Install Instructions - Custom Page Management:

To upload an entire zip you’ll have to be on PowerSchool 7. Then the steps are as follows:

Switch to District Office.
Use one of the 2 methods below to get to the import/export screen. I would click the export button on the screen listed below to make a backup of your current customizations so you have a backup copy.
A. PS Administrator->Custom Pages->Import/Export
B. District->Localization Administration->Import/Export Customizations
Export the current customizations as a backup.
After you have done that, click browse and select the PDS (or other customization) zip and then click import.

NOTE - The following steps will need to be done if using CPM, because of a bug in PowerSchool, to enable all the bundle features.
1. In CPM navigate to \scripts\tabletools\ click Add then Create Folder with the name swf, if it doesn't already exist.
2. Upload copy_cvs_xls_pdf.swf and copy_cvs_xls.swf from the \scripts\tabletools\swf folder from the unzipped download.
3. navigate to \images\css\theme\crm-css\ click Add then Create Folder with the name images, if it doesn't already exist.
4. Upload all the files from the \images\css\theme\crm-css\images folder from the unzipped download.

Install Instructions - Custom Webroot:
Unzip the downloaded file and place the included files in the same folder structure that exists in the zip in your data\custom\webroot folder.

No, there isn't a list. But you could take the version you installed, unzip it and it'll show you all the files it installed. I can give you some hints at things to look for:

1. Anything in the /admin/dashboards folder as that entire folder was created by CRB
2. /admin/reports/[folder that isn't crb] -> if it's blue in CPM then it's brand new and likely was added by CRB. I say likely in that it's possible you or someone you work with added a file in there. The nice part about CRB is that it was easy to add new reports to it.

I will re-enable the link for this old version. However if you didn't have this exact version installed you may have a slightly different list. For the most part this is the list of files though.

How can I uninstall this? Is that possible?

That depends on how you installed it in the first place. Was it custom/web_root or CPM? If it was CPM you'll need to log into CPM and delete all the files you find in the zip folder (you can re-download if you no longer have that zip). If you're only uninstalling so you can upgrade to the new version you only need to remove the reporttabs.html file. The rest are good to clean up but shouldn't stop you from upgrading.

If you installed via custom/web_root simply go in and remove the files from their current location. You can see the files you're looking for by downloading this version and uncompressing the zip file. That will show you all the files in the folder structure. Follow that same structure in your custom/web_root and remove the corresponding files. Again, this isn't necessary to upgrade but it is a good practice to clean up your custom/web_root a little. The only necessary one to remove for upgrading is /admin/reports/reporttabs.html

Schools with Rotating Days (A/B) scores are being combined by the period/teacher. Can this be broken out by Day? or add an additional parameter to choose the day?

Example: Teacher A is teaching Geometry 1(A) and Algebra Honors on 1(B) day. On the dashboard Period 1 is combining all scores for both days/classes into one average.

We Appreciate ALL you do and provide. Any assistance is appreciated.

Since I've updated to PS 8, I've noticed a problem with the student course request report. On the print outs, page 3 is narrowed by about 3% width. Page 4 is an additional 3%( relative to page 1) narrower, and it keeps shrinking every subsequent page. I've tried IE and Safari and they seem to be fine, I just do everything in Firefox so hoping it's something simple to fix.
Is there hope for CRB 4 updates to the schedule reports?

When I am adding the info we want on our “student course request report” that we are using to mass print the rising 9th grader options, it is coming out on 2 pages (with the 2nd page blank)… I REALLY want it on one page if possible…I have tried it in Mozilla and in Chrome….any suggestions?

Since there aren’t any 8th graders with requests out there, I just try it with my own child, Michael Navel, and I finally got it to fit on one page (at 90%) but the second page still comes out…?

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks.

I have two "Custom Reports" Tabs showing on my reports page. Any suggestions for troubleshooting this issue? From what I can see, I have the reporttabs.crb.report.tab.txt in the reports file, not in the CRB file. Is this correct? I cannot see this duplicated anywhere else.

I cannot install. I get this: Plugin file contains an unrecognized file: admin/dashboards/attcntdashboard/attcount.xml
