Mass Audit Trail Admin Tool
Have you ever been working on an Audit process and wanted to update all syllabi at a particular stage "in one sweep?" The Mass Audit Trail Admin Tool is an enhancement to Concourse's auditing capabilities and allows Domain auditors to do just that!
Just as a review before delving into Mass Audit, here is what Concourse has continually offered for an Audit toolset:
- Syllabus-Level Audit: Anyone with syllabus editing rights and Domain Auditors can access Audit and update the Audit Trail and Status messaging. They can also notify other editors and Domain Auditors of any changes via email. For more information on the stages and how to take advantage of the Audit process, refer to our Concourse Audit article.
- Audit Report: Audit report showcases the audit status of a selected number of courses that are going through the audit process. The report shows the progress of syllabi review and displays which courses are New, In Progress, Submitted for Review, Reviewed, or Modified Since Review. An audit report can be generated by users who have Audit or Reporting domain permissions and will only include courses that fall within said domains (campus, school, and/or department). For more information on how to run an Audit Report, see our Creating an Audit Report article.
Now, we've been working on enhancing this already powerful toolset within our platform which is how we arrived at Mass Audit. Mass Audit is an Administrator tool designed for Domain Auditors that will allow auditors to update the trails of multiple syllabi at once. That means Concourse auditors will no longer need to enter every syllabus to update a trail. For example, if you are using Audit for faculty compliance, run an audit report, and notice that half of your semester's syllabi are still "new" despite an approaching deadline, you can go to the new Mass Audit tool and blast out a message on the Audit Trail and optionally email other Auditors and Editors on the impacted syllabi that work still needs to be completed before the communicated deadline. That's just one use case for Mass Audit. If you'd like to explore how to use Mass Audit, you can refer to our tutorial, Mass Audit Trail Updates
