Configuring OBIA for Student Information Analytics module with SCD Type 2 Dimensions

Currently, OBIA-Student Information Analytics has two Dimension groups available for SCD (USER and INT_ORG_D). Are there any plans to get other Dimension groups implemented with SCD Type 2? An example of this requirement is that a Student applies and is admitted to the university as a Non-Resident (NR); however, a year later that same student establishes residency. By this time, the student has matriculated and has been taking classes. The most important piece is that the student was admitted and applied as a NR. This needs to be reflected in the reports that users run. With the current setup in SIA, the latest residency is always acknowledged. Therefore, one day a user running the report will see that the student is a NR; whereas, the next day, the user can change to a resident for the same data set.

This is just one example of SCD tables used within SIA. There are some more examples of where SCD Type 2 will be needed.
