Student Centered Class Asst App Updates
The most recent updates include:
- ALL VERSIONS (~8/22/2023): Pinch to Zoom on seating charts now save the zoom level. Android: Pinch to zoom improved on seating charts (there were bugs, now fixed).
- IOS (formerly iPad) version 2.58 corrects some issues with iPhone support, and adds pinch to zoom on most seating charts (already on android version) & on student lists on "Add Students" page, you can now tap a student name to edit that name (not on android yet).
- IOS (formerly iPad) version 2.50 adds iPhone Support
- IOS Version 2.10 corrects the blank launch screen by adding an icon
- IOS version 2.08 Adds the ability to move students to a different class (Android Already Had This)
- IOS version 2.06 and Android Updated as well: Renamed "Track Homework" to "Homework Tracking" and "Track Attendance" to "Attendance Tracking" which makes the first word of the option the more important word in identifying what the options do -- in other words, it might make using it easier.
- IOS version 2.05 - Renamed 'Seating Charts' menu option to more appropriate 'Manage Seating Chart', because when pressing that option you are only managing the seating chart for the selected class, not plural "charts". This is consistent with the Android version which was already worded that way, and this change makes documentation more consistent across platforms.
- IOS version 2.02 - Now saves the pinch to zoom level on viewing randomly picked students (android version already had this)
- IOS version 2.01 now matches the Android version of app attendance tap order --
rather than: Present->Late->Absent->Excused.
- IOS version 2.00 corrects the inability to scroll to see group lists longer than one screen in length.
- New color for attendance to mark 'excused absences' on IOS and on Andorid too.
- Improvements to printing seating charts on both platforms.
- Custom seating layouts beyond row/column. These layouts you start with initial row-column seats and reposition them anywhere on the seating chart by drag and drop. This is different than the option where you reassign seats with drag and drop.
- Importing a list of students from a plaintext (.txt) file (this cannot be a formatted text file like a word document or rich text file, must be plaintext). Google docs is capable of exporting to plaintext, Notepad in Windows works in plaintext, and mac's 'textedit' can edit plaintext only if you select the menu option to make plaintext. The file should contain names and only only 1 name per line. Ideally, this should be entered "last-name, first name" however if you put "first-name last-name" it may work as well (not guaranteed).
