Comments

So is PSCB replacing the CRB? noticed that all the crb categories seem to be moving over to this.
Thanks

Hopefully this will provide some clarification.

a) The CRB customizations will still be available for download from PDS.

b) If CRB is not installed, I would suggest the user download and enable the PSCB plugins. PSCB is a collection of newly developed pages, reports and updates/enhancements to most of the CRB customizations.

c) If CRB is installed, the user can also install the PSCB plugins. The PSCB setup is completely independent of CRB. PSCB uses a separate navigation link and home page for the report bundles. Once PSCB is installed, the user can decide which customizations they want to use moving forward.

I have installed the base and the custom report home page and I have installed enrollment, incidents and PowerSchduler plug ins. However, only the enrollment report shows up when I click on the PSCB link on the left menu. Help please.

The location of each plugin link is listed in the description of the PSCB customization.

The Students Incidents Summary link is on the student navigation menu.

The PowerScheduler PSCB Reports link is on the the PowerScheduler start page menu.

Would it be possible to add gender, race, and ethnicity to this so that it can be used for CRDC?

Thanks!

I have found that the Phone Number Search screen only returns the correct value when only the last 4 digits are entered. When the whole phone number is entered, either with our without hyphens, No search values are found.
Is this a known issue with this report?

Enter the phone number(s) only - no spaces, hyphens, or other characters.

Does the phone number search pull from all phone number fields in PS or just the home phone number?

The report searches all student custom fields where the field name contains "phone".

Thank you so much for all your work on these reports! We love them. We have noticed that the phone number search does not search core fields like motherdayphone and fatherdayphone unless the student was in the system prior to the core field migration which causes confusion because some motherdayphone numbers will be in the result but not all of them. It would be nice if it included all motherdayphone numbers or excluded all motherdayphone numbers.

Hello,

Not a biggie but thought someone should know:
• Activity Membership List - View membership list for a selected school activty.
The last activity is spelled wrong ;)

Thanks. The typo will be corrected in the next release of the plugin.

Hi,
This report is great! But it would be helpful if we could select all activities and all students and their activities would populate. We have someone that manages all student activities, their attendance and GPAs, so having 1 list would save her some time. Additionally, is there a way we could get attendance percent data in the report? And GPA if possible?

This request has been added to the PSCB enhancement list.

Any chance you guys will be adding Field Verification Report so it looks at the old clob fields as well as extended student fields in the near future?

Sorry, PSCB Development has plans to incorporate the CLOB fields into this verification report.

The phone number search gives me zero results no matter what I put in the search. I'm even using a phone number from one of my student contacts and it shows no results - no spaces, no hyphens or even phone number exactly as shown in PowerSchool.

This report is not compatible with the current Student Contacts fields configuration.

Plans for updated report has been added to the PSCB enhancement list.

I have downloaded the plugin and it looks great. Only 2 activities are displaying in the drop down menu. Am I missing something? I have multiple activities set up.

The drop-down only displays activities that have student assignments.

If you do not see an activity name that indicates no students have yet been assigned to that activity.

I have multiple activities that students are enrolled in. Band, football Pe, Chamber Singers, Basketball, etc. Only AOSF and National Honor Society show up.

Check your activity setup.

When creating the activities were they assigned to a single school or all schools?

If activities were created and assigned to a single school, you will only see the activities assigned to that school.

Hi
I'm loving these reports - one request, any chance of extending the age report to give students of a particular age on a certain date. We often have to generate a list of all students eg over age 16 on a given date, and it would be amazing if there was a report to do this! I feel the 'age' report is getting close to this!
Thanks for all your work on these reports,
Gayle

Age calculation date will be included in the next release of this report.
