This page has been redesigned to display programs in card-view format. The cards are divided into two sections: Current Programs and Program History, based on the dates of the individual program records. This should make identifying a student's current programs easy and quick. The layout for editing and adding records has not changed but is now displayed in a mini-window. Also, a new section has been added to this page called "Program Screenings". This is a new table (PGR) that can be used to track when students are evaluated for programs and the status of that evaluation. Approved screenings can be easily migrated into new PGM records with a click of a button. https://support.aeries.com/support/solutions/articles/14000070397-calpads-in-aeries-basics-special-programs
Student Program Screenings report
This new report is designed to display the Program Screenings for students from the new PGR table.

A new Banned Passwords feature has been added to this page. An admin user can configure passwords that will be disallowed when a user changes their password in Aeries, and that will force a change if a user currently has one of the passwords. These custom Banned Passwords are in addition to the hard-coded list of banned passwords in Aeries based on commonly used online passwords. Also, this page has been moved under the Security node in the navigation menu. https://support.aeries.com/support/solutions/articles/14000068046-aeries-password-requirements
Over 80 of the most widely used passwords across the Internet have all been banned from being used in Aeries. This expands upon the 25 passwords that were previously banned. Upon login, if the system detects one of these passwords, the user will be prompted to change it immediately.
The new Users with Invalid Passwords report can be run directly from this page via a button next to the Search button.
Users with Invalid Passwords report
This new report replaces the "Check Users for Invalid Passwords" macro in AdminCS. Admin users can run the report to identify users whose passwords may be insecure based on several criteria: passwords stored in plain text, passwords hashed with an algorithm that does not use salting, and passwords that are banned in Aeries.
With the ELPAC & IELPAC imports, the Testing Administration Date and Testing Completed Date are now determined by the individual student's Testing Completed Date value in the data file rather than a default value.

Import Course Requests from Academic Plan
The feature of entering a filtering value into the field labelled: "Only change students who meet the following conditions" has been removed due to security concerns. Instead, users must use a Query KEEP/SKIP to filter the students.
Login Page Redirects
The system has been adjusted to handle more deep-linking URL situations such as Reports, ensuring the system properly redirects a user to the login page when appropriate.
Additional security has been added to further increase resilience to "Relative Path Overwrite" (RPO) attacks.
