Comments

I have installed/updated this plugin multiple times. We are using the Fees reports only from your PSCB plug ins. When Running the Fees List, occasionally all 3 options present; copy data, export csv, make current display. MOST of the time, only Copy Data displays with the results. But the Copy Data does not work. We need to move seamlessly from school to school, run the report(s), then output to Excel.

Please advise - we can't figure out a pattern of what to do to make the export csv reliably work. Or minimally, what can we do to make the copy data output option work consistently.

I am getting reports from many of my users that they can only see the Copy Data button, when I (as a Group 9 admin) can always see Copy Data, Export (two buttons), and Make Selection.

The HTML 5 Buttons for Copy Data, Export to CSV and Make Current Student Selection should appear on the Fees List and Transactions List Reports. I am not able to duplicate the issue you described at any other location that is using the Fees plugin.

What browser are you using? Have you tested the fee reports with aother browsers?

Please try the following.
Delete the Base Resources plugin.
Re-install the Base Resources plugin.
Download and install one of the other PSCB plugins (Misc would be a good option)
Run and test the HTML buttons with the reports bundle you choose.

If the buttons work in the other reports, we can explore the Fee reports issue further.

Hello,
I uploaded PSCB- Base Resources and added entire plugin.xml then activate it. Add zip file, put pscb folder in web_root and put pscb_init.txt in wildcards. Where will I find the feature in PowerSchool? Do I need to add other customization files to make the base resources to work?

The PSCB - Base Resources contains various scripts and images that are used in all PSCB customization and report plugins. In order to use the resources you need to install one of the PSCB Customization or Report Bundles.

I installed the base and home page plugins, the Enrollment and Scheduling (Current year) show up fine but I can't see the Historical Grades or Attendance reports. I do get the settings for attendance Codes, Meeting Attendance Codes and Grade Reporting Terms but the links for the reports do not show up.

Fran DiDavide

The links for Historical Grades and Student Attendance Pages are located on the student navigation menu.

After installing the base for the bundle and several of the newer plugins I have not been able to access the reports. Now, it appears in the navigation but the configuration for meeting and daily attendance have been configured but not working.

Please confirm that the PSCB - Custom Reports (_Home Page) plugin has been installed and enabled. After confirmation, read the following.

PSCB - Custom Reports (_Home Page)

Description

This plugin installs the following PSCB components.

(1) A folder entitled Reports_PSCB which houses all the PSCB Custom Report files.

(2) A PSCB Home Page which displays links to the menu page of each report bundle.
Note: When a PSCB Custom Reports bundle is installed, a menu link for that bundle is added to the Home Page.

(3) A PSCB Custom Reports link to the left navigation menu on the PowerSchool start page.

(4) Links to preference pages to be used in various PSCB reports.
Daily Attendance Codes
Meeting Attendance Codes
Grade Reporting Terms.

The preference pages are school based and preferences should be entered and saved for each school. Once completed, the preferences are use for the following reports.

PSCB Custom Reports - Daily Attendance Codes Setup
Attendance: Daily Attendance - Count / Points

SCB Custom Reports - Meeting Attendance Codes Setup
Attendance: Meeting Attendance - Count / Points

PSCB Custom Reports - Reporting Term Setup
Grading: Class - Grades Verification
Grading: Stored Grades - By Course/Teacher
Scheduling (Current Year): Sections - Details Report

I love the new html 5 buttons that are now available. I have a much older version of probably the oldest report bundle out there all of which hav ethe Flash based buttons. Since chrome is not supporting that coming soon, it is wonderful that you made this available!

Problem is - 3 or 4 of our highly utilzed reports (some even daily by several staff at all locations) have been highly customized and altered by staff before me and myself included.

I was wondering if there is an easy way to point an older report to use the newer Buttons by simply installing this package and pointing those 3 or 4 reports to use the newest TableTools buttons.

I am going to look into this myself - but wondered if this is something that sounds reasonable. And if so, do you have any advice?

You can send a copy of the files you want modified to: mpmras.pscb@gmail.com.

I will add the PSCB coding for the HTML 5 buttons to one of files. This will provide a model for modifying additional files.
