This release adds a number of improvements to the Student Journey Report. We continue to work with beta testing partner schools to ensure this new reporting tool provides a better understanding of how students use online resources and access information.
We have also enhanced our configuration pages by improving the way users view data, while squashing a few bugs along the way.
In this edition of School Manager, you can now filter and rearrange data by table headings in ascending or descending order. The sorting feature is also available to MDNS Bridge and Networking Interfaces configuration pages.
The Firewall configuration page also lets you move firewall rules up and down the list, letting you prioritize certain rules in the system. Simply click the Move (+) icon and drag the rule up or down.
With focus on students’ cyber safety, we’ve introduced better ways for School Manager users to access, review, and export reports.
On the Red Flags page, the most severe or common risk indicators are presented at the top by default. In addition, users can sort Red Flags reports by username or full name in alphabetical order, making it easier to locate and track individual students in schools with bigger student populations.
On the Student Journey Report, the latest data are placed at the top of the web page and, as in other reports, users can sort data according to column headings:
We’ve made it possible for users to keep track of the character limit as they enter their comments before generating PDF versions of Student Journey Reports. The notification appears when there are only 50 characters (or less) left in the Cover Page Comment field, or if the character limit has been exceeded.
By adding comments in exported Student Journey Reports, administrators and relevant staff can highlight the most salient points of their students’ online journeys.
We fixed a previously reported issue with exported Student Journey Report where the times recorded did not match the School Manager device’s location. Now the Student Journey Report reflects the time zone of the School Manager device, making exported data accurate and mroe relevant to school administrators and reporting staff. The Time/Date column on the Student Journey page also features this update.
We streamlined the list of Classwize configuration features, so watch this space for more updates.
