Terra Dotta Study Abroad's Printable Application feature allows admins to print applications whenever a hard copy is needed. Customizable print views allow the admin to control which application elements appear in the printed copy.
Note: This article references the Printable Applications feature within Study Abroad's admin console. This feature is not available in the classic administrative view.
This article covers the following topics:
In order to use the print applications the admin must have the following permissions:
- Applicant search (simple)
- Applicant search (advanced)
- Application admin: overview
Note: In order for the admin to print all application data, they must have permission to view that data. If the admin is restricted from seeing a certain application element, the printed application will not show that data. To learn more about restrictions and visibility, check out the following article: Study Abroad: User Management
Study Abroad's printable application feature leverages Reviewer Role functionality to create print views. To create printable views, the admin needs the ability to create Reviewer Roles. To create and add roles, the following permissions are needed:
- Staff Admin: Staff Permission (edit)
- Staff Admin: Staff (add)
- Staff admin: workflow (view)
In addition to this, the admin needs permission to see any viewable elements they would like to add. For example, in order to add a questionnaire, assessment, learning content, material, or signature document to the printable view, the user must have the following permissions:
- Process admin: questionnaires (view)
- Process admin: assessments (view)
- Process admin: materials (view)
- Process admin: learning content (view)
Once the initial setup is complete, printing an application is just a few quick clicks. Starting from the Admin Console > Application Finder search for and open the application you wish you print.
From the admin view, select the kebab menu in the top right of the application:
From the dropdown, hover over Print View to select which pre-configured view you would like to print.
Note: You will need to configure print views before you can print.
Once clicking on your desired print view, a new tab will open displaying your printable application:
Standard options, such as the applicant's name, program name, application cycle, and program location will appear in the top section of the page, followed by the configured applicant parameters.
The second section displays the configured application requirements. Responses to questionnaires will be displayed. To the right, a count indicates if the configured assessments, learning Content, materials, and signature documents are complete or outstanding:
Note: At this time, the names of assessments, learning content, materials, and signature documents are not displayed in the printable view. To print a signature document, along with the name of the signatory, date of signature, and the IP address of the signatory, the admin will need to take a screenshot of the signature document modal, which can be accessed by clicking on submitted signature documents within the Admin Console's admin view of applications.
The names of attached documents, as well as program parameters, will appear at the bottom of the print view in the Attached Documents and Program Information sections.
