th1ahi replaceafill.17:30
replaceafillhey th1a17:30
th1aHow's it coming?17:30
replaceafillfinished the landing page17:30
replaceafillhold on17:30
replaceafillgonna get a screenshot17:30
th1aOK, cool.17:32
replaceafilladvisors and advisees now filter by group17:33
replaceafillwhile i was running today i was thinking we probably need two versions of the custom export, right?17:34
replaceafillone for advisors and one for clerks?17:34
th1aI was just thinking that too.17:35
th1aHopefully it is fairly easy?17:35
replaceafillyeah, the advisors version should not display the school demographics and just filter by "adivsees" relationship17:35
replaceafilland be available in the landing page ofc17:36
th1aNot display the school demographics?17:37
replaceafillthere's a school demographics field17:37
replaceafilli guess we'll use it as a filter17:38
th1aWhat does that mean?17:38
replaceafillin the clerk version17:38
replaceafillhave you thought about the filters in these reports?17:39
replaceafillit's not just the custom export in peas, right?17:39
replaceafilli mean, by demographics17:39
th1aThis is a "I'm not looking at it" problem...17:40
th1aYou mean, we don't need the whole Select Students section?17:41
th1a(That's what I'm thinking)17:41
replaceafillno, i mean, under Select Students, we need a demographics filter17:42
replaceafillfor instance17:42
replaceafillGrade Level in peas is a relationship17:43
replaceafillin niswonger is just a demo field17:43
replaceafilli mean, the source for the data is just different17:43
th1aI think we're talking past each other.17:44
replaceafillthe Group filter dropdown, becomes School17:44
th1aYes, for the admin.17:45
replaceafillat least we agree we need two versions, right?17:45
th1aAre we talking about the advisor version?17:45
replaceafillboth versions17:45
th1aOK, so here's my initial take:17:45
th1a1) for the admin version, some tweaks are necessary, as you're discussing, and I think you understand exactly what better than I do.17:46
th1a2) I'd just say for the advisor version, we don't need "Select Students" and the report should just run over advisees.17:46
replaceafillyou've talked to them and probably have a better scenario17:47
replaceafillfor instance on how many students an advisor handles17:48
replaceafillif an advisor handles like 100 students17:48
replaceafilli'd leave the Select Students filter17:48
th1aYeah, but it is just a Excel sheet.17:48
replaceafillnot necesarily17:49
replaceafillthe table updates accordingly17:49
th1aI mean, I guess it is probably as much work to take it out as leave it in.17:49
replaceafilli was even thinking the peas version lacks a "Students found: 34" line above17:49
th1aI think it is better without the filter.17:49
replaceafilli guess that's it from me17:51
th1aThey'll be pretty homogenous groups -- mostly all 12th graders, etc.17:51
replaceafilli fixed the urgent issue for Fran17:52
*** menesis has joined #schooltool17:52
replaceafillshe even figured the solution as we discussed it earlier17:52
replaceafillbut i just added the students to the phone limit keys17:52
replaceafillso they'll get the demo17:52
* replaceafill done17:53
th1aOK.  Thanks.17:53
replaceafillso Macedonia is on hold, right?17:53
th1aUntil we hear from them... I suspect it might be too expensive.  We'll see.17:53
th1aAnyhow, don't sweat it.17:54
th1aOK.  I'm starting the September newspaper.  I'll try to get our $0 quarterly VAT return in.17:55
replaceafillis proximity expecting anything from us?17:55
replaceafilla quote?17:55
th1aJust finish this and then we'll deal.  Quote first.17:56
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:59
* th1a is going to get a haircut.17:59
