Questions for aXcelerate

  1. It appears every instance box add six seconds load time to a page. Is there a way to improve website performance while maintaining enrolment buttons.
  2. Please help clean up courses and contacts we need to consolidate all emerging records and delete both contacts and courses systems IDs. Do we need to delete notes, enrolments, passports and other documents, enquiries, invoices and enrolments.
  3. Does the enquiries form create new contacts for billing and enrolments?
  4. How do we correctly create aXcelerate Users and clean up the ones we have? For example, my user has Harlan’s email.
  5. We’ve created our own forms now, are there any tricks or tips for these to be done better?

2 Go over with Luke - Contact Management on aXcelerate admin portal

Second topic:

FYI: Millie gave us info to purge contacts that have been put into the database via tests.

  1. We asked 6 questions, and we are fine with 5 of the 6 answers.  No problems.
  2. On the 6th answer, in your own words, yes, we are stuck… so we need a bit of Luke’s time on a zoom call.

Answer provide on contacts clean-up (but a lot of moving parts for our skill level):

Our UAT test posted to the live instance of Axclerate… leaving more orphan data than we are comfortable with keeping.

So our hands-on sessions would be to:

  • Learn risks, and good practices on housecleaning safely in future
  • if we can create multiple mistaken records in UAT, so will students, or even spam bots..
    • The relationships between students, enquiries aka notes, and portfolio data is connected.
    • It makes even the slightest effort to clear these records complicated…
    • Merging contact records is also something I noticed.
  • In similar ways, creation and management of system users seems to be related.
    • Even our system users list has discrepancies, between user name and email, see “Harlan Webber”

I don’t think these updates should be limited to our advanced users (Kirsten)
– But I do think these are things we need to know, even if only for experts.

And I see that James Perry-Keene System User ID has Harlan Webber’s email address, so we can’t even add/update an admin user correctly.
