Last few week's tweaks

Friday 12 April 2013 04:42 pm

A break in the blog output due to us having a bit of leave. Below is a list of changes/ progress since 22nd March or so.

uLab
bug fixes to equipment_list/ management to allow owner/ contacts to correctly edit their own kit. Updated bookable kit to allow custom notification options - managers, contacts or custom list of emails.  Reworked some of internal navigation, particularly breadcrumb links at the top of sub-pages to allow ease of moving up/ down hierarchy. Bug fixes on multi-day bookings over weekend. Fixed issue with line breaks in comments causing issues with JSON data. 'Add to watch list' tool fixed on equipment pages. Lab diary updated to allow switch between 24hr/ 7 day views.

Engage
updated events to allow for dynamic allocation of capacity between linked events (can set capacity to 30,40,40 and it will automatically allocate each sub-event to the capacity that best fits the sign-ups by delegates). Updates to allow for radio/ checkbox choices to be locked for sub-events when at capacity. Bug fixe for IE due to oddity with radio/ checkbox name/ id. Added extra buildings to getMapLinks. Updated mail-outs to include notice when delegate are added to waiting list. Added tool to allow admin users to manually assign delegates to an event (creates account if needed).

PG DB/ Beetle
updated show_report to make use of all the new changes to reports (WYSIWYG on textareas, wordcounts). Updated report editor in Beetle to allow for changes in main PG DB. Updated finance tools to allow for management of stipend data. Need to implement import functions.

STS
updated latest tinymce integration to correctly use local imageBrowser.

Lab data capture
udpated sterile/ non-sterile scripts to handle changes to labs (different chemicals). Bug fixes relating to marking schemes. Included code from 'fix' scripts into actual captures scripts to resolve issues in changes to marking schemes.

Core
fixed bug prevening PG students being correctly identified as on a PG course - now correctly works to make these students have PG accounts on first login.

ePDP
bug fix relating to save/edit data not using new inc_database calls in certain functions.

SIPBS DR
udpated DR documents, in particular file server doc.

Images of research
thumbnails now all square format (see Tim's blog). Imported data from offline source into system. Refinement of gallery layout/ function.
