PCSchool has added the ability to reset individual or specific templates. Previously when adding new controls to user templates you were only able to reset the main default user template for Staff, Students or Caregivers.
Now via our updated ‘Administration’ control in the Spider system administrators can select any template type (Dean, Nurse, Senior teacher, Junior teacher etc).
Available in PCSchool version 2014.03.03 and above.
PCSchool has now added the ability for schools to include additional text / instructions at the top of the Parent Payment Portal view. This option allows schools to include instructions to parents on how to use the payment portal and when the payment is expected to be processed and applied to their outstanding fees.
Option to add text to Payment Portal is found in the Administration control – Update Configuration File in the Spider.
PCSchool payment portal currently emails a default staff member (accounts receivable) when a payment has been made by a parent. This has now been extended to the Donation Portal to allow for a different staff member to receive notification when a donation has been made via the donation portal.
Options for payment email notifications are found in the Administration control – Update Configuration File in the Spider.
PCSchool now allows schools to hide the various tabs within the Student Information View in Spider. This means, for example, that you can hide the Medical Conditions tab or Special Needs tab from students when they enter the Student Information View in Spider.
Options to hide the various tabs are found in the Administration control – Update Configuration File in the Spider.
PCSchool has enhanced the integration between the Spider Calendar and Assessment Criteria information when adding assessment task due dates to the calendar.
Previously when publishing assessment due dates to the Calendar, via the Subject and Assessment Criteria control in Spider, it only allowed the date, item description and an attachment. Now the ‘Criteria’ information for that task will also be displayed in the Calendar.
In addition, any attachments to assessment items in the Calendar will now open in a new window.
PCSchool has added several new enhancements to the Parent Teacher Interviews in the Spider Web Application.
1. ‘Time gap between each slot’ did only allow a single digit (eg up to 9 minutes) now allows two digits (eg up to 99 minutes)
2. NEW option to create interviews based on Timetable Phases. This means that schools who use a single Subject Period ID and they want to create interviews based on the subjects studied by the students in the second half of the year they can.
3. Option for ‘individuals who can book simultaneous interviews’ has been increased from one digit (eg up to 9) to two digits (eg up to 99).
4. NEW option that will force parents to book alternate slots. This can be used by schools who do not want parents to book slots one after the other, but forces them to book a slot, miss a slot, book a slot, miss a slot etc).
