Also see Known Issues & Troubleshooting. If you require further assistance, log an SRS Request. Issues that seem to be of a technical nature can be raised via an IT Service Desk Request.
You will not see an offering in your Dashboard if you have not been added into an ACSES or SOT role for the offering; or for offerings which are:

If a ‘No Subject Outline’ CASIMS tag is removed, you must log a DIT Service Desk Request to force the addition of subject offerings to the SOT (adding the tag should cause the offerings to automatically disappear from the SOT).
Video guides are coming soon. You can download the SOT Quick Start Guide here.
Supporting artefacts include a Schedule template pre-filled with key session dates; and a summary of the Editable Autotext for Workplace Learning (WPL) that is available in a WPL Outline template.
From mid-July 2019, the Item Number, Title and Value of assessment tasks will be publicly available via the Charles Sturt Handbook. The intention is to provide prospective students with an indication of the assessment involved in a subject, as do most Australian University websites.
Information will be drawn from your Outline once it is published if it is for the subject offering with the highest number of enrolments for the session. It is acknowledged that assessment tasks vary from session to session and therefore it is made very clear to prospective students that the Handbook section is a guide only. The Handbook will be updated each session that the subject is offered. A sample Handbook section is shown below.
The function that can show/hide table cell borders treats borders as if they are double-walled – so the cell wall and its adjacent cell wall must be removed to hide the border. For example, to remove a left cell border:
In some cases, tables that have been cloned or pasted into the SOT editor will be detected as a header row and therefore will repeat on each page of the PDF that the table spans. If not:

Refer to help on ‘Marking criteria and standards’ for both Assessment Items and Exam Items.
Check you have enabled pop ups for the SOT on your browser. If they’re disabled, the PDF will be blocked.
The PDF displays the full URL for all hyperlinks. This is because the PDF serves as the printable version required by the Subject Outline Policy. Once printed, the student requires display of the full URL.
The SOT supports cloning back to the MSI template that commenced 201730. For pre-201730 Outlines, copying/pasting is much easier within the new SOT editor if you wish to manually transfer your content. If you’d like help to transfer your content, raise an SRS request. For immediate support, phone an ESC on 34274 (external 02 6933 4274).
If the editor is null, it will display grey ‘Click to edit’ default text. If you cannot see the default text (see yellow highlighted text below), activate the editor to remove any spaces that still exist.
If you have previously uploaded the image, the system will detect that it is already available from your image “Gallery” and will display the following pop up message: “File already uploaded. Try renaming the file or browse your image gallery.”
Click on the folder icon from the editor’s Insert Image menu to browse your gallery; or rename the file in its source location. You could also try deleting the image from the gallery and uploading it again. If you still encounter issues, please log an IT Service Desk Request.
If your device is set to a date format of MM-DD-YYYY (month then day) this causes a problem because the SOT uses Australian date format of DD-MM-YYYY (day then month).
The problem occurs when the Due Date date picker opens and tries to load the current date. It confuses the day/date with the month and cannot load. For example, if the current date is 17th May, the date picker attempts to set the 17th month.
Remedy this by changing your date/region settings to Australia; then re-opening the SOT.
