Running List of minor tweaks and bug fixes

This is a chronological list of corrections we made to the Foundry product for your reference. The corrections are grouped by date of release of update bundles.


Minor tweaks and bugs addressed in our June 15, 2018 update

  • Creating a new experience will now generate a message that includes a reference to the experience in the message subject for easy identification. It also now includes the name of the user who created the message, plus a more extended description of the experience created.
  • We enhanced the user activity feed to make it more meaningful. It now includes an identification of what the activity was about (task, time log, etc.).
  • We corrected some issues reported by customers with creating time logs and attaching evidence of work to an experience that were created as a result of software tool upgrades. 
  • We investigated and resolved user reported issues with generating summary and detail transcripts.
  • We resolved a user reported issue with editing of saved experience requests by updating the software tool involved.
  • We corrected a customer reported issue with experiences where adding a task didn't pre-populate with the experience members names. 
  • We corrected an issue with reporting time from within a student page where no student was selected in the popup window and an error message briefly appeared.
  • We corrected an issue where long scale labels were not displaying correctly in the Performance page bar charts. 

Build 2758


Minor tweaks and bugs addressed in our June 7, 2018 update

  • Some users were experiencing clicking on 'unread' messages would open the list of all messages, read and unread.
  • Some customers were challenged in adding time  to a calendar. We reconnected the parts of this mechanism.
  • A customer reported the inability to add a transfer record for a new student. The student had not been created yet. We improved the workflow, so that a student MUST be created first, before adding content to its record.
  • Some customers reported challenges with editing and saving calendar content. This is now corrected.

  • A number of teachers were not able to access results when evaluating student experiences.
