Comments

I just noticed that one of my courses shows up on the native Course Tally in PowerScheduler, but is does not show in the PSCB version. Are there any parameters that the plug in keys on that I should check on the course?

In PowerScheduler check the Course preference setup for the missing course. Confirm that Terms offered and other information has been entered correctly.

Thanks Rob, That was the problem. There was no term associated with the course. Once we added it it showed up. Thank you.

Hi,
Has anyone seen any documentation about how to mass import recommendations? We have criteria where if students pass an exam type they qualify for a class and it would be much easier to mass upload all students who meet that criteria than have department heads review and add individually. Really struggling to find in PowerSource or through DDA/Data Import Manager. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi,
We put in two sets of course requests for students and it is not pulling into this report. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot? Thanks!

Hi,
I added future course requests for two students and I ran the report to see the tallys and it did not run. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot? Thanks!

Confirm that you PowerScheduler setup has been fully completed for the 20-21 school year.

Confirm that the course list displays a Terms Offered value for all courses.

Yes it works, thank you! Is there anything in the works where we could see a report of a group of students and the classes they met the prereqs for? Or do you know what table I can pull to get that data? Thanks!

PSCB has no plans to to develop this type of report. I'm not sure which table is being used to store this information.

Is there something I am doing wrong? I do not see the link Scheduling: Requests Future Year link after I have enabled the customization

Nancy L Van Volkenburg

The Requests Future Year link should appear under Scheduling on the student navigation menu.

If you have enabled the plugin and the link does not appear, you may have a previously customized more2.html file that preventing the link from displaying.

Hi,
So we were playing around with this report putting in recommendations on the Admin side. When you do this, department does not pull in and it space is blank. If departments are viewing by the drop downs provided, they may miss a bunch of recommendations. Can we figure out a way that those providing recommendations from the admin side fall under a department? Thanks!

The next update will include both admin and teacher created recommendations for a selected department. Update is set for publication next week.

Hi Rob,
I updated and re-ran this report to see if I could search by department for someone on the admin side, it does not work. She is also a teacher, so I select her name and select all departments it runs. But then when I select her department (Math) it does not work. Any ideas? Could it be because we added it before your update? Should we delete and re-enter?

Run the course recommendations report in PowerScheduler. The PSCB - Custom Reports (Schedule FY) version will be released later this week.

I love this plugin! Would it be possible to add a report for admins to generate one pdf report that includes all students (separated by student)? I'm asking because due to COVID 19 our counselors need and easy way to send course requests to parents and students. We already have BrightArrow installed and it has the ability to parse and send reports out by student as long as the student's student_number is on the report.

If you install the Mass Print Student Screen plugin (By Adam Larsen) you can mass print the Student Requests Future Year page for a selected group of students.

The Mass Print Student Screen plugin is available for download at Powersource.
