Bulk Email Report Cards

We now have a new feature where you can bulk email report cards to parents. Just select the report cards you want to send out (under “Report Cards” > “Report Cards”), and use the check box on the top right corner, and select “Email Report Card”:

Gradebook

You can now disallow teachers from editing gradebooks from previous terms. From the “Settings” page (under “Turn Features On / Off”), simply configure the Gradebook module to “Disallow teachers from editing gradebook for non-active semesters”:

Disallow Gradebook for Non-Active Terms

Be sure to include any administrative users who should continue to have edit access to gradebooks for inactive terms. Once enabled, the “Edit anyways” button that is typically visible to teachers will be removed:

Fee Tracking Payment Allocation

When the balance on a account is zero, there is now a convenient “Auto-Allocate” button that will allow you to quickly auto-allocate all unallocated payments to all unpaid invoices:

Right now, this button is only available when accessing a Fee Tracking account. But eventually, will allow users to bulk auto-allocate accounts as well. Please try it out, and send us your feedback.
