Content improvements for the Provider Support Manual

The BETA publication of the Provider Support Manual uses existing material from the source PDF. As part of the continuous improvement, for ESFA online documentation (EOD), content is being updated, and new material added, to improve search functionality and maintain its relevancy.

Recent content updates focus on search relevance where acronyms can be used as search terms. For example, searching for ACT or TNP will list articles from the support manual where the terms are located.

New or updated indicator

Develop status indicator functionality to highight new or updated content on the ILR portal page.

Download CSV file code lists

To provide the ability to download CSV files of codes and associated values.

Validation rule error messages

Feedback from previous research has indicated the need for a more accessible and easier to query format for the error messages received as part of learner data submission.

The team will investigate the use and format of these rules, and the relationship between validation rule, error message and ILR field.

Integrating the validation rules with the ILR

Feedback from previous research has shown difficulty in understanding some of the more complex validation rules and the need for a more accessible presentation approach.

The team will investigate the use and format of these rules, and the relationship between validation rule, error message and ILR field.

Completed
