The Rule List contains a list of all Rules in the system.
Users with the relevant permissions can create and delete Rules from this view.
If you click on a Rule, you will be taken to the Rule Detail page.
From this page, users with the relevant permissions can edit the rule, edit the rule's Needed Rule, edit the rule's Forced Rule, as well as alter the visibility of courses.
When creating or editing a rule, the following fields are editable:
- Credits To Fulfill
- Type of Rule
- Default Course
Both the Needed Rule and the Forced Rule present you with an eligibility rule builder as is presented when editing a course.
The visibility toggle for each course edits the course specific (but global to all rules) On Selection Form field and is intended as a shortcut.
The Requirement List contains a list of all requirements in the system.
Users with the relevant permissions can create and delete Requirements from this view.
If you click on a Requirement, you will be taken to the Requirement Detail page.
From this page, users with the relevant permissions can edit a requirement.

Reorder requirements allows you to rearrange the requirements (rows) as well as the rules (individual cells) through an intuitive drag and drop interface. This interface auto saves — when it has saved your edits, a green "Saved!" dialogue will appear in the upper right of the screen.
The Required Approvals page shows all the Course Exception Required Approvals in the system.
Users with the relevant permission can create and delete Course Exception Required Approvals from this view.
If you click on a Course Exception Requirement Approval, you will be taken to a detail page.

The Course Applications page shows all the Course Applications in the system.
Users with the relevant permissions can create and delete Course Applications from this view, in addition to navigating to the Course Application management page.
If you click on a Course Application, you will be taken to a detail page.
From this page, users with the relevant permissions can Create Another Course Application, Edit the Reason, Add a Message, and Approve or Deny the application.
Creating a course application requires the following fields:
Edit the reason allows you to... edit the reason.
Add a message allows a user to add a message to a course application, this will be visible to the student.
Approval and denial are two options available to users with the relevant permissions. If a user has the override permission, the approve all and deny all options will allow them a shortcut to mass approving or mass denying for each individual listed.
The Course Application Management page is theoretically similar to the All Course Applications List page except it will only contain applications that the currently logged in user has yet to review, along with additional information to make the approval of these requests trivially easy and fast. There is also the ability to select many requests with a checkbox and mass approve or mass deny.
Mass Course Exception Create
The Mass Course Exception Create page allows you to create a course application for a large number of students at once.
You must provide:
- A list of student IDs
The list of Student IDs, once pasted in (and you click away) will populate the right pane with matched users.
All requests will be created in the 'Pending' state.
Student Selection List
The Student Selection List is a shortcut for the generic Student Search page that contains whether or not the student has submitted choices, as well as if their choices have been approved.
These fields are also searchable — so you could generate a list of students whose choices have not been approved by OFCL, for example.
The Students Qualified page allows you to enter a course. Talos then determines whether each student is qualified for this course, in addition to whether those students actually chose the course (as a first choice).
Student Choice Overview
The Student Choice Overview page gives a breakdown of each course for which selections could be made, and how many students from each grade have selected the course. Once the page has entirely loaded, it is exportable to an Excel sheet for more precise manipulation.
Course Placement Admin
The Course Placement Admin generates in a fashion similar to the Student Choice Overview, an overview of how many students are in each bucket for each course that has Course Placements.
Users can also generate placements which will iterate through all choices made and generate pending placements for those that should have placements.
Course Placement Management
The Course Placement Management screen is the hub for users to place students in the appropriate bucket for each course.
The left "courses" bar allows you to switch the course that you are editing. You can select a number of students, and then perform a batch action on them using the dropdowns at the top of the list.
If you click on an individual placement object you can also move them from that screen.
There is also an ability for users with the relevant permissions to place students into a placement from a student's detail page if they weren't already on the placement list for a course.
The Graduation Requirements page is available to users with the relevant permissions as an option in a Student's tab menu.
It presents the selected graduation requirements table for that student, and the status of each rule. Red means a rule has yet to be fulfilled, yellow means a rule is currently being fulfilled (with courses the student is enrolled in for the current term), and green means that a course has been fulfilled.
The panel on the lower left part of the page allows for deeper analysis into how each box is being fulfilled — each rule is collapsible in the right column, you can expand any rule to learn more.
The panel on the lower right part of the page represents the relevant Course Applications for the student.
The following actions can be taken from this page:
- Course Selection Form
- This will take you to the student's course selection form.
- Generate Default Fillins
- This lets the computer have a best guess at how to fill-in the graduation requirements table.
- The Graduation Requirement Table dropdown
- This allows you to select the graduation requirements in use for this student.
- This allows you to clear all associations between courses and rules in how they are being counted for this student.
- Manually Assign Courses to Student
- This lets you do the Generate Default Fillins manually and tell the system how to count each course for the student.
- This allows you to create a Course Application for a student.
