Red Box: shows programs that utilize courses that may need resolution in one or more of the following: inactivation/discontinuation of a course; change of subject; change of catalog number; or new/unapproved course. These items, if not resolved, will result in the software using a 'red-box' around the subject and catalog number combination indicating there is an issue with the course as entered.

Lumen/Guide Roles Directory: lists all Lumen/Guide workflow roles and their members filterable by school/college, department and role type. Includes identifiers for who is a chair or dean and which members are no longer employed by the university.

Obsolete Course Proposal Process: shows all courses identified as obsolete per policy in progress for the current academic year and where the proposal is in the governance process. Includes filters for school/college/division, department, subject or crosslist, course title, and waiver status.

Suspended/Discontinued Programs: tracks academic programs (plans and subplans) that are in the process of being discontinued. Intended for the purpose of aiding schools and colleges with the processes necessary to close down a program.
