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.
Version History:

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

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

PowerScheduler Mass Enroll Dependent Sections

This customization adds the ability to enroll students in the dependent sections for a section when adding a course.section to a group of students using the Schedule Mass Enroll function in PowerScheduler. In order to enroll students in the dependent sections with the Schedule Mass Enroll page you will need to use the course.section option on the page. To help find this information a search box has been added. Entering part of a Course Name, Teacher Name or even Course Number will find the available sections and automatically fill in the course.section field.

Cool Enhancement idea

Brian noticed a cool enhancement request and I thought we could help you find it a little. Chris has posted a picture of what he's suggesting (a very nice picture btw) on PowerSource so go there to see what he means. It's a good idea, I like it. Lets vote it up so it catches Pearson's attention! Details of the enhancement request is below

Emerging Issue PS 7.2 - RESOLVED

Update: has been released to resolve the issue seen in 7.2. If you are using you should upgrade immediately.

PowerSchool 7.2 has been pulled due to a issue with importing data that is stored in the CLOB field type. If you are using PS 7.2 on your production server DO NOT use AutoComm, Quick Import or Import using Template.
