Improved Error Handling and User Messages

    Details

    • Rice Theme:
      Usability
    • Priority Score:
      7
    • Functional Justification :
      Hide
      Error messages are very important to functional users and help ensure they complete a document correctly. The error messages in Kuali are not always clear, don't appear in the order of the fields, sometimes appear in the wrong place and at the wrong time. For example, users are directed to question pages before a page is validated and so after answering or confirming the question page they may be directed back to the eDoc to fix errors. Also, some of the error messages are stored in property files which require developer assistance to change.

            This was discussed in KAI. Ailish mentioned that Kymber was planning to follow this up.

            I'd like to have us come up with a list of specific issues and desired enhancements to error and message handling so that we can be sure we understand the full scope of this roadmap item. The linked KFSMI-3366 issue contains a list of item but I wasn't sure if that list is complete. I think it would be good to get input from the interested rice stakeholders in addition to what has been brought to us by KFS. Then we could potentially prioritize the items, or consider them all as one big chunk for this roadmap item.

            High Level Scope

            The KFSMI-3366 list is complete and represents the scope. The list has a good level of detail/description of the type. The list represents input from many sources and it is felt that it based prioritize by a group i.e. KAI. It was stated that the entire list is needed.

            Many of the items on Damon's list have been addressed in Rice 2.2, milestone 1: Validation message framework refactoring.
