What’s New in 2.2?
SchoolMint Enroll 2.2 has a variety of minor enhancements and quality-of-life features, which I’ll list out at the end, but the big thing I want to call out is the new Workflow Notifications feature.
New Feature: Workflow Notifications
Initially a feature unveiled this past summer with SchoolFinder, Workflow Notifications have expanded into SchoolMint Enroll as well! This exciting new feature is the key to unlocking communication at all levels.
With this feature, you can create custom notifications to be sent to your administrative team members and/or guardians. These notifications trigger when an administrator, guardian, or the system itself performs a specific action.
For example, users can add a workflow notification for applications and have the notification trigger when a guardian changes their address. Then the administrator can decide which user group or individual user(s) will receive notification of that action.
You can see an example of notification triggers below as well as how users have the option of creating and then using their own custom notification triggers:

2. Lottery Improvements
Of course, in the spirit of lottery season, we’re thrilled to add a handful of lottery enhancements to SchoolMint Enroll.
Here are some of those improvements:
Lottery Priority names and Sub-lottery numbers will display in the applications module.
Fields from the Lottery Rankings table available for saved views in the applications module.
Choose to notify the guardian when accepting/declining a lottery placement on behalf of a family.
3. User Group Restrictions on Form Steps
SchoolMint Enroll users now have the ability to add user restrictions to a form step so that sensitive data is accessible only to authorized groups. Administrators can do this in two ways:
By completely hiding the step from specific User Groups.
By granting view-only access to specific User Groups.
For example, if you’re a district administrator, you can make it so that student health information is viewable only to school nurses — and not to your registrar. This feature ensures confidential information remains with relevant personnel.
Also New in 2.2
While I’m pretty stoked about Workflow Notifications in SchoolMint Enroll, there are a variety of other things worth highlighting about this release, of course!
The product team here has also included a laundry list of enhancements — as follows:

Calculated fields allow for three decimal places
Option at the program level to exclude weekends when calculating the auto-decline/offer expiration deadline
New standard report: Application Count by Ranked Choice
