Friday 31 May 2013 04:40 pm

deptWeb
fixed bug in extended staff profile stopping image uploader working.

CMAC
updated news tool to allow for 'industry vacancy' news category.

PGR Apps
started to work through code to understand basic functions and relations with table structures.

ePDP
updated to allow staff to allocate un/satisfactory progress to previous sessions (previously limited to admins)

Seabiotech
added tools to allow submission of sample data and tracking - allows users to submit the data relating to physical samples and the tests that are carried out on them.

uLab
updated lab_list to order alpha by owner name, then lab name (was previously ordering by username). Booking system - bug fixes: custom fields check boxes now work correctly and allow for all alphanum characters to be used in the labels. Kit booking usage report now has option (default) to show all kit in lab; kit ordered by name (need to update rights).

PG credits
added new PG credits function to test server for PG records - allows student to add credit weighted activities to a grid which totals up their credits over several domains for the duration of their study. Can view/ add and delete activities - see image. Need to add approval option for supervisors.

This Week's Tweaks

Friday 17 May 2013 04:45 pm

PG DB
minor changes to show_report and inc_pg_reminders to allow HoD/PG to get email on submit for Maths & Stats. Updated financial tools to split fees and stipends. Fixes to layout and AJAX.

Beetle
updated progress reports - completed/ pending and started on un/satisfactory reports.

uLab
updated admin view of tabs. Fixed userInfo_multiple to use correct CSS/ layout. Fixed display bug in add_location. Updated user edit and related includes to restrict user to dept/ building in own institutions. Will extend to registration process soon. Fixed some minor bugs in manage_institutions. Extended multi-day feature to allow it to accept all the standard booking options (custom fields, technical operators and sundries). Checkboxes in custom fields now work. Required lots of javascript reworking to overcome issues with JQuery. Updated bookings to allow technicians to 'autofill' technical operator slot when booking their own equipment (can still switch out to alternative technician if required).

STS/ CMAC
updated to include mailing list functionality - allows any user to add an email address to mailing list, which is then an option in the admin/ mail out tool. Fixed bug preventing uploads to shared document stores by non-owners.

Researchadmin
updated equipment bid tool to allow for session awareness. Updated field descriptors on user forms.

Engage
gallery updated to allow for direct linking to individual images in the gallery.

This Week's Tweaks

Friday 10 May 2013 04:42 pm

PG DB
updated live system with fix to allow for better workflow for report submission - previously couldn't reliably allow workflow to bounce back between 2 users. Updated report_reminders_cron so that it only emails out for students who are 'active' (skips suspended).

uLab
updated location tool to: allow users to edit locations; allow admin to edit all locations; updated live with location types and 'level'. Updated dev with new admin types (sys_admin, fac_admin, dept_admin) - need to update tools to account for these user types. Updated members page - re-organised to 3 tabs instead of 4 for admin level users. Updated edit_profile to reflect changes in locations table and to lock regular users to their institution (only sys_admin will be able to switch a user's institution). Linked in manage_institutions tool. Updated header/ footer display of logos. Finished sundries feature - now work across different equipment in different labs and moving bookings with sundy items now works correctly. Updated lab diary to view sundries as well as standard kit. Changed booking options page to display in tabs to make it more intuitive/ quicker to change options (AJAX). Updated code determining who is able to make kit bookable. Code to manage booking limits now live.

Core
updated alumnify_students to deal with 300 students per batch. Fixed crond issue on spider4. Updated cron jobs run by spider user to rsync sql dumps.

PDP
updated staff PDP progress tool to show student status (registered, suspension etc).

updated show_report to better handle disabling of form elements that particular users are not meant to fill in. Updated code to manage submission ordering. Sorted out course/ event booking system. Fixed bug in funding tools.

fixed issue with incorrect display of PDP if/when students bypass home page on login (direct entry via Myplace) meaning their current degree not confirmed, resulting in staff view of ePDP not matching correctly.
