To further assist districts with state compliance, beginning 7/15/2019, document validation errors will display for all districts when a user attempts to mark a document complete that has unresolved validation errors. A dialogue will appear indicating the document, number of errors, and expandable list of error descriptions. For districts who have currently enabled validation, this is the same information that appears on the “Check” tab inside of documents.
All administrative users will have the ability to override this warning and complete documents with errors on a document-by-document basis as needed after entering a reason. Additionally, administrative users may also enable a district-level setting to allow non-administrative users to complete documents with errors on a document-by-document basis.
Document validation rules include checks for compliance, completeness and consistency. When a document is completed with errors, this document may not appear in district administrative reports or EMIS extracts. While completing a document with errors may be required in exceptional cases, we encourage districts to complete documents with errors thoughtfully and sparingly.
When the district-level setting is enabled, an additional button will appear in the dialogue box for non-administrative users which states “Mark complete with errors” along with a request for the reason the document with unresolved validation errors needs to be marked as complete.
