Presentation   2018   October

October

At Foliotek, we work hard to provide the best assessment and portfolio software possible.  To do that, we make changes every week.  Sometimes we fix things that don't work, other times we release new features to improve your experience.  Below you will find a description of the changes we have made this month.

 

10.22.2018

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • Sorry...nothing new this week.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • Our inline document screenshot server was not taking screenshots of newly uploaded documents.  The fix for this is not necessarily retroactive.  If you come across an inline document that doesn't have a screenshot, please remove the document and re-upload it.  If you see either of these messages on an inline document in a portfolio, you need to remove and re-add the document.

Inline Document Screenshots

  • If an administrator attempted to preview an evaluation that had been set up, the preveiw window was very small.
  • The arrow buttons for the next page of evaluations were incorrect when an administrator was viewing a list of evaluations.
  • The 'merge changes' button in the Merge pop-up box inside the Portfolio editor was not working.
  • Attempting to reorder pages in a Portfolio was not working.
  • A user's dashboard was not showing the complete ID page preview image.
  • If someone left feedback on a user's ID page, there was no indicator that the message was being sent.  Now a 'loading' spinner appears to reassure the viewer that something is happening.

What we're working on

Watch for these items to be released in the next few weeks:

  • Still working on the ability to better handle large image files uploaded by users.

  • M4V files were not being properly uploaded to Project pages.
  • The 'Records' tab of the Portfolio Form report was not properly displaying users who had completed the form and then had the form reset administratively.

What's new

We released some new features and upgrades this week:

  • Nothing new this week.

What we fixed

These issues were fixed this past week:

  • We made an adjustment to the default settings of the Student Checkpoint Report.  Now it does not include expectation scores on the evaluations.  There is a new option to allow administrators to choose to run this report and pull the expectation scores for the evaluations.
