Release notes 2.1.7

Release Date: 
Tuesday, 2 August 2011

Improvements

  • For the NAT00085 AVETMISS exports we previously added a field to onCourse called “title”, so this will now export any data you have entered in the title field in the NAT00085 file. We have also added a rule that will export Mr where gender = male and Ms where gender = female if no title has been entered. Only students without a gender or title will still export blank titles for AVETMISS purposes. This is particularly important in Tasmania where they have a special validation rule for this which no other state does.
  • Changed the VET course validation rules to allow courses to be created with units of competency but no reference to a qualification. This will allow the creation of Skill Set courses. In addition, the new style templates for Statements of Attainment allow you to reference a skills set by adding ‘public notes’ to the certificate face. Customers with custom templates may want to review their certificate options in light of this new AQF requirement.
  • Release of 64bit Windows Service Application, to take full advantage of RAM availabilities in high intensity environments

Major fixes

  • Errors relating to tutor wages and tax amounts, preventing class duplication, adding new wage lines to budgets and merging contacts have been resolved
  • Data upgrade to amount owing for invoices to resolve problems with user interface showing an incorrect balance that may conflict with printed report amounts
  • Fixed a race condition that stops large message lists from building in a timely manner. This was preventing high volume messages from being created.
  • Fixed an issue with the display not updating when email messages had been sent successfully, resulting in messages showing queued status even after successful sending
  • Exporting to CSV would sometimes fail due with problematic data.
  • Fixed validation problems where units could be deleted or changed in a student record, but changes would revert on save and record re-open. Units can again be successfully deleted or modified from the student enrolment record as required.

Minor fixes

  • Corrected use of class core filters running in combination with tag record filters, to show expected results. Selecting cancelled classes was not correctly populating results.
  • Fixed results for subject filters in tutors list to mean ‘tutors teaching classes linked to courses tagged with…’
  • Fixed bug that allowed you to open a dialog within a dialog (class > enrolment > outcome > add) but not let you save changes. Dialog within dialog opening is now prevented, records can be accessed and modified via other methods.
  • Postcodes in the North Territory would export to AVETMISS 85 as three digits rather than four.
  • Enabled ability for users to deleted unprinted certificate records. Printed certificates can not be deleted for auditing purposes.
  • Ensure file extensions are correctly rendered even when user preferences have disabled system wide file extension display
