th1ahi replaceafill, mobert.17:30
replaceafillgood morning17:30
th1aOK, so we got some general feedback from Uguanda.17:31
replaceafillah great17:32
replaceafillsielibre mail?17:32
replaceafillah nm17:32
replaceafillwill we go through the doc?17:33
th1aYeah, we can talk through it and I'll write a reply.17:34
th1aIt just kind of goes through by tab.17:34
replaceafillthey don't want pdfs17:35
th1aThey want some *other* excel reports, likely.17:36
th1aThe ones we did are necessary.17:36
th1aTo give to parents.17:36
th1aThey don't want a receipt in excel.17:36
th1aOr if they do...17:37
th1aThese are pretty much general SchoolTool questions.17:38
th1aMaybe you should just point out any you think require some discussion.17:38
replaceafillwhat about the "downloadable from the home page" part?17:39
replaceafillCalendar seems straight questions17:40
replaceafillnot sure what they mean by queries on the Server tab17:41
th1aWe're moving toward that anyhow, with the new school page.  It also depends on what they're actually talking about.17:41
th1aI'll point out that for a person report you need to find the person either way.17:41
th1aI suspect they just want a school-wide spreadsheet of some sort.17:41
replaceafillwe'll probably need a custom peas po template17:42
replaceafillfor the change from "tardy" to "late"17:43
th1aOr just a new score system.17:43
th1aIf that was the only thing.17:43
replaceafilli think we use tardy/tardies as presentation strings17:43
replaceafillcolumns in the gradebook17:43
replaceafillreports and report card probably17:44
replaceafilli'll look17:44
th1aOh, yeah, sure.17:44
th1aWe'll probably need that anyhow.17:44
replaceafilli guess the "not always logical navigation" would be solved by the new school view?17:45
replaceafillah cool, they liked the school reports :)17:46
replaceafillin the Journals part, "What does the chart actually show"...17:47
replaceafillwhat chart?17:47
th1aI don't think they have any sections scheduled so the whole thing is probably empty.17:48
* replaceafill starts kicking himself for using *his* sample data...17:48
replaceafilli only use a couple of days (mondays)17:49
replaceafillso it's easier to know if the calculations are correct17:49
replaceafillsome good points on filters17:51
th1aOK, so you fixed a bug?17:51
replaceafillthe journal bug?17:51
replaceafillyes, almost done with it17:52
th1aThis? Same issue with the ‘day report’ as with the teacher attendance – only shows Mondays?17:53
replaceafillthat's a problem with the term i set up for the demo17:53
replaceafillit only contains mondays as school days17:53
th1aOh, the demo.17:54
th1aIt isn't a bug.17:54
th1aI thought you meant your test data only had mondays so you didn't know the rest of the days were broken.17:54
replaceafilli used just a few days17:54
th1aThat's fine.17:57
th1aOK, so essentially this doesn't impact our immediate plans.17:59
th1aWe still don't have the reports.17:59
th1aAnd it doesn't seem like they've used fees yet.17:59
replaceafillthey expected both igas and fees at the top17:59
th1aWell, I'm not necessarily in favor of that.18:00
th1aI'll make a case against it.18:00
th1aIf you're worried about navigating back to School, you don't want 10 things in the top bar.18:01
th1aI'll point out that we're re-doing the School page as soon as we can get to it anyhow.18:03
th1aWhere are you now?18:05
replaceafilli'm adding a test for the journal bug18:05
replaceafilli should be done with it today18:06
replaceafilland will create a package in my ppa18:06
replaceafillto test18:06
replaceafillth1a, did you read David Ally's report?18:08
th1aDidn't seem to require any immediate action.18:12
replaceafillah ok, well, glad to see the customization is at least being talked about :)18:13
th1aBy PEAS?18:14
replaceafillno, nigeria18:14
th1aWell, also good to hear from PEAS.18:16
th1aOK, so you're set for today?18:19
th1aAfter this, those simple reports?18:19
th1aThanks replaceafill.18:20
replaceafillthanks th1a18:21
* replaceafill goes to get a quick breakfast, bb ~2018:21
