th1aaelkner: zyt?20:01
th1aDid you get that bug from Chris A?20:02
aelkneryes, looking into it20:02
aelkneralso, they are going to call me this afternoon20:02
th1aBasically they just need to click on the Gradebook, right?20:03
aelknerthey have to know to go to the section which is a button on their home page20:05
aelknerand then click gradebook20:05
th1aOr they could just click gradebook at top?20:10
th1areplaceafill: zyt?20:12
aelknerth1a: you know we still have two tabs that say 'Gradebook'20:17
aelknerone is for the journal20:18
aelknerperhaps that should be changed to Attendance?20:18
th1aWhen does that show up?20:18
aelknerit's a tab20:18
th1aFor teachers?20:18
th1aIt doesn't say "journal?"20:18
aelknerignas thought of it as a gradebook20:19
aelknerremember lyceum was going to use it as such20:19
th1a ?20:19
aelknerlet me check my instance20:20
th1aI think it might be wrong if you are a student.20:20
*** mgedmin has quit IRC20:21
aelknerah, yes, i make myself a student to test interventions20:22
aelkneri'll try another user on my local instance20:22
aelknerok, teachers who are only teachers don't get the link20:23
*** jelkner has quit IRC20:23
aelknerso i could just advise them to hit Gradebook at the top20:24
th1aThat should be easiest, I think.20:24
th1aAlso, if they need some views to easily view the previous narratives, we could do that for them, say, in a week.20:25
*** menesis has quit IRC21:06
replaceafillth1a, pong21:27
replaceafillsorry i was running some errands21:28
th1aI've started working on my Gantt chart.21:28
th1aYou're pretty much free next week right?21:28
replaceafillhhmm yes21:28
th1aOK.  I think you're going on Cambodia duty.21:28

th1aaelkner: zyt?22:44
th1aHow would you feel about an up-and-back-in-one-day trip to Providence next week?22:45
aelknerare you too busy to do two days?22:46
th1aMore I don't think we have *that* much to talk about.22:46
th1aI'd like to nail down the transcript question.22:46
th1aMaybe we can do it by phone.22:46
th1aProbably that would be fine.22:47
aelknerstill, i think there's a ton that we could discuss on my next visit22:47
aelknerit doesn't have to be regarding the transcript22:47
aelknerbut we could easily fill a couple of days looking at the app together and coming up with new bugs22:47
aelknerwe could do the transcript first, then have the visit later in the month22:48
th1aWell, we don't so much need to come up with new bugs now.  ;-)22:48
aelknerthere are lots of things that could be improved22:48
aelknerthings that we would realize if we poked around the app together22:49
th1aWe're going to be switching to specific things for pilot sites.22:49
aelknerbut that's your call22:49
aelkneri see22:49
th1aYeah, we aren't going to be poking around for random problems.22:49
aelknergot it22:49
th1aYou're going to be writing a lot of reports and import/export.22:49
aelknerwe can talk transcripts early next week22:49
th1aTranscripts will take a while to actually implement.22:49
th1aIn terms of creating the reports.22:50
aelknerbtw, chris alfano told the staff not to paste from Word for now22:51
aelknerwhen we get the fix, we can install it and inform them that it's ok to paste from Word again22:51
aelkneras for the crash from earlier today22:51
aelkneri get their Data.fs and ran it for the whle term, no crash22:51
aelknerit may be that he pasted from another app and fixed the data himself22:52
aelkneri'll keep in touch with alfano to keep on top of that22:52
aelknerbut for now, no new complaints, and everyone is avoiding pasting from Word22:52
aelkneri'm just considering myself on call for the next week to be safe22:53
