Active/Archive Application Optimization:
All archived applications will be housed in a separate database to significantly increase application and database performance. There will be no change visible to any active applications being accessed by the Admins/Reviewers/Applicants for data accessibility at any time after this upgrade. Based on several tests we have performed we have seen a 100% to a 1000% increase in applicant and reviewer application usage performance. Again, there is no impact on the active applications.
How do upgrades affect day-to-day operations on the site?
When archived applications are moved to a separate archive database, the Admin, Applicant, and Reviewer still have access to those documents the same way as they always did, however, the data show in the archives will be one day old (only for archived data). This is due to nightly sync is required, there will be up to a 24-hour delay to that access. During this nightly sync, the system will move the applications to the archive database and sync all databases properly. The same applies when moving archived applications to the active database.

When an applicant nominates a recommender to complete a request form, the nominee will now have the ability to see a listing of all the applicants that have nominated them to complete the recommendations across all the applications on the site. The user will see the list of all recommendations which are on his/her name. The user does not need to always come via the nomination email to work on the nominations. He can switch between the nominations using the My Recommendations list screen.
