June: Cohort Management
- What we talked about: Introduced the idea that a student cohort represents specific groups of students used to assign Advisors, and for transactional purposes, and to apply special attributes in UR Student.
- What we did: Viewed how to find student cohorts, create cohort types, create cohorts, add and remove students to cohorts, and view a student’s cohort history. We looked at student cohorts from both the administrator view and the student view. use assign students to an advisor and how to see changes in a student’s cohort history.
- What you can do: Watch one of the event videos recorded at the Medical Center Eastman School of Music or River Campus.

What We Are Doing
Phase 1 Timeline shows we are finishing our Configuration and Prototype phase and beginning the preparation for the testing phase of the project. The Configure & Prototype phase is the time in the project where we get to create builds in Workday’s software environment for prototyping (AKA “tenants”) to see how various aspects of the system (e.g. Student Records and Student Finance, and Advising) work with U of R specific configuration and data plugged in. Among others, our functional leads get to run through typical scenarios that faculty, staff, and students will want to use at launch next summer.
