Spring is almost here, and so is the enrollment season for many of our client schools! We’ve developed a few new features designed to improve the parent experience! Outlined below are the highlights of this month’s new feature enhancements.

Parent User Tutorials

Integration Improvements

–The nightly Senior Systems Web Services sync feature has been updated to include additional Parent 1(P1) and Parent 2 (P2) demographic information that was previously omitted.

Additional Immunization Compliance Reporting

–Is your school using the ImmsLink functionality? Additional compliance reports are now available! This release includes reporting for Magnus clients in Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, and Washington who have implemented the immunization sync feature.

As with every release, Magnus has resolved numerous bugs that will continue to improve your experience.

We hope you enjoy the new feature enhancements listed above along with the various bug fixes throughout Magnus!

Addition of the Preferred Name Field & Expansion of Middle Name Field

  • Within your Vital Health Record (VHR) Settings, under the Admin Dashboard, you will now be able to activate two new fields for the student name: the new Preferred Name field and the newly expanded Middle Name Field. Previously, when inputting a student’s middle name, users could only fill in a middle initial, but now you can spell out the full middle name.

Ability to Lock Student Names in the Parent Portal

  • Many of you have experienced issues where parents mistakenly fill in their own name in the student name fields. You will now be able to lock the First and Last Name fields for a student within the Vital Health Record (VHR) Settings of your Admin Dashboard.

Update to Visit Log

  • You will now be able to see the Check-In, Start Time, and End Time of all student visits directly on the Visit Log list.

Users without Student Medical Record Access in their User Permissions will no longer see a hyperlinked to a student’s name in the visit log/check-in screen.

 

October 2017 Updates

New Visit Log Feature & Improved Check-In!

If your school is using the Check-In feature you can keep better track of who is in your Health, Athletic, and/or Counseling office by filtering between three different statuses for your student visits. The Check-In Screen will now show all students who have been in your office within the last 24 hours, making this not only a Check-In feature but also a visit log for your office. Navigate to Draft Notes, Completed Notes, or the Student Medical Record directly from the Visit Log with a single click! To see more about the statuses Magnus will use within this feature, see below!

Waiting Status
The student has checked in, but documentation has not yet started in any way.
In Progress Status
A note has been started, and it is still being worked on by the person who accepted the visit or has been “Saved for Later.”
Completed Status
A note was submitted for the student. Documentation is complete.

August 2017 Updates

We are very excited to announce that the main focus of the August 30th release is the increased site speed for Magnus! Historically, reviewing Vital Health Records has taken a lot of your time, and the loading times for those pages have been slower than desired. But, this release will improve all of that! Our team has made a small external change, but MAJOR internal changes to the Magnus system. Here are the changes that you will notice with the Wednesday release:

See Screenshot

You will now have the ability to expand/collapse each section of the Vital Health Record while reviewing requirements. This will allow you to click on each section with minimal scrolling. There is also an option to ‘Expand or Collapse All’, if you prefer to see all sections at once.

Behind the scenes, we’ve improved the loading time of the VHR sections that has increased the system’s speed exponentially. In certain cases, we’ve seen loading times decrease by up to 80%!
