4 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 4 Terminology Colleague – CPCCs College Information System. Datatel – The company that created Colleague. WebAdvisor – The web component of Colleague. User Interface (UI) – The non-web component of Colleague. This consists of screens that are accessed by a Mnemonic. Mnemonic – Usually a 4-letter code (sometimes 3-letter) that is keyed into the Mnemonic or Quick Access box at the top of the Colleague UI screen. Closed class – A class that is filled. Petition for course – A class that requires a signature. Synonym – Phone Code. Synonym – Phone Code.

5 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 5 Records Lock Records Lock occurs when two people are trying to look at the same record at the same time. A user has retrieved Colleague ID As long as this record is pulled up, it is locked. If another user attempts to retrieve the same record, they will get the following message.

6 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 6 Records Lock - continued If this record remains locked for several minutes, then the person who has is locked needs to be contacted. To find out who has it locked, use XLOC. Log into the live account, and enter XLOC as the Mnemonic. Click GO.

7 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 7 Records Lock - continued The screen seen below will appear. In this example, Colleague ID is locked. Look for this ID, and you will see who has it locked. This person needs to be contacted, to alert them to the fact that they have a record pulled up in Colleague, and others need access to it. Make sure that you are looking at the correct entry on XLOC. Be sure, as in this example, that the Person file Key that is displayed in the Alert box matches what is displayed in the XLOC display screen. A big Plus for WebAdvisor – with WebAdvisor, records lock dosent occur. Once a record is pulled into WebAdvisor, it is released.

11 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 11 Messages, Restrictions and Rules – continued RESTRICTIONS & RULES - In Colleague, restrictions equate to administrative holds and can be applied for many reasons.

14 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 14 Scripts Every so often, users will encounter problems when they log-in. Mostly, this is due to their scripts in their computer need refreshing. At various times, the Colleague system must be updated due to changes or corrections in the system. These go in as patches. As a result of these patches, scripts must be refreshed. Sometimes a user will receive a message in effect telling them this. All they have to do is click OK, and the system does the rest. However, sometimes, they will receive the message Never found the UNIX Prompt. When this happens, the user must have the scripts pushed-out to their machine. This is handled by the IT department. When scripts are being refreshed, this screen will appear. And once scripts are refreshed, the Datatel application must be restarted. Now the user should be able to log on successfully.

15 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 15 Colleague Applications Colleague has a variety of applications. Occasionally, when a user receives a new computer, or if their computer has to be re-imaged or some other maintenance is performed, as a result, the user may not be in their normal application when they log in. If a user calls in stating they cannot pull up a screen that they normally use, it could be the result of being in the wrong application.

16 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 16 Colleague Applications - continued Click on Apps, and then click on the proper application. In this instance, for the ADSU mnemonic, this is a Student mnemonic, so it is under the ST application.

17 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 17 Colleague Applications - continued Now that the user is under the proper application, they should be able to access the needed mnemonic with no problem. If the user is still receiving an Invalid Selection alert, this could indicate their Colleague security will not allow them access to this screen.

18 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 18 Data Entry Terms – CU vs. CE and BSP Users will have to be careful when entering terms in Colleague. Colleague terms require a 4-digit year, followed by a code for the term. CU terms are indicated differently than CE/BSP. Example: For the 2006 Calendar Year For Curriculum 2006SP – Spring SU – Summer FA – Fall 2006 For Continuing Education/Basic Skills 2006CE1 – Spring CE2 – Summer CE3 – Fall 2006

19 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 19 Data Entry Terms – CU vs. CE and BSP - continued When looking up courses, the user needs to be aware if the course is curriculum, continuing education or basic skills. If the wrong term is entered, the system will not be able to locate the course/section. In the example to the right, 2006SU is entered as the term to look-up the basic skills course ABE The result is the alert box below.

20 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 20 Data Entry Terms – CU vs. CE and BSP - continued Now, with the correct term entered, the system is able to locate the course/section.

21 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 21 Data Entry Entry of Prefix and Course Number In Colleague a dash – or a space must be entered between the course prefix & course number. 2006SP CIS110 will not be recognized in the system. However, 2006SP CIS 110 is recognized in the system.

22 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 22 Data Entry Multi-valued fields Colleague has single-valued, and multi-valued fields - multi-valued meaning that this same field can contain more than one value. In the Type field, Home/Permanent is about to be selected as the 1 st entry in this multi- valued field. Notice the 1 beside the Type label. Once it is selected… …notice the number beside the Type label. It is now 2, but the text box is empty. The value Home/Permanent is stored in the 1 st entry of the Type field. Sometimes, user think their entry is not in the field. Colleague automatically moves up to the next empty entry.To view it, click on the arrow buttons beside the field. When the upper arrow is clicked, the system takes you back to the 1 st entry. The 1 is now beside the Type label, and an H is in the field, showing that the Home/Permanent entry is in the 1 st occurrence of this field.

23 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 23 Help on Help Colleague offers help, not only from using the red question mark, but also from the menu toolbar at the top of the screen. Field help works exactly the same way as the red question mark. When you select a field, and then select Field Help, the system gives help on that particular field.

24 June, 2006 Basic Troubleshooting Issues in Colleague 24 Help on Help Function Help lists short-cut function keys.
