HomeSchool Minder Update
Good morning everyone! Well, we had an update this weekend and below is the list of things we changed:
-New Header. With our new header we added a new, yet to be released module, called Resources. This new module will allow users to add things such as videos, web links, PDFs, and more to lesson plans and assignments. We will also be adding a new activities view for students. We plan on releasing this new module this summer.
-The new header also enabled us to fully display student and year names. No more truncating!
-Student List. When the user clicks to change students, they should now find the list of students is now sorted alphabetically. Finally, right?!?!?!
-Student Search Filter. When a user clicks to change students, and they have 10+ students, a new Search Filter will appear at the top of the list letting users quickly and easily find a specific student.
-Calendar Attendance. When a user clicks on a calendar day, to enter hourly attendance, the cursor will now automatically default to the “Hours present” field.
-Gradebook. We made some changes to the way the Gradebook loads to hopefully ease some of the “Loading” issues users have reported.
-Saving Attendance. We also made some changes to hopefully make the saving of attendance more responsive. Some users reported having difficulties with attendance not always saving in a timely manner.
-Lesson Plan Script Errors. Some users reported seeing “Script Errors” in the drop down list portion of the Lesson Plan module. We corrected a minor scripting issue that will hopefully rectify this, but Windows users, please let us know if you continue to see this error appear.
And as always, we have much more coming in the ensuing months. Also, your feedback extremely important to us, so please be sure to let us know what and how we can do better.
