Features & Improvements
The Export Helper (which also caused a bunch of trouble this week as described in Bugfixes, below) got new options for Specialization Type and Degree Catalog Year.
Added a whole mess of columns to the Term Book List export: Course Number, Course Name, Department, Section Number, Term, ISBN, Title, Author, Publisher, and Required*. Also changed "Opt." to the more legible "Optional".
You can now filter Academic Term > Faculty by "Faculty" and "Teaching Assistant", as well as Enrollments and Auditors.
getPerson API call can now tell you whether a person's contact info is public or private.
Maybe you didn't notice it, but we sure did (eventually): the Action menu on the Donors report had duplicated Print Yearly Summary options.
The Program filters in Academics > Reporting > Analytics weren't working, like, at all, man.
Cleaned up a bunch of junk that was causing the Unpaid Invoices report to barf (that's a technical term) when you exported it using the Export Helper.
That lousy Export Helper! It was also producing export-related nausea when you included Middle Names in the exports for the Payments/Refunds and the Charges/Credits reports.
When we released Dark Mode, we forgot to exclude embeds.
Library label export filenames included the dishonest and misleading word Editable, so we scratched that out of the code.
