I learned today that the sort feature on the Conflict Matrix has been removed and is not going to be added back.
This is a BIG efficiency issue as the report will then print out numerically by course number rather than alpha by course name. When our teams meet to build the next year master schedule, we rely on printed copies of this report to place our singletons and doubletons. Each person has a copy and we use it extensively, adding notes and info on periods, etc.
Having to search through the report to find specific courses will now be unnecessarily time consuming and frustrating. If you cannot add the sort feature back, can you at least change it to run alpha by course name? When you have a large district with hundreds of courses, results by course number is not efficient. Thank you.
Thank you for sharing the feedback.
The sorting capability was removed as it was found to be not implemented. Would you please confirm, if the sort functionality was working for you previously?
Yes, the sort feature has always worked for us here in Puyallup School District! And it's a VITAL part of our process to be able to sort the results by COURSE DESCRIPTION. We are desperately hoping/counting on this feature being re-instated soon so that we can use it.
Note that it did only alphabetize the course that is used as the heading for each section, and it would be nice if it would alphabetize the conflicting courses within each grouping, but we can live without that.
Thank you for sharing this information.
