Mentor Management

Mentorship programs are key programs for many organizations. The Mentor Management suite of RiSE content types addresses these requirements and writes all information back to standard iMIS using supported APIs. The Mentor Request plug-in allows those seeking guidance in your community to submit their resume, top areas of support request and other information tailored to your industry. The Mentor Volunteer plug-in is used by would-be mentors to submit their willingness to volunteer along with their area of expertise. Everything is tied together with the Mentor Match plug-in. Mentors and Mentor Requests can be independently searched and matched based on mutual areas of interest. The Mentor Match Process is configurable to be utilized by public users. Once matched for the designated time frame, either participant can request a new match and this information is recorded with comments. Additional comment fields are available to document outcomes. All information is written to standard iMIS Activity and Demographic Modules.

Article Management

This suite of upgradeable plug-ins are designed to give RiSE customers a submission to published content process for generating system Articles. You can allow your membership or any designated group access to submit articles as physical files with full description and category definition. Multiple authors can be added to any submission and written as an Article Activity. Designated staff or specified group may review, modify and approve the article. Articles are then added as content in the content management system as articles that use the Article Author display set to the submission id of the corresponding Article submission. After publishing the article, the URL of the final published location is added back to the submission activity and final “published” status is applied. Now you have all of your article submissions written as activities to each author’s record. All of your article content in your RiSE system can now be searched both with IQA or the RiSE CMS search. Implementation includes complete IA tagging, folder structure, template layout construction and iMIS activity/demographic module setup.

Multiple authors can be added based on your filtering criteria and each will receive an Alert Activity. Designated staff or other user group may then approve or reject submissions.

Credentials Retrieval

One of the biggest challenges for organizations is making it as easy for your customers to find and reset their account without compromising security. The Credentials Retrieval (CR) plug-in was created exclusively for the iMIS RiSE system to assist in matching users to existing accounts to help with customer satisfaction, greatly reduce duplicate records and minimize support calls. Replacing the standard “forgot password” process, users will be challenged to provide 4-6 pieces of information that only they should know. These values can be determined by your organization but email will always be present. If all of the information matches one or more records, these are shown to the user with enough details so they can select the correct one. Once selected, if the account is missing an email, a new one must be entered and it is verified. The next step is to determine if they have RiSE credentials setup, if not, their email is used as the default login when unique and the user may create their RiSE system credentials. In the case some information is not entered correctly but the email is recognized, an option is provided to send a link to reset password to that email. Finally, if there is no use match found, the option to create an account with standard RiSE tools is made available to the user.

The Volunteer Submission plug-in is configured to allow designated users to provide personal information including resume file and choose their top committee choices to volunteer their time. The Volunteer Match plug-in is where staff or designated users can match volunteers to iMIS committees based on preferences. Additional comments can be added by the matching users to document the process. Those designated as unqualified may be flagged as such.
