This Week's Tweaks

Friday 18 February 2011 04:22 pm

(and some stuff from last week as IDT wasn't in on the 11th)

SCRIPT
bug fix in manage test - Javascript issue with IE preventing 'preview' from showing

core
inc_functions_data - added department functions: function getDept_ID($user); function getDept_list();  which were present in a few other modules (PG records, radiation v2 etc.)

lab stock
updated lab view page to include 'active' and 'radiation' flags

SIDR
updated to use latest version of STS template tool.

radiation v2
updates to bin management (move bins to safety services store), limits manager and tool to view safety services bin store.

questionnaires
updated to allow view results/ export limit to session where questionnaires are re-used year to year.

IMB website
updated CSS and other style related bits n pieces to give site a refresh.

iGEM 2011
created this site in STS

Migration
completed backupClass_JSON (admin tool to export a class' data and file content into a zip archive). Passed exemplar classes to myPlace team for import testing/ review. Added Migration FAQ to wiki site

research admin
updated REF tools to allow editing of current journals to allow update of impact factors.

Asset register
bug fixes in pdf output and date save on new entries. Update all SIPBS assets from old department name allocations.

Agile Development

Tuesday 15 February 2011 03:12 pm

you may have read about the 37 minute development on myPlace over at http://support.myplace.strath.ac.uk/updates/blog/2011/02/08/agile-development/ . What they perhaps should have mentioned is that 'time release' of content was noted as a SPIDER feature that was missing in Moodle back in May 2009 (see item 37 on page p3 of this file). So, 18 months and 37 minutes... :)

This Week's Tweaks

Friday 11 February 2011 05:01 pm

Blog
Added a search box. Try it out ------>
It doesn't pick up too much as there aren't many public blogs on the system.

Exam Paper database
updates to usability. mainly organising the sytem better but also update so coordinators can add in new questions on exam page without having to go into the sections and edit them

Booking system
updates to way bookings are displayed, now shows info on screen rather than having to hover over the 'i' icon. other cosmetic tweaks

SIPBS website
final tweaks mainly to css / consistency as it's going out for review very soon

This Week's Tweaks

Friday 04 February 2011 04:13 pm

Radiation
v1 - update to labs and lab owners for automatic monthly report emails; bug fix - temp stores ignoring rectify entries leading to incorrect display of total activity.
v2 - updated limits and orders so that ordering stock obeys lab/ isotope limits; added bin move option for ss and dbm users to allow bins to be moved from lab to lab and from lab to ss store

class data/discussions
added option to allow class editors to limit posts to class discussions to either the class list only or (the default) all users. Update to inc_functions_status | is_class to enable it to distinguish between proper classes and other class contstructs (e.g. community discussions). Update to addDiscussions to account for this change.

backup class
began to recode standard class backup code, which exports in 'SPIDER' format, to a new 'system neutral' format that replaces the 'meta data' in SQL format with a JSON format string. WIP

SIPBS website/ oneLAN signage
minor change to SIPBS news feed to 'cut' longer news items so that the signage system ticker is not overwhelmed by long news items.

PG DB
updated home page to show quick link for staff to view student progress; changed progress screen to highlight overdue reports to make it easier for supervisors to locate such reports. Started to update the funding tools to better handle finance codes (AJAX smart list) WIP.

Pharmacy MSc classes
re-deployed content from old single class to multiple new class codes, including all interactive content.

exam papers database
last usage of questions now allows a roll-back if a question is in a draft exam paper, but then is not actually used.
