th1ahi replaceafill.17:31
replaceafillhey th1a17:31
th1aHow are you feeling?17:31
th1aso, I'm replying to Anthony Nelson's attendance bugs via email.17:33
th1aDid you get those?17:33
th1aYou at least need the screenshots...17:34
th1aOK, I just forwarded them.17:36
th1aI have a meeting with Steven today, btw.17:36
replaceafillah good17:36
replaceafillcould you provide some context on Anthony's bugs?17:37
replaceafilltardy for instance17:37
replaceafilli see that it's set as present...17:37
th1aWell, they may be the first school fully using SchoolTool attendance...17:38
replaceafillbut he expects it to be calculated as tardy?17:38
th1aWell... let me look at that again.17:38
replaceafillJournal legend.png + DoubleEntry.png17:39
th1aBlue is the homeroom attendance?17:39
th1aThis would be looking at the section attendance?17:40
th1aShouldn't the student be counted as tardy for the section?17:40
th1aI see.17:40
th1aHe made tardy = present.17:40
th1aNot tardy = tardy.17:41
th1aOK, that's straightforward enough.17:41
th1aTardy is a possibly report as, right?17:41
th1aI mean...17:42
th1aI'll look.17:42
th1aOK, just confirming that "Tardy" is a reporting category.17:42
replaceafilli think the mismatch about the 05 missing17:43
th1aI confused you with the obviousness of my question.17:43
replaceafillis related to timezones :(17:43
replaceafilldo you know where he is?17:43
replaceafilliirc the school attendance view calculates days differently than journal sections17:44
th1aI figured.17:44
th1aThat needs to be tidied up.17:45
th1aOK, so this is simpler than I thought, aside from needing to fix how day attendance calculates days.17:47
th1aAlthough, wait, what is this clerk view?17:47
replaceafillschool attendance?17:48
th1aIs this PEAS?17:48
replaceafillJournal tab for clerks17:48
replaceafillwe based Teacher/Student attendance for PEAS on it17:48
th1aI think I forgot this view existed.17:48
th1aHomeroom attendance?17:48
replaceafillit affects homeroom17:49
replaceafillhomeroom sections display the homeroom view, which shows the same data17:49
replaceafillthis mismatch is a good bug for extending test coverage in the journal :)17:50
th1aThis is homeroom attendance, not section attendance.17:50
replaceafillthe clerk view? yes17:51
th1aOK, I've forgotten about this.  ;-)17:51
th1aWhen you right things that nobody uses.17:51
th1aIt happens!17:51
th1aWhy don't you start with that, then.17:53
th1aI got someone asking about adding student info columns in the journal, which is kind of what Rich wanted with the Alert thing in his report.17:54
th1aThey wanted to add an ID column essentially.17:54
replaceafillah yes17:54
replaceafilli saw17:54
replaceafillso, in your bug, do you mean any demographics field?17:55
th1aThat would be the most reasonable approach, I think.17:55
replaceafillgot it17:55
th1aSo maybe that could be folded into the end of this little report project.17:57
th1aOr not.17:57
replaceafilli also think we should make a release of the journal after fixing this bug17:57
th1aIt seems like we're going to have a lot of little things continuing to come in because, USERS.17:57
replaceafilli plan to work on the weekend btw17:58
replaceafillsince i missed the last couple of days17:58
th1aIf you feel it is necessary.17:59
replaceafillth1a, i wonder what these other files are in Anthony's email17:59
th1aI'd rather you rested up while you can.17:59
replaceafillParte1.6, etc17:59
th1aI have a feeling they're some kind of ghost images.17:59
th1aBut we'll see.17:59
th1aLike, weird copies of the other ones.17:59
replaceafillyeah, probably18:00
th1aI'll reply to him.18:00
replaceafilli also just followed the thread from Surinam (i think)18:00
replaceafillfor the import grades script18:00
th1aI think we'll eventually get that sorted...18:01
th1aIt briefly looked hopeless yesterday.18:01
th1aSo don't work through the weekend unless we get that squared away tomorrow...18:01
th1aYou may be rushing to do that before the end of the month, so I'd rather have you fresh.18:02
th1aOK, we should be set, and hopefully I'll wire your first payment this week.18:04
th1aThanks replaceafill.18:05
replaceafillthanks th1a18:05
