Enhanced Search

NOTE: plugins have been removed until an update is available. The old versions can cause slowness from District Office for some districts. When a new version is ready that version will be available for download and it should be even better. Thanks! If you have installed and are seeing slowness please uninstall until the new version is available

Over the years people have asked me for the extra search features I have on my test box. Now that we can use page fragments to add pieces in I'm a little more comfortable publishing these for everyone.

International Schools

While this may not apply to most of you I wanted to put a message out to any districts from outside the United States and Canada. US and CA schools have a lot in common and in general get to handle things in a "standard" way. By standard I'm referring to the fact that the majority of PowerSchool districts are from either the USA or Canada. But what about those schools outside those borders? There is an international user who I would trust for your non-North American needs and that is Romy Backus.

PTP Custom Log Pages

About:
Adds a log entry screen to PowerTeacher Pro gradebook. After successful submission the teacher is directed to a list of log entries that they submitted about that student.

What's New in Version 1.0.2
Fixed the localization tag in the list menu

Note:
The list page will only show a teacher logs where they are the author. Some extra detail does show up in the list which might be useful as followup information.

Change History
V 1.0.2 - Released 2016-10-19

PTP Cumulative Info Example

About:
A simple PowerTeacher Pro page that adds the cumulative info screen to the Students jewel in the gradebook. Contains comments in the file for learning purposes. Used in the PTP customization classes at PSUG events.

What's New in Version 1.0.0
This is the initial publication of the custom cumulative info screen for PowerTeacher Pro. If you've taken a PTP customization class at a PSUG event this is the first page we go over and has notes commented throughout.

Collapsed Student Menu

Is your student menu too big for your users? Does it show several sections that they don't even need? Do you have pages in the custompages area that are a pain to get to? Collapsed Student Menu might be for you.

One Stop Attendance

About:
Attendance screen that allows for the search and edit of attendance records all from one screen. Users can search for attendance by code, all codes, daily, meeting, all present codes, all absent codes, etc.

What's New in Version 5.1.1
In this version we updated the page to use the slide out box rather than a new popup window when doing a new record or an edit record. We also fixed the issue causing comments not to store properly for meeting attendance. Special thanks to Romy Backus for her suggestions

Custom Reports Bundle Misc

About
This plugin will add the misc reports to the custom reports bundle base. Note: the base plugin will need to be installed before you will see these reports automatically appear.

Enhanced Legacy Fields

About
Moving from legacy fields to database extensions is complicated. There are fields we aren't allowed to move, fields that were already moved, and fields that will be created by core migration 1 and 2. Looking at a list of legacy custom fields doesn't really tell you which ones are available for migration. CLG's Enhanced Legacy Fields is a customization that aims to help.
