Kuali Ready Admin Newsletter- April 2017

Welcome to the Kuali Ready Admin Newsletter. This newsletter will keep you informed of product updates and community news and events.


Community News


We will be moving our support system from Freshdesk to Zendesk in May. You should have already received an email to confirm a primary contact and provide a secondary. If you have not yet responded, please do so. You will receive a second message with additional details once we are ready to migrate.



Our next webinar will be presented by Laurent (Gunter) Mink of East Carolina University on May 11th. She will be talking about her preparation and response to Hurricane Matthew on ECU's campus. Look for your invitation soon!


Net Promoter Score

We recently sent out a survey to determine a starting point for Ready customer satisfaction. We will be sending this out quarterly going forward. Thanks to all that participated. I greatly appreciate your comments (positive and constructive).

Product Updates

Schedule/Batch PDF Download

Did you know you could regularly schedule downloads of your plans to be stored in the system? Check out the PDF Batch Schedule feature within the Admin screens. Select your plan(s) and the frequency of the batch to have copies of your plans stored at the interval that meets your needs.

We have recently updated the scheduler to batch plans into smaller sized zip files. You can access those files by going to the view downloads link. The Adminstrator's Guide has been updated with additional information for your convenience.
