September 12 to September 16, 2016 Release Notes

Features & Improvements

We're working on lots of stuff right now. As evidence, a blog post about something we're about to release!

Added some variables to ID cards that let you include your custom info fields on them.

In other custom info field news, the Data Slicer can now fetch file-type custom fields, complete with a link to download the file from the report.

Considerably improved the payment gateway setup for multi-currency schools. I'd love to be more specific, but seriously, this stuff is so esoteric that I may as well just quote you something from Finnegan's Wake:

This is the hinndoo waxing ranjymad for a bombshoob. This is the Willingdone hanking the half of the hat of lipoleums up the tail on the buckside of his big white harse. Tip. That was the last joke of Willingdone. Hit, hit, hit! This is the same white harse of the Willingdone, Culpenhelp, waggling his tailoscrupp with the half of a hat of lipoleums to insoult on the hinndoo see-boy. Hney, hney, hney!

Less esoteric (lessoteric? mmm nope): we now changelog when someone sets a student's assignment grade to Excused.


Found a bug that could (and sometimes did) change all discussion text into italics, and then we punched it in its stupid face.

Uncovered a rare circumstance that could exclude a 1098-T eligible application fee from the 1098-T; and rather than just cover it back up like an irresponsible journalist, we fixed the problem like a bunch of earnest Boy Scouts.

Made it possible to delete internal comments on application questions.

Fixed some performance issues with bulk-adding Communication Plans to a large group of Leads.

Fixed some other performance issues with video playback quality in course lessons, et. al.

Barcode-scanning in Library started doing this thing where every time you scanned something, it flipped itself over to non-scanning mode. None of the jokes I thought of for this were succinct enough to include in these release notes.

Students could be marked Resident Alien when you imported an application for them—even when citizenship was set to AMERICA. Joel found the culprit and did his judge-jury-executioner thing with it.

We're not as strident about deleting files as we once were. Deleted files are still kinda hard to get to, but gotten they can be, which is more than we used to be able to say.

Fixed a math error that double-counted applied aid payments on the financial dashboard summary panel.

Nixed an access-denied error that could bare its teeth when you clicked to email a mailing list and then removed a recipient from the message.
