Bug fixes

Fixes

Icons & Stars

New Features:

  • Icons: Tables now show subtle icons to indicate recent notes, siblings, and other useful information
  • Star: Any status can be “starred” to support follow-up (which also displays a star icon in tables)

Fixes:

Don’t Repeat Yourself (D.R.Y.) with New Bulk Transition Actions

  • Updates to hidden time machine report (in beta).

Fixes

D.O.B.s Now 94% Faster

Enhancements

  • Shortcut for Birthdates – Instead of having to click the back arrow 36 time to put the D.O.B. for a child, you can now use the dropdown to simply change the year or month. Hopefully this will speed data entry for you and families.
  • Extended ‘state’ saving to the ‘Applied’ table so that it remembers the last classroom you were viewing.
  • quickly enter birthdates dob birth date speed minimal

    Now it’s even easier to enter birth dates!

Fixes

  • Fixed filtering and sorting on the applied/waiting list table

A Large Dose of New Features and a lot of Polishing

Enhancements

  • Emailing List Beta – We added a new report to the list. You may now create a filtered list of email address. You can then copy those emails to your email program like Outlook or Gmail. Either copy the whole table and place it in Excel or double-click on one of the column headers and past the list of address in your email program of choice.
  • Easier Excel Export – There is a new button on the ‘Weekdays Detail’ report. From there you can copy and past the data into Excel. Also, we have replaced the Consumer reports style dots with the ones and zeros. This makes writing Excel formulas, should you choose to do so, a lot easier.
  • Enrolled Students State Save – When viewing the enrolled students, and if you click on the classroom to see the currently enrolled children, the classroom filter will stay put the next time you come back. Assuming you did not come back via the handy classroom shortcut of a specific child.

Fixes

  • Added some admin filtering on the back end
  • Set sort by age on classrooms for enrolled dashboards
