This Week's Tweaks

Friday 27 January 2012 03:49 pm

uLab
started "Lab Designer" tool - will allow users to create a 2D interactive floor-plan/ model of their lab. After much research into possible solutions, decided to build this tool using the OpenLayers system. Primarily a mapping tool, but can be retooled to do 'local' mapping. Also looking at geo-location search tool to allow users to find items and distance between items (using Google API to measure distances). Added labs table/objects.

SCRIPT
fixed admin> user list to allow filter to show NES users.

Radiation database
updated user manager to allow filter on active/ inactive users

Lab stock
updated to allow safety services to view other department's stock data.

Applicants database/ student awards
added tool to applicants system to allow resolution of UCAS ID to student registration number to allow new student awards tool to match exam awards to students. Will allow us to get data on school exam performance for current students based on central award data - e.g. number of entrants with Highers at AAAA etc.

core
updated inc_functions_data - getUserProgCode function now returns programme version as well as prog_code

PG Database
updates to report_reminders and report_reminders_cron tools - extended email options to cover report submission as well as pre-due date reminders. Started to modify show_report to deal with the submission email settings.

Asset register
updated to allow search results to be published as pdf - lets users select one or more result records to be output as pdf into a zip archive. Updated search tool to allow for more complex operators and extended search fields (e.g. can now find items with PAT test dates greater than yyyy-mm-dd).

Exam Paper Database
Completed udpates, now in final testing of this version of the tool.

Exam Paper Database
rewriting core code to improve code clarity and future development.

PG Database
continued work on advanced search function. Added in 'report reminder' tools - firstly to allow admins to create reminder profiles for the different report types (done), and secondly to automate sending reminder emails (needs testing). Tweaked home page for PG students to give quick access to reports. Added in list of PDP files on reports tab to allow staff/students quick access to them.

ULab
started development of core website for ULab project. Early meeting to discuss functionality.

STS
reworked codePrefs and top/nav/bottom to allow for sites to use CSS templates from http://www.freecsstemplates.org/

spiderbase
updated some of the central called data tables with extra fields (mostly to do with PG records).

Radiation records
updated stock to display more accurate value for activity/ volume when these values are below 5 (kBq or uL) to allow staff to enter exactly matching values when making final usage of stocks.

Postgrad Records Database
bug fix student_record - was incorrectly storing 'saver' user as supervisor_1/_2 in local data if no central supervisor values available (causing MSc students to get supervisors they didn't have). Tweak to student_reports to improve matching students to their default report set for their degree programme. Added student suspensions tool (not live) to allow for recording of suspension dates & duration. Includes option to modify report due dates based on duration of suspension. Started work on advanced search function. Will allow PG admin level users to run runtime customised complex queries (cf phpMyAdmin search feature). Fixed bug in staff_view not correctly filtering staff status (was showing sup_2 and sup_1 instead of just sup_1 students).

Applicants database
fixed bug in ODBC connection causing duplicate records for applicants who apply for multiple degree programmes. Updated award and subject listings. Created import tool to pull data on awards from MS Access system.

Lab stock
fixed bug in lab filter missing out chemicals starting with y or z

Radiation records
fixed bug in display of 'per isotope' disposals not including disposal of temp storage activity carried forward from v1 system. Now correctly shows these disposals and links back to v1 stock they are associated with.
