March 2016

  1. Activity Reports and filters for Impact Statements have been refined and the calculations for Outcomes updated. These changes will result in greater accuracy of the reporting system in SUPER. 
  2. Minor details in Civil Rights, Profile pictures, and State Action Agendas have been upgraded. 
  3. We have updated the software to the latest version of .Net the programming language in which SUPER is written. This will allow greater flexibility for future upgrades. There is a known problem with Microsoft Internet Explorer in displaying a vita from the My Vita and Appraisal. This does not affect all people with Internet Explorer but those who are affected may get a message that says “Name_Vita.doc couldn’t be downloaded. If you get his error just click the Retry button and the vita will then open. An alternative would be to use another browser like Firefox.

  5. Training/Registration - Instructor Association with Event/Sub event. Individual instructors can be added to an event. Each instructor will be added individually and will get credit for instructing on the Training/Registration dashboard, on the vita and on the appraisal.

February 2015

  1. In Delivery. Social Media is now listed as an Indirect Method. The definition of Social Media for reporting purposes is: “Social media contacts are counted as the number of posts to the number of followers, friends, people in network, etc.” For example, if I do a once a month post to Facebook and I have 100 friends would report the Number of Indirect Methods to be 12 and the Number of Contacts Reached to be 1200.
  2. In Training/Registration. a. All events needing approval are now visible on the approvers dashboard. The approver will no longer have to change the date in the dropdown to find the year for the event needing approval. b. A location was added to individual sub-events. This will be helpful for events that have rooms associate with the sub-event. c. Events not attended are now filtered in Appraisal and Vita builder, in Profile > Professional Development and on the Training/Registration Dashboard under Courses Attended. The facilitator of the course will have to have checked the Attended box on the Participants tab of the Event for each individual in order for it to show.
  3. Unit Operations – Budget. a. The county director can manage the people on his/her budget directly from the Edit Salaries tab. If a person comes into the county who is not currently on the budget, they can be added by opening the Edit Salaries tab and checking the box in front of their name. If they are a transfer from another county the person would have to be unchecked from the old county before they can be added to the new county. b. Social Security and Medicare for those who do not have a retirement plan will now be visible on the benefits tab. c. Benefits for 401k, Workers Compensation and Unemployment are now editable.
