replaceafillth1a, i'm just missing the breadcrumbs fix for dwelsh17:41
replaceafilli'll start that after i finish my breakfast :)17:41
replaceafillth1a, zyt?18:15
th1ahi replaceafill.18:16
replaceafillth1a, question18:16
replaceafilldo you think the breadcrumb is enough to show the section?18:16
replaceafillif i put the section title in the page title,18:16
th1aWhat else would be in it?18:16
replaceafilli have "Social Skills Score" and the student name to put somewhere18:17
replaceafilli could make the breadcrumb:18:18
replaceafillSection -> CanDo -> Student -> page title18:18
replaceafillso, is it ok like this (screenshot)?18:19
th1aI think so, since we really want people to mostly get here via the gradebook.18:21
th1aotoh, we should make a note to make these individual reports link to the person view.18:21
th1aWe might need to make more dynamic breadcrumbs at that point.18:22
replaceafilldwelsh, you should change the default password for admins in the social skills instance ;)18:27
replaceafillbreadcrumbs fix deployed18:30
*** replaceafill has quit IRC20:21

dwelshdwelsh is checking fixes, and will change password20:28
dwelshreplaceafill: still there?20:56
replaceafilldwelsh, yes20:56
dwelshlooks great... breadcrumbs and colors.20:56
dwelshAre we thinking to NOT put local section title in header?20:57
dwelshi.e. Section description20:57
dwelshIn header of Score (Social Skill) view and Summary Form, I mean.20:57
replaceafillthe problem i had with it is that we have 3 pieces of information20:58
replaceafillsection info, view name and student20:58
replaceafillmaybe we could get rid of the "view name"?20:59
replaceafilli'm not sure how to handle it20:59
replaceafillisn't the breadcrumb enough?20:59
replaceafillto know what section you're looking at?20:59
dwelshthe breadcrumb has course and not section title, right now.21:03
dwelshthe section title is the thing.21:03
replaceafillhhmm the breadcrumb should have the section title21:05
replaceafilllet me see21:05
dwelshyou have title now, and NOT description21:07
replaceafillcorrect, the breadcrumb shows the section title21:08
replaceafill"2) Important to put section title at top of Score (Social Skills) form and at the top of Section Summary form.  In addition, we should show bread crumbs at the top of this form."21:09
th1aIt should be title.21:11
dwelshin CanDo 2011 it was section description21:16
dwelshin the reports we did "title:description"21:16
dwelshWhere is "Social Skills Score" coming from?21:18
dwelshEspecially the "Social Skills" part?21:18
replaceafilldwelsh, it's just a hard coded title for the page21:18
th1aThat can be the section title though too.21:18
dwelshI would do21:18
dwelshline 1:  Section Title: Section Description21:19
dwelshline 2:  Score for (lastname, firstname)21:19
th1aWe can't put the description in that giant font.21:19
th1aIt shouldn't be necessary anyhow.21:19
dwelsh"Social Skills Score" is not helpful... a waste of space21:20
* replaceafill goes to set up a testing instance...21:20
th1aI think we've already agreed with you on that dwelsh.21:20
dwelshand we have the Section Title in the breadcrumb, so that's very helpful21:21
dwelshI guess I'm asking, can't we get the description in there somewhere?21:21
dwelshThat's the local title... the one by which most instructors know the section21:21
th1aThat's just the way you're using it.21:22
dwelshSo are you tempted to replace "Social Skills Score" with "(Section Title) Score"21:22
th1aI think I've agreed to that at least twice.21:23
dwelshok.  I'm still catching up here.21:24
dwelshbrief hangout?21:25
dwelsh(dwelsh needs to leave in 9 mins.)21:28
dwelshSo the way I used title was something short and aimed at the official state title21:29
dwelshthe way I use description is the more descriptive (and usually longer) local description21:29
dwelshfor the social skills instance, I can just title the course, Social Skills I: Foundational Skills21:30
dwelshbecause there is not state course21:30
replaceafillth1a, dwelsh as teacher00121:49
replaceafillsection title as page title21:49
th1aI don't know that we need "Score for" in there.21:50
replaceafillget rid of it?21:50
th1aYeah, also, shouldn't the student be first?21:50
dwelshyes, I would.21:51
dwelshThose are obviously scores21:51
replaceafillcool, updating the instance21:53
replaceafillok, change deployed21:56
aelknerth1a, hey, can you discuss year security real quick before you need to leave for dinner?22:49
