Workspace Release Notes - August 26, 2015 Follow

What's New in Workspace

  • Tool tips added to the icons in the navigation at the top of the page to make these easier to understand.
  • You can now add icons to cards. This can be used to create visual links between cards, i.e. this goal applies to this activity; make workspaces more visually appealing to younger learners; or even to indicate the order in which activities should be done. See how to add icons here.
  • If a link is added to an evidence card, when a learner clicks the link it will mark the evidence as having been started and show the learner a submit button so they can indicate when they are done. This means you can now add links to Google Forms, external websites and have them tracked as activity within a Workspace.
  • Learners can now add attachments to Group Evidence cards.
  • Workspace is now available in French.
  • When opening documents Workspace checks the document permissions and makes any changes necessary to allow teachers/learners on that Workspace to view the document. These changes also improve visibility for Administrators who now get temporary access to documents in a Workspace.
  • All cards in a Workspace are now able to be deleted by the teacher regardless of whether work has been started.

Bug Fixes and Other Changes

  • Fix for returning learner work in bulk. Teachers will now be able to use the summary screen to return work to multiple students, without experiencing 'activity already started' errors.
  • Teachers and learners with mixed-case email addresses were experiencing issues accessing Workspaces. This has now been fixed.
  • The assessed work documents were showing snapshots of the document rather than the actual document and so recent changes were not showing. This has now been fixed.
  • We have added a credit to our error page for the creator of the Sad Kiwi image. Thank you Hayes Roberts!
  • Fixed a bug where clicking on a link in an evidence card caused the link on the card to disappear.
  • Fixed a bug where learners were unable to submit evidence.
  • When an Administrator was in a Workspace learner evidence was displaying twice on each evidence card.
  • Fixed an issue where opening Google slides documents attached to an evidence card resulted in an error.
  • Due dates were displaying badly on learner Workspaces, these have now been tidied up.
  • Fixed a bug where learners weren’t able to add evidence to a group card created by a teacher.
  • When selecting a start or due date the calendar picker was displaying in a completely different area on the page. This has been fixed so you no longer have to play hide and seek to find it.
  • On the Groups page the styling had devolved causing great sadness to our designers. This is now prettier.
  • When deleting a card there was a styling glitch that showed a black box on the page. This is fixed.
  • Lengthy learner email addresses were breaking over multiple lines. This is now fixed.
  • A "string not long enough for this transformation" error was showing when editing some cards on a Workspace, changes have been made to handle this more gracefully.
