Please see the information below related to process changes and known issues associated with the catalog's new integration with our curriculum inventory management system (CIM). We'll continue to add and update content as issues are discovered and resolved.

    New Processes

    Editing Curriculum Information in CIM

    In the past, catalog reviewers edited all non-faculty and non-course content through their approval queue. Now that the catalog is integrated with CIM, all curriculum-related content must be edited through the CIM system. To revise your curriculum content, follow the step-by-step instructions below for your preferred navigation method.

    Managing Catalog & Curriculum Workflows

    Choosing "Catalog" as your change type when making program edits in CIM will lock revisions for any information that isn't displayed in the catalog, and will replace the standard CIM workflow with the corresponding catalog page's workflow.

    This means that when you submit a curriculum edit through CIM, that CIM revision will appear as a page in your reviewer queue along with the corresponding catalog page.

    To tell the pages apart in your approval queue:

    • The program page's URL always starts with "/programadmin".
    • The catalog page's URL starts with catalog navigation (e.g., "/undergraduate/colleges-schools").

    We recommend approving the CIM program and catalog pages at the same time so the next person in the workflow can review them together.

    Known Issues

    Outdated Curriculum Information Displays in Approval Queue (Design Limitation)

    At this time, only fully approved program information will display in the gray-shaded integration boxes when viewed through your reviewer queue. These boxes do display a label that indicates when the content it's displaying was last updated.

    If a program revision has since been submitted and is still making its way through the CIM workflow, that content will not display in the gray-shaded integration boxes. However, you can still view the submitted revisions either in the catalog or through CIM by following the step-by-step instructions below.

    Curriculum Content Isn't Editable Through the Approval Queue (Design Limitation)

    When users try to edit CIM-hosted content through their approval queue, rather than through the program's catalog page, they are not redirected to CIM. Instead, a "Program Requirements" pop-up window appears with a "Select Program" drop-down menu. 

    Note: Do not change the program selection in this drop-down menu. Doing so will change which program's requirements are displayed in that integration field.

    To edit this content, users must instead submit their edits through CIM's program management site by following the instructions above ("Editing Curriculum Information in CIM").

    Learning Outcomes Display Error (Resolved)

    As of the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 3, this issue has been resolved. If learning outcomes exist for your program in CIM should now correctly display on your catalog page when viewed through your approval queue's preview window.
