Adhoc Reporting

Today’s Date Student Ad Hoc Fields Added  

The following ad hoc fields were added to the student view to allow for reporting today’s date values in ad hoc and messenger tools:

  • student.currentDate
  • student.currentdatePrintFormat

Calendars

Ability to Delete Unwanted Calendars

With proper assigned tool rights, users can now delete calendars that were created in error or as part of the scheduling process and are no longer needed using the new Mark for Deletion option on Calendar Details and the new Delete Calendar tool.

This process is two-fold.

Marking a for deletion (Calendar Details). This means a user can select a particular calendar to be deleted and add a comment as to why it's being deleted. The calendar can also be unmarked for deletion.

Removal of calendars that are marked for deletion (Delete Calendar). This involves viewing a list of calendars that have been marked for deletion, validating those calendars, previewing the calendars, deleting those calendars, and printing a report of those deleted calendars.

 

A user who marks a calendar for deletion may not be the same person who performs the deletion of calendars. Those responsible for scheduling may have the ability to mark unwanted calendars for deletion, but the Campus Administrator may be the one who performs the removal of calendars. Tool rights are required for both the Mark Calendar for Deletion process and Delete Calendars process. See the articles in campus community for information on tool rights.

Parents in districts with both Campus Learning and Campus Messenger licenses have the option of enabling this Alexa skill if they so choose. The same district-managed Portal Preferences and other settings that determine what displays in Campus Parent also apply to data accessed through the Infinite Campus Alexa Skill. Parents in districts with licenses to both products will see a notification in Campus Parent that the Infinite Campus Alexa Skill is available. Parents may then choose to configure the connection to Alexa by following the instructions in Campus Parent.
