Custom Reports Bundle Base 4.0.1

The Custom Reports Bundle is a collection of custom html reports and dashboards for PowerSchool. The content in this bundle has been contributed by several members of the PowerSchool customization community.

Enhanced Search

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.

Enhanced Parent Portal

Please Note;
Version 3.0->3.1.1 is only for 7.0.0
Version 3.1.2 is only for 7.0.1+
Version 4.0 is only for 8.0+

IMPORTANT - PowerSchool no longer allows students to edit their own student record. Because of this 1x Class Registration ONLY works when logged in as a Guardian. Students will have full Class Registration ability if 1x is enabled. I am unsure of what version this happened in, just fyi.

This is a new Parent Portal with more options for student screens.

Find Me Alert Plugin

There are many times when we need to find out where a student is at the current moment in time. Normally it’s a bit of a process where you need to search for the student, look at his/her schedule for the current date, figure out what period you are in, then figure out where that student is during that period. Well this alert makes it much easier. With this alert you can see exactly where the student is supposed to be at the current moment in time.

CRB Old to New

Some people have been wondering how to get their custom reports they built into the new CRB. I'll try and give some instruction here.

CRB Plugins not installing properly

Many people have stated that they have had issues installing the plugins. Some have said they were able to install SQLReports4 as a plugin without any problem. Other have found no work around. Yesterday I worked with a school who found that they were able to install the plugins if they downloaded from a windows computer rather than their mac. Once this was revealed to me it seemed like I should let people know in case you are also having issues.

Dynamic Dropdown Plugin

For years I've been using my own small customization to add drop down control to pages. I used it for cities, states, salutations, etc. After my list grew too large I customized it again to more manageable and a single page. This plugin attempts to do a very similar task to Dean's customization from 2008 (yeah, 2008, I checked). It adds a single link on the district menu to a page that helps manage your drop downs. What's more, you can enter in drop downs that already exist and they'll show up as well.

Custom Reports Bundle Grading 4.0.1

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

What's new
The reports have been updated to look and feel more like PowerSchool native pages.
