supervision Reporting: dashboards.

The source of this data can be amended by your local HR person or team.

This issue will affect Course Directors and DGSs with more than 100 contacts. On saving and submitting a report from the dashboard, there is an option to continue to the next report in the list, without returning to dashboard. Using this function, when you reach the final report on the page, the only option is to return to dashboard, there is no option to move forward to the next report on the subsequent page.

System area:
Supervision Reporting: dashboards. 

When you have reached the end of the list of records on the page, you will need to return to the dashboard in order to continue. 

If GSR access for a subject administrator, Course Director or DGS is made historic, the corresponding section still appears in GSR and related functionality may or may not work, depending on the user's other access in GSR.

System area:
Supervision Reporting: manage user access.

The Student Systems Support Centre will be able to update this.

When re-enabling access for a user, no automated email notification is sent to the user them telling them they have been given access.

Supervision Reporting: manage user access.

The workaround is currently to tell the user by sending a manual email.
