This list includes both key activities and major functionality released through LionPATH. This list will be updated and expanded as activities and functionality continue to be released. Dates on this list are subject to change.
|Ongoing||Batch Job Scheduling and Enhancement Releases||The LionPATH Development and Maintenance Office (LDMO) is working with key functional offices to plan any changes to batch job scheduling that may have been interrupted because LionPATH was offline.
The LDMO has frozen the release of enhancements to the system from October 5 through December 7 because of the extensive testing to an upgraded version of LionPATH. During the freeze period, the LDMO will continue to develop and test enhancements. It is only the release of enhancements that will be frozen until December 7. Any need for emergency fixes will still occur. Query migrations will also occur as usual. Regular bi-weekly enhancement releases will resume on December 7.
|Ongoing||Top Ten Time-Consuming Processes||The LionPATH Executive Committee charged us to gather feedback from system users, describing tasks that they consider to be overly manual, time-consuming, or otherwise painful.
After reviewing and categorizing more than 200 submissions, we identified the "Top Ten" most-cited themes. The Executive and Governance Committees, along with the LDMO staff, are focused on delivering improvements that relate to the Top Ten.
The Top Ten list with a short description/explanation and a status update is available to view.
A complete list of the submissions is also available to view.
We are also actively working on the following set of items that currently have no confirmed release date:
- Academic renewal
- Certificate approval enabled in LionPATH
