It would be quick and convenient if there was a link in the cases that drove the user to the Case Portal. Specifically ticket auto reminders for cases that have been waiting 7 or 14 days.  When receiving these emails, the case number does very little to jog the memory.

 

thanks for your consideration.

Hi! @MaryEllenR 

 

We value and appreciate your suggestion.  We are excited to hear ideas to improve the resources.  While there is not currently a feature of ticket auto-reminders for cases, we are happy to share your feedback to review whether the feature can be built.

Release notes need some better proofreading.  We just received this regarding an eFinancePlus update. The issue with the text is noted in green below.

 

ACA 1095 reporting

  • If you are providing ICHRA reporting (new for Tax Year 2020) once this January 8, 2021 release is installed, you may to create Employee 1095s. 
  • 1095-C forms printing is available in this January 8, 2021 release.  You may create and maintain 1095s.
  • 1095-C Electronic filing will be available in the January 22, 2021 release.  You may create and maintain 1095s.1095-C forms printing is available in this January 8, 2021 release.

It appears to be a copy-paste error. While I can reasonably surmise that the line item should just end after "January 22, 2021 release" and the rest is just a duplicate of the preceding line, this isn't the first time I've noticed awkward/confusing phrasing and typos in release notes.

 

Not a critical issue this time around, but who knows what the next one will be?  Better to get ahead of the review process now than when an emergency strikes.

Re: PowerSchool Community Feedback and Suggestions

Is there a way to take attendance by marking students "present" instead of "absent"? As students come into the room (or virtual classroom), it would be much easier to check them off as they show up. This is especially true in a virtual setting because their name order is not the same on PS as it is on our virtual setting.

Hi @jtingler,

 

Thank you for your question!

 

It is possible to take attendance by marking students "present" instead of "absent" with a present code.  PowerSchool assumes attendance as present unless it is marked absent/with a code.  Therefore, you should be able to create your own Present code and use that.
