Alumni.duke.edu update 1.2.0

Update 1.2.0 applied to alumni.duke.edu on 12/20/2016. This was deployed a day early in preparation for a database upgrade in the testing environment on Wednesday, 12/21/2016.

 

  • The goal of this sprint was to fix education. This required an import of all education records. Education is now much faster and more accurate. 
    • Converted education information to entities in Drupal to clean up issues we've been seeing and speed up the import process for educations.
    • Updated modules that was related to education so it matches the new Duke education entity references.
  • Clarified deceased alumni in the search results. Users were getting confused in the search display so we have added a "include deceased" checkbox to the search facets and displayed "Deceased" under the deceased alumni name.

 

  • Implemented the first iteration of the new Career Coaching page by creating a content type. This allows the career coaches information to be stored, connected to their profile and viewed in a summarized format rather than displaying all of their information at once on this page.

    • Tag functionality was implemented and can be assigned to each career coach so a user can easily sort by different client stages, coach specialties, professional training/certifications and regions.

  • Added a Search view for Employee and Friend roles.
  • A feedback survey was added to the Search People page since it has been rebuilt. It displays after a user has searched for 30 seconds and will display again to the user after 5 weeks. With the survey, we are able to gather NPS scores, comments, location and EIDs.

  • Fix to duplicated children occurring on the profile.
