New characters not permitted in rostering

Blog Post created by Product Update on Nov 7, 2018

In an effort to enhance security, the following characters are no longer permitted in name fields in roster fields such as Student Last Name, Student First Name, Instructor Last Name, and Instructor First Name: >, <, = $.

 

A new NWEA roster file template will be available to reflect which characters are prohibited for each field. The new restrictions will be applied when importing a roster, creating new Student or User Profile, and when modifying existing Student or User Profiles.
