Batch Processing Transcripts
Create your batch source file by entering the UCID/EMPLID in an Excel document. The file should have no header row and all IDs should be in Column A, beginning with cell A1. Once all ID’s have been entered, the file must be saved as a CSV (Comma delimited) (*.csv) file.
In the Student Services Work Center, click on the Batch Transcript Request link under the Report Pages menu.
If you have a Run Control ID that you use for running other processes, select it by clicking Search in the Find an Existing Value tab. If you do not have a Run Control ID, click on the Add a New Value tab. Enter the run control ID you’d like to create (it can be your cNet, name, etc.) and click the Add button. You will be able to use this same Run Control ID the next time you pull a batch of transcripts. NOTE: Do not include any spaces in your Run Control ID or it will not work.On the Process Transcripts page, enter the following options in the top three drop-downs:
Academic Institution: The University of Chicago
Transcript Type: Unofficial
Process Action: Request, Generate and Print
In the Request Options section, enter the number of transcript copies needed. Note: If appropriate, you can click the Override Service Indicator box to ignore any transcript holds on records in your population. Otherwise, if a student has a transcript hold, their transcript will not print in the batch.
In the Population Selection section, click the Population Selection box and select External File in the Selection Tool drop-down.
If this is your first time running a batch, click the Upload File button, and use the browse option to find, attach, and upload your file. If you’ve run a batch before, the previous file you uploaded will still display. Click the Delete File button to the right of the Upload File button to remove the file. You can then proceed with Upload File and follow the steps below.
Click the magnifying glass in File Mapping field and select EMPLID_ONLY_TRANSCRIPTS.
To make sure your file mapped properly and the batch will run successfully, you can click the Preview Selection Results link on the right. You should see something similar to the image below with each row listing a UCID.
If the file is incorrectly formatted, you will see something similar to the image below with strange characters instead of EMPLIDs.
If you need to delete the file, click the Return button at the top left to exit the preview and return to the Process Transcripts page. Remove the erroneous file by clicking the Delete File button and then upload a corrected file before proceeding with the steps below.
In the Additional Options section, use the Print Sort Option drop-down to determine if you want the batch file to sort by Last Name or Student ID.
When you are ready to create the batch file, click Run on the top right. In the Process Scheduler Request screen, check the box to the left of Process transcripts, make sure the *Type is Web and *Format is PDF, and click OK. Important: Do not check the box for PRCH. This is a job specific to Parchment transcript processing and should not be used.
In the Process Transcripts page, click on the Process Monitor link that is left of the Run button. Click the Refresh button on the top right periodically until the Run Status says “Success” and Distribution Status says “Posted,” indicating that the file is done. Click the Go back to Process Transcripts link above the Save button.
Click the Report Manager link in the top center of the Process Transcripts page.
