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.

Installing plugins

PowerSchool added the ability for us to give you customizations installed as plugins. This is great for CPM users as you can install and remove very easily. Previously CPM users could only remove a customization by deleting the files one by one. With plugins all the files installed with the plugin is removed if you delete the plugin making management a lot easier. But with this change comes some new directions. Since PDS is building all its new customizations as plugins we thought it appropriate to give you an easy place for directions.

Long overdue update to CRB

The Custom Reports Bundle (CRB) has been stagnant for a long time. Most of this is due to the fact that I no longer work at a single school and thus have less time as many schools need my time. But I've had the urge to do a major update for a while and I'm writing to let you know what that is. The CRB has been one giant zip file that was CPM friendly but could also be uploaded to the custom/web_root. If you upload into CPM you are stuck having to delete each file one at a time to get rid of it. No longer. When the new CRB comes out it will be as a plugin.

Photo Export Utility

This is the Export that was posted here before that Brian Andle had posted, but I think it needs to be updated to work with current version of PS.

Plug-in Auto Assign Teacher ID

When creating new staff in PowerSchool you are required to assign an ID number. The included replacement page will auto assign a number based ID. The page uses SQL to determine what the next valid id number should be.

Custom Reports Bundle 3.4.4

Version 4.0 is out and is modular and built for PowerSchool 7.9 and above. If you are looking for the reports bundle go here unless you are on PowerSchool 7.8 or older. This version will remain open only for users who absolutely need these reports and are on an older version of PowerSchool. If you can wait we recommend you do wait and install after upgrading PowerSchool to at least 7.9

These set of custom pages allow user to quickly create dashboard items by simply entering sql statements using the PowerSchool web interface. You can create 4 types of Portlet’s; Chart, Lists, Validate and External. There are 5 premade portlets you can import to play with and customize.

PowerSchool - FireFox compatibility alert

I typically run the beta track of FireFox on my Mac. While working on Power Data Solutions Locker Management customization I noticed that FireFox 14 (currently in beta) and PowerSchool versions prior to 7.2 experience a specific jQuery issue. Functions that use jQuery Ajax don't work correctly. Examples of this function are Change School, Daily Bulletin modal popup and other Ajax related functions.

Some of the PDS that would also be affected are:

One Stop Attendance
Report Bundle
