Combined Sections Table (Fluid)

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for how to create combined class sections via Fluid navigation in ctcLink.

Audience:  Curriculum Management Staff.

We have observed Enrollment Totals mismatch in the past when the Class Capacity or Waitlist Capacity has been adjusted after student enrollment has begun. Unfortunately, once this mismatch occurs, it's a known Oracle bug that the totals will be off.

There is a Query, QCS_SR_EXPDENRL_COMBSECT - Expd Enrollment Combined Sectn, that can help you confirm actual enrollment.

Requesting information on what Permanent Combination check box does, and how/why we would use it. Thank you, Lynn

Hello Lynn, Thank you for your question. When you perform the prior term copy process, a check instructs the system to roll the combination. By clearing this check box, the system assumes that the arrangement is temporary. Have a great day, Lynn! ~Tanjagay Martin | CS Core Trainer
