Features & Improvements
Some of you have some pretty funny letter grades. One school uses Latin abbreviations—so an A there goes by CL (for Cum Laude, for one example). Another particularly irritating school replaced all their B and C grades with quotations from Moby Dick. Sooner or later one of you is probably gonna ask for emoji grades.
The reason I'm going on about this is because A) we released a feature this week that prevents you from editing your own grade scales if you have these fancy alternate letter grades (y'all have just been clamoring for such a thing, haven't you?) and B) that's the only feature we released this week and I'm just filling up space to make it look like I'm typing something important whenever the bosses float past my desk.
Oh, and just to be clear, you can still modify those grade scales—you just have to ask us to do so because it involves some fancy databasery. And also, don't feel bad about your weird letter grades.
I guess this is a feature, too: Now if a withdrawal counts towards SAP, the status of that course will be displayed as Withdrawn and Mapped instead of Withdrawn Late (which could potentially be untrue).
getApplications call was throwing errors for no good reason when you bugged it for submitted applications.
The TRACS Annual Operating Report was erroneously including auditing and withdrawn students among "enrolled students" under certain conditions.
Cloning applications wouldn't also clone any files that were linked in text fields.
