Coursedog’s Scribe Generator converts existing requirements and their rules into Degree Works scribe with a single click.
The ability to convert requirements to scribe is useful for copying Simple Requisites/Requirements in Curriculum Mangament to the Scribe application.
It appears as a “Convert to Scribe” button in the Simple Requirements view. You can learn more about simple requirements here.
If you don’t see a “Convert to Scribe” button in your UI and would like to use it, talk to your Customer Success representative.

When you convert a requirement block to scribe, the scribe block will include both the requirement rules as well as a “block header”.
The block header is based on the requirement name (e.g. Major in Accounting), the school name, and the effectiveDate (year) range (startTerm and endTerm) for the given program (e.g. 2020-2022).
This header is included for ALL requirement blocks/text we generate.
The below screenshot shows a complete scribe conversion result, with the block header at top and the requirement rules underneath.
