Once the Alternate Bell Schedule is configured, the corresponding PDF that is generated for each student is also updated.

Lunch Order App Improvements

The Lunch Ordering screen for parents have been improved. You should no longer see blank screens. And, we now display totals along the top:

We’ll continue to tweak this screen, to make the information clearer and more meaningful for parents. Please feel free to share your comments.

Online Form Improvements

In additional to better SVG support for cross browser compatibility, we’ve also added a new filter to the Online Forms module, so you can easily view which fields have been mapped when a student record is enrolled:
