This is great! I built something similar in SQLReports, but having it right here allows less clicks. Thank you!

After you click theres no easy way to get back to the main screen. Can we add breadcrumbs?

Click on the PowerSchool SIS icon in the upper left of the page. This will return you to the PowerTeacher Start page.

Hello,
I really like this plugin, but we have double column headers showing. The top row is the old labels, and the bottom row includes what this plugin adds (Term, Enrollment, etc...). So, I'm not sure if Version 1.1 includes all that it should?

This would indicate that you have previously customized Teacher Home page installed on the server.

This customization is conflicting with the PSCB page fragment customization you have installed.

Use CPM and navigate to the teacher folder.
You should find a customized home.html file.
After making a copy of the customized file, it can be deleted.

Hi Rob,
The home.html file in our teachers folder is the original, not a customized one. And, this file from the plugin is just supposed to customize the column headers, correct?
\teachers\home.PSCB_PT_custom_links.content.footer.txt

Yes, the file from the plugin is just supposed to customize the column headers and add other information.

There may be an another custom page fragment that is conflicting with the PSCB one.

If you would like to schedule a Zoom session to review this issue, I’m available Monday, 3/28 at 3:00 pm (EST). If this works for you, just send a Zoom invite to pscb.development@gmail.com.

Hello,

Our high school teachers really rely on this plugin, but when I upgraded our SIS to 21.11.4, the headers were off so I disabled your plugin. We got push back that the teachers want it back, so I looked for an update and was relieved to see you had one! Unfortunately, when I installed it, we are still having an issue with the column headings. I tried the steps from comments above, but still no luck. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Cathy Grohocki

The next release of the plugin will address the display issues with 21.11.4. Update will be posted this week.

This is great! Quick question...is there any way to hide the Daily Attendance columns? Our school only uses Meeting.

You can use Custom Page Management (CPM) to manually remove the Daily Attendance columns in the class_attendance_summary.html file.

CPM location: admin/students/class_attendance_summary.html

Thank you, Rob! CPM always makes me nervous/uncomfortable but very helpful to know that It can be removed ;o)
