replaceafillhey th1a17:34
th1ahad to take julia in for a quick check that ran late.17:34
th1aGive me 10 minutes.17:34
th1aOK... just a perforated ear drum.17:44
th1aHow are you replaceafill?17:44
replaceafillhope she gets better soon17:44
replaceafillfinished the mailing labels for sections17:45
replaceafillalmost done with the custom reports17:45
replaceafillare we going to discuss:17:46
th1aShould we just do a table with a student in each row and a column for each attendance status?17:48
replaceafillisn't that what we have?17:49
replaceafillstudent, period, period, period, period17:49
replaceafillwant to see a screenshot?17:50
replaceafillkk, hold on17:50
th1aMake sure we're talking about the same thinkg.17:50
replaceafillthat's the current absences by day report17:52
replaceafillthat only asks for a date17:52
replaceafillignore the weird date, i forced the report out :)17:53
th1aOh, right, yes, periods...17:53
replaceafillso for a multi date i was thinking just to repeat the table for each date17:54
replaceafilland print the date instead of "Absences" title17:54
th1aOne thing that jumps out at me now is that the title of this report is wrong.17:54
replaceafillOctober 117:54
th1aIt should be attendance by day.17:54
replaceafillgood point17:55
replaceafillit reports tardies now17:55
replaceafillnot just absences17:55
* replaceafill writes that down17:55
th1aThat's fine.17:55
th1aWe have to distill this somehow though to do a ranged version.17:55
th1aLet's call the new one "Absences for Range of Dates"17:56
th1aAnd simply put the number of absences in each grid position instead of the code.17:57
replaceafillah, so it'll be an aggregate report17:57
replaceafillthat's all i have th1a18:00
th1aOK, so do we want to package this up next?18:00
replaceafillah sure18:01
replaceafillshoot for wednesday?18:01
replaceafillso i can show you samples tomorrow18:01
th1aSounds good.18:01
th1aOK, I have various loose ends to straighten out.  I'm going to get Matt going tomorrow on just a little section on reports, which are not explicitly explained in the docs.18:04
th1aFor you, the new ARK reports then... new school page?18:04
replaceafilldid ARK answer your "comments/reply" email?18:05
replaceafillthe one with the docx attachment with your notes?18:05
replaceafillso we'll start with the few reports they sent18:06
th1aYes, just knock those out.18:06
replaceafillgot it18:06
replaceafillthat's a good switch18:06
th1aI also have Matt looking at the School page design for some fresh eyes.18:07
th1aOK, thanks replaceafill.18:08
