The PEARS Team values your feedback and works to continually improve your PEARS experience. One avenue we use to solicit feedback is our Client Satisfaction Survey, administered every summer since 2018. The results of the 2019 PEARS Client Satisfaction Survey highlighted usability as an important factor for improving PEARS. In an effort to make PEARS more user friendly, the PEARS Team recently completed a range of updates to layouts across many PEARS modules to bring more consistency to the site.
These updates include:
Formatting modules in a similar manner to follow existing PEARS patterns
Splitting data entry into multiple sections
Including a “Mark as Complete” section
Including fields for comments and file attachments
Using uniform save buttons at the bottom of each section
These updates affect the following modules: Program Activities, Success Stories, Indirect Activities, Partnerships, Coalitions, PSE Site Activities, and Social Marketing Campaigns. The specific changes to each module are listed below.
We hope these efforts to make PEARS more uniform will positively impact your experience.
Program Activities Updates
Previously in PEARS, the first section of the Program Activities module was referred to as “Program Activity Information.” Other modules in PEARS use the more universal “General Information” title for the corresponding section in those records. To keep nomenclature consistent across the site, we have changed “Program Activity Information” to “General Information.”
