OLR Status (Prime)

PATH: Census > Online Registration > OLR Status

This functionality is available to districts who have purchased Online Registration as an add-on service. For more information, contact the appropriate Client Executive.

The OLR Status tool is used to create the status types that are used when processing student applications. This editor works like the Campus Attendance tools, where multiple absent codes can be created with different excuse types.

Create the approval/denial letters in the Letter Designer (.1821 - .1837) tool BEFORE creating these statuses. Custom Letters must begin with "OLR" in the title to be able to be selected as a message in OLR statuses. Default OLR letters are stored in the OLR Administrator Group and can be moved as needed.

OLR Status Editor

ValueDescribes the status being created. This value could also include why such a status was assigned, e.g., Denied/Address Verification or Approved/Posted. One value for each type of letter that has the potential to be sent needs to be created.
SequenceIndicates the order in which the value sorts. Sequences are used for sorting only, not for display.
TypeIndicates the assigned status - either Denied, Approved or marked as Hold.
PostWhen the status is Approved, the Post checkbox can be marked, indicating the application is posted and approved for acceptance.

Districts now have the ability to unsubmit an application when a status is selected in Staff Processing. For example, a parent submits the application but forgets to or does not upload a birth certificate. The staff can select to hold the application and it is marked as Unsubmit, allowing the parent to include the birth certificate in the application.

Default Message

This is the name of the letter created in the letter designer that is sent when the status is assigned to the application. If the status is for an internal reference, a letter would not need to be sent to the parent.

Customers can choose which email letter is sent for each status change. If the status does not have a corresponding letter, a parent is not notified when the status changes. This method is useful for internal statuses between departments when it is not necessary for a parent to be notified.

The selection for Default Message is used for any Language that does not have a specific Letter assigned. If the Default Message and Letter(s) below are blank, no Letters are sent.


If the district has multiple languages and multiple letters set up for the languages, they can now select the different letters to use for a specific OLR status.

  2. Enter the Value of the new status.
  3. Enter the Sequence of the new status.
  4. Select the Type from the dropdown list.
  5. If it is an Approved type, mark the Post checkbox.
  6. Select the Default Message from the dropdown list that will be sent to students.

  8. Click the Save button when finished.

Create as many application statuses as needed. There are a few default statuses that cannot be changed, as follows:


An application was posted form the batch post.


District denies the application for any reason.


Application was manually approved/posted by staff processor at the district.


Application is being held for any number of reasons (Birth Certificate or proof of address).

Submitted - Existing with New Students

Status set when an existing parent submitted an annual data update with an added student

Submitted - Existing

Status set when an existing parent has submitted an annual data update with no new students added.

This is the automatic status for applications entered through the Portal.

Submitted - New Student

Status when an existing parent has submitted an application in the new student mode (generally with a Kindergarten registration).

This status is assigned for a new student registering via the Portal for an existing family.

Submitted - New

Status set once a new parent has submitted an application.

This status is assigned when applications are submitted via the kiosk link.

NewStatus set when a new parent has started an OLR application and has not submitted it.

Set once the mark batch applications is performed.

Applications marked as batch are annual update applications that have no change of address, no people added or removed from the application, and there are no health conditions or medications (unless the OLR System Setting is checked to ignore).
