replaceafillhey th1a, th1a_19:28
th1aHi replaceafill.19:28
replaceafillsorry i'm late19:28
replaceafillbut i'll show you wy19:28
replaceafillgive me a moment19:28
replaceafilli'll set up an instance19:28
* replaceafill tries something19:29
replaceafillth1a, can you try
replaceafillthat's my laptop :)19:31
replaceafilland then go to /courses19:31
th1aI'm in!19:32
* th1a downloading your porn collection...19:33
th1aVery cleverly hidden replaceafill.19:33
th1aSo... ?19:34
replaceafillall the canvas courses, sections and enrollments are there19:34
replaceafillwith people synced, etc19:35
*** th1a_ has quit IRC19:37
th1aDid you stay up working on this?19:37
*** replaceafill has quit IRC19:41
*** replaceafill has joined #schooltool19:43
replaceafillth1a, ?19:43
replaceafilli was disconnected19:43
th1aAnyhow, looks good.19:43
th1aDid you stay up working on that?19:43
replaceafillit took like 4-5 hours (research included)19:44
th1aOK... How much more should we say?19:46
replaceafillok, are we going to try grades?19:46
replaceafilli guess we could try19:46
th1aYeah, we should.19:47
replaceafillalso, i made a few assumptions with this19:48
replaceafilland we need to define the workflow19:48
replaceafillwhere is the user doing this from, etc19:48
th1aRealistically this is mostly a cron-type thing?19:48
replaceafilli was thinking that the only interaction we need from the user is to define what year everything is landing to19:49
replaceafilli used the active year here19:50
replaceafilland the active year had a set "2015_16" schooltool id to match the canvas side19:50
replaceafilli also set up the term manually19:50
replaceafillto span the whole year19:50
replaceafilli guess some of these assumptions may not work for proximity19:51
th1aI think they will.19:51
replaceafilli was thinking at least of putting the link to manually do this in the courses page or whatever19:51
replaceafilli mean, in a school year context19:51
replaceafillwe could probably ask19:51
th1aI'd just put it on the Canvas Integration panel.19:52
replaceafillit's there19:52
th1aThat should be fine.19:52
replaceafillgo to /canvas19:52
replaceafilli was even thinking of showing a dialog19:54
replaceafillto match schooltool year with canvas terms19:54
th1aThat might be more than they need.19:54
th1aI can ask.19:54
replaceafilloh, i need to put people in the right groups too19:55
replaceafilllike instructors added to the teachers group19:55
replaceafilland i found a bug19:55
replaceafillwith the name choosers19:55
replaceafillit's not a *bug*19:55
th1aYou don't really even need to add them to those groups, although you might as well.19:55
replaceafillit's a... inconsistency?19:55
replaceafillok, let's ask that too19:55
replaceafillit's for navigational purposes19:56
replaceafillthey complained about it19:56
replaceafill(kind of)19:56
replaceafillthey were probably expecting canvas teachers landing in the teachers group, etc19:56
replaceafilland that's not that difficult anyway19:56
replaceafilloh btw19:56
replaceafillthis is all a big single task19:56
replaceafillso, it's an all-or-nothing proces19:57
replaceafilland expensive19:57
replaceafillone thing i do want to do19:57
replaceafillis to add some progress bars19:57
th1aOh, just do the groups thing.19:57
th1aWe don't want this to go too quick.  ;-)19:58
replaceafilli was expecting a couple of days without grades19:58
replaceafilli think we're still in that range19:58
th1aYes.  I'll say we've got a very good start and it'll be less than a week.19:58
replaceafillwhat do you think of some progress information19:59
replaceafillnot necessarily bars19:59
replaceafillbut something that says: syncing math course enrollments19:59
replaceafillsyncing algebra course enrollments19:59
replaceafillbecause currently there's no feedback of the task progress20:00
th1aYes, that would be good.20:00
replaceafilljust initial message, completed message, or failure20:00
replaceafillok, i think i'll keep working on this20:00
replaceafilli mean, there's no urgent fran issues :)20:00
replaceafillsaw the report card mail?20:00
replaceafillusers.... :/20:01
* th1a sighs.20:01
replaceafilli guess that's it from me20:02
th1aOK.  Thanks replaceafill.  I'll send an email.20:02
replaceafillthanks th1a20:02
* replaceafill turns off port forwarding :P20:03
th1aOoohh... not done with the download!20:04
th1areplaceafill,: ayt?20:24
replaceafillth1a, yes20:25
th1aSo there aren't multiple years in Canvas?20:26
replaceafillenrollment terms20:26
