This Week's Tweaks

Friday 21 September 2012 04:40 pm

PG Records database
further tweaks/ changes &  minor bug fixes to funding tools. Updated admin advanced search layout, added option to select fields in results page. Fixed "reports - pending" tool to ony show empty reports for 'first editor' if user selects 'all reports' instead of specifying a single report type.

Class Descriptors
bug fix issue causing new descriptors to show wrong 'year' level. Updated admin view in class drop downs so that it reads "code - name" when ordering by code.

PDP barcode tool
updated record activity feature to show status as 'saved' instead of 'pass/fail' to avoid students seeing other students status once tool is live. Updated layout of status to multi-columns to better fit on screen.

Tools
updated link to PG tool to appear in new browser window instead of Javascript confined pop-up.

Core
updated inc_form: showSelect to include CSS class in option elements. Reviewed registration procedure to ensure new-style email address of students is correctly picked up.

STS
fixed bug in editConfig that wasn't correctly adding initial config settings. Fixed bug in manageNavigation that was not correctly displaying the correct rank options for pages.

Activity manager
added feature to stop students submitting if they have selected less than a specified number of projects (need to add this to 'create activity', hard coded for MPharm project just now).

uLab
created 'taxonomy' arrays for use in categorising equipment. More changes to v2 of calendar/ booking system - mostly to do with notifications/ moving of events as well as sorting access rights/ editing status.

Updated calendar/ booking with smart Javascript version - allows user clicking to add event and drag/ drop/ resizing of booking event. Can click to add meta-data etc. Smart resizing to allow events to fit in a 'day'. Update style/ look and feel.

Myplace integration
revamped the way tools are displayed when linked/ integrated with Myplace. Instead of 'local' tool based skinning, entire site now switches to a Myplace theme/ skin. This means any tool linked/ integrated with Myplace will automatically now 'look' correct. (changes to core: codePrefs, inc_bottom, inc_myNav_myplace; and modules/pdp, modules/questionnaire, modules/quiz)

ePDP/ PDP barcode
completed input tool. Request to centre to add library 'barcode' value to API completed. Updated script to pull central data to include the library barcode value. Added forms to manage 'ativity' names/ classes. Added PDP extension ("lab skills") to display results in student PDP of activities. Bug fixed inc_pdp_top to show correct year tabs for PhD students.

uLab/ Template
updated uLab to use latest version of STS template (news, settings, index, inc_main_style, top, bottom). Minor tweaks to CSS. Updated lab designer with 'delete confirm' dialogue boxes. Looked at JQuery for use in calendar based tools (e.g for moving, resizing events in booking).

Activity tool
updated project list view to show number of students each project is for.

Questionnaires
fixed to allow for students to complete open 'last session' questionnaires following change of academic year (check if the are on 'last year' class list in Sept).

PG database
more work on funding tool. Added 'report_funding' to get overview of students per session with/without funding. Includes 'click to view' funding summary.

Pharmaceutical Analysis
shifted site to live SPIDER (while DEV is offline pending fix/ replacement server). Updated to better handle Chinese characters.

Class descriptors
fixed labels on class home page showing current session descriptor links.
