This Week's Tweaks

Friday 09 December 2011 04:45 pm

PG Database
completed tool to allow HoD/PG to batch 'mark as approved' all quarterly/ annual reports via 'reports_pending' tool (can tickbox select which reports to approve, colour coding to show un/satisfactory at a glance).

core
added central dept codes to department table/ tool (for applicants tool)

applicants tool
migrated MS Access database for managing MPharm applicants to SPIDER based system. Uses central applicant data extract to populate programme data/ applicant lists.

lab stock
updated 'form' to include tablets. Added user lab for PhD students. Restricted access to lab stock information to user labs for PhD level users. Linked lab stock to main tools script for PhD students.

SCRIPT
moved javascript lightbox library locally after remote host became unavailable.

exam paper database
further changes to UI to improve ease of use - intention to develop a 'stage by stage' process to assist users.

class descriptors
minor changes to allow 'future' descriptors to be managed. Added 'level' field.

myPlace
updated quiz links to fallback to SPIDER where myPlace quizzes not working in a number of MSc and UG classes.

This Week's Tweaks

Friday 02 December 2011 04:18 pm

core
updated inc_form file upload element with span/label tags to allow it to pick up more style options

PG DB
updated show_report to only display single record per student where 'not satisfactory' (was previously showing multiple entries for a single student if they had multiple reports). Added attachment option for all reports to allow student/ supervisors to upload multiple files to any report.

Radiation records
updated stock_history to show rps exact figures for usage/remaining values. Minor bug fix to pdf output of stock history. Monthly sealed sources report - fixed to show current v2 data instead of historic v1 data. Fixed limits pages to allow limits to be updated/ set on all labs instead of just current radiation active labs (e.g. allows for update to limits for a lab that is no longer used for radiation). Updated limits page to allow filtering for all, active or expired limits.

ePDP
fixed bug relating to viewing different sessions for students no longer on system (staff viewing previous counsellees) or not having logged in to SPIDER this session (so no confirmation of this sessions degree) by using central data instead of local data. Need to look at issue of saving key skills with myPlace 'skin' in i-frame causing 'scroll to bottom of page' issues in Safari.

SIPBS website
first meeting of group looking at updating departmental website. Main focus of discussion on site structure and 'click through paths', as well as 'target' audience.

Workshop jobs system
many small bug fixes and updates to features list.

Quiz tool
text output of quizzes now has improved formatting to allow easier offline use (e.g into Word etc).

Exam paper database
reworking staging/ processing to make interface and production of exam paper and questions more user friendly.

MS Access
started to look at hooking up 'admissions' database to central admissions data via ODBC.
