Additional small bug fixes and enhancements were pushed today, including the following:
- Plugged In PL Builder actions to Mixpanel to track utilization
- SI Titles shortened in News Feed, and options to share SI Status Changes removed unless SI is marked as Complete
- Updates to Cross-District users, including marking them with an asterisk (*) and a note on the District Users pages (as shown in screenshot for this post)
Yesterday we released the PL Builder, and today we followed it up with a handful of additional items. Today's follow-up push will allow us to assign MT Modules to specific district cohorts (like cohorts set up exclusively for coaches or principals). It also added some PL Builder-related features, including a few small bug fixes, a "District PL Goals" filter on the Micro-Certifications on Dashboard, and a way to see what items have been edited within the Tiles in the PL Builder.
New tools have been added to the Attachments section of the Tasks pages. Attachments can now be previewed, edited, and deleted, and links can be added in addition to files. Note that the uploader for task attachments uploaded prior to today will be marked as "Unknown" in the preview popup. Moving forward, the uploader's name will appear, and only the uploader can edit or delete the task attachment.
A few of our Success Indicators (SIs 6, 7, 8, 9, and 11) now have only two status options: "Not Started" and "Complete." This change is due to reported confusion on the correct status for SIs that have to do with "beginning" a conversation or an effort. Either the conversation has been started, or it hasn't. If the conversation has been started, the SI can be marked as Complete, even through the conversation may be ongoing.
Note, nothing changes for districts who have already updated the status for these SIs - so some districts might still have them marked as "In Progress." But moving forward, if any new or existing districts go to update the status on these, their only options will be "Not Started" and "Complete." And reminder, only DCF Managers and Driver Owners can mark the SI as Complete.
Good news - we've just release the update allowing districts to add their own custom PL Goals to SI 31!
Districts will be able to add Modules to each of their goals when we do our next big release of the PL Builder. Today's release just includes the first step - districts can add their 4 goals (up to 500 characters of text each) to SI 31, and those goals will populate to the related SIs throughout the PL Driver.
Our newest module, on Pedagogy, is now available in the platform. Notice that the module numbers have been removed with this addition, and all e-learning interactions have been updated to include links to the MT Glossary of PL terms.
Also, note that the Related SIs have been updated, with new relationships highlighted in the PL Driver. You can check them out in the platform as shown here, and download the revised PDF here.
Heads up, the new Professional Learning SIs are now available in the platform. We'll add them to the Related SIs view later this week or next.
