The April 2022 release focuses on several features and enhancements including:
- A new Financial Admin Role to provide better control over Financial settings.
- New functionality for managing Financial settings for Home Institutions.
Financial Admin Role
The Financial Admin role is a new role within Course Share. Users that are assigned the Financial Admin role will have access to manage the Financial settings for the institution.
Financial Settings for Home Institutions
Home Institutions can now configure their payment settings within Course Share. This new functionality includes managing both ACH and Credit Card settings
Institutions that have an ACH-enabled bank account must provide that account for Acadeum to use for billing purposes. These institutions are also encouraged to provide a credit card as a backup method of payment. ACH accounts will be used for all charges that support ACH as a method of payment. Credit card will be used for any other payments that do not support ACH (e.g., international payments).
Institutions that do not have ACH-enabled accounts must provide a credit card as their primary method of payment.
Public Pages for Consortia, Institutions, and Courses
The new public pages enable non-authenticated users to browse information related to consortia, institutions, and courses. These public pages allow visitors to view Acadeum offerings prior to logon making it easier to see the wide variety of institutions and courses we offer.
Last Updated Date for Authentication Settings
We’ve added a last updated date to the Authentication Settings to provide better visibility into when these settings are updated.
Update allowed values in Status field on Degree Request API/SFTP
Updated the allowed values for the Status field on Degree Request API/SFTP to include Duplicate. This allows institutions to indicate that they already have this lead from another source.
We have released several updates that address accessibility bugs.
